I was reading PT Ed's thread from 2014 about the top speed on a 1025R and was disappointed with the many useless responses. I too have to transport mine a few kilometers on a paved road and it's painfully slow, like annoyingly pathetic. My buddy has a Kubota and in high gear it's 2 or 3 times as fast. Just sayin' that JD should really look into this. Loading onto my trailer strapping it down and unloading it is less annoying, but ends up wasting a lot of time.
