After a 10+ week wait, it arrives this afternoon. Will hopefully get home in time to witness the delivery. My 2 yo granddaughter is more
excited than I am. She's been asking my wife for a week about a ride on "Gramps tractor". Dealer went the extra mile by installing the mower deck for free and upgrading to a 53" bucket at no charge. Obligatory pics to follow. :yahoo:

While better things than a new tractor do exist there is nothing like getting a new tractor
Like having your 2 yo granddaughter excited about a new tractor you're getting. Priceless! :good2:

Couple of shots of the arrival. Isn't she cute? More action shots later.
She has to live in the garage for the moment until I get/build a cart for the
backhoe. Never thought about how far the stabilizers stick out and they
won't fit through the 5 foot door on the shed. Doh!!!:bash:

If you have ANY trees or brush, get the guards for the ROPS lights. My rear facing light is trashed because it was outside the guard.

What is the yellow rod at the mower discharge?

Nice ride, you will enjoy it.

Orange ones are easier to find in the grass than green ones (before you run them over with the mower) after they fling off the machine at high speed.:laugh:

Solve both problems by using YELLOW bungees!

That is one sweet machine. You did trigger a question. How big of a door would you need with those stabilizers ?? I never thought about that before. I sure would like to get a back hoe for my 1025r. I think have to do some cutting, but how much?:unknown:

You could probably squeak through a 6 foot opening, but I'd go 7 foot. I can measure the exact distance later tonight.

Another thing you have to watch out for is the fact that those stabilizers like to drift when the tractor's not in use. I nearly took out my door jamb the first weekend I owned mine.

Man, I gotta watch the ROPS going in, and the stabilizers going out. I think it's time for a pole barn.
