Hi, I'm new GTT. I've been on the sister site, WFM, for years. I was contemplating purchasing a used x749, but by the time I equip itmwith everything I need (rear PTO, 3-point, etc) I'm at the price of a new 1025R. I have to say, GTT has the most comprehensive information on JD SCUTs of all the forums I've been researching. So thank you for helping me to spend my money. You may have to help me stay married, too.
Originally, I was going to go with the 60", 7-Iron, mower deck. However, after reading a number of posts and reports of scalping issues with the 60" deck, I'm thinking I should order the 54" deck and that is what the posts I've read tend to confirm. On the other hand, I've read other reviews of the 7-Iron deck that heaped praise on it. Has something changed where the 60" deck would be the better deck? I really don't have room to store a mower only rider in addition the 1025R and the associated attachments.
The other options I'm going to order:
47" Snow Thrower
Independent 3 circuit SCV
Cozy Cab w/glass doors
