Well, I am new to this site and new to owning a tractor. I recently bought a 2013 JD 1023e with 71 hrs on it. It came with the 60d AutoConnect deck and a 60" rear blade. For all of that I paid $8,750, which I felt was a steal. Am I right or way off? I just bought a Titan 3pt drawbar off Amazon for $88, so I could pull my trailer around my 10 acres and to pull my log splitter. I know that Titan is a company that many around GTT despise, but I am going to give it a try on this little item. If it works that's great, if not I'll just get the John Deere brand or make my own. I'll let everyone know.
Now, I was wondering if you could all enlighten me on some things about this machine since as I said it is my first tractor so I'm a virgin. What implements do you think are must-have? What modifications are must-do? What are some problems with this particular model? What are some pros? Are there any serious defects with this tractor that I should be aware of? Are there any functional differences between the 1025/1026, or are they just comfort differences?
Thank you all in advance, and I look forward to being a contributing member of the site!
