    Finally Brought Her Home. New 1025R my first real tractor

    Picked her up from my local dealer, literally live so close that I just drove the tractor home. Here she is:







    I was very pleased with the price I paid, my salesman was very polite and professional and went over all operations with me in extreme detail. I love the tractor, can't wait to have some real fun with it. The only thing I had a problem with is I didn't get a full tank of fuel, not even 1/4 tank, it was filthy when it was delivered, and couple scratches on it I'd love to see them at least try to fix or give me some free paint.

    Besides those small issues I love it, my dad came over and drove it around and loves it, the kids love it, heck I think even my wife loves it.

    Congrats man on the tractor purchase. Sure looks shiny and new in the pictures! Jump on it and before you do anything else just drive it under a tree with low hanging branches. Put a couple scratches on it yourself, let the heart ache of it pass, and then you will be ready for many years of enjoyment with it.

    Congratulations! Fun for the whole family alright. Your weather looks mighty nice compared to mine right now. My 1025 would sink if I pulled it out of the barn. Good on you for splurging for the backhoe, they are very fun to operate and work surprisingly well if you don't try and wrestle with heavy tree roots too much.

    Looks great! And it looks like you have some work waiting on it. If you're going to use it and not just look at it you won't see any scratches after it's used. None that will matter anyway. They will blend right in with the ones you put on it.

    You got that right! I was more proud of my JD than any other tractor I have had. The first BIG scratches hurt a little but I got over it fairly quick. It's impossible to use it and not acquire scratches. I wax the tractor once a year for several reasons. One of those is to help with resale when the time comes, but I suppose the main reason is simply because I like shiny green paint. The waxed surfaces does seem to help limbs, weeds, briars, and everything else that one can encounter slide on the surfaces rather than having a surface they can get some traction on.

    Nice to have it home for the first time, nice and shiny new. Having the wife liking is great, mine thinks it was the best purchase I made. You have the same color and model truck in the back ground as mine. What year Tundra is that. Mine is a 2014.

    I would think living that close to the dealer , that in good business he would want to keep you happy. Yes , scratches do suck , especially the ones that you had no control over.
