I got a wild hair and put a bid in on a 2025r in an auction nearby. I won it. Went and picked it up Friday. It's really clean, doesn't seem like it was used much. It still has the little nobbies on the tires. :)

I'm not a farmer nor do I have a large plot of land. Just the one acre lot in a semi-country neighborhood outside the city.

I've always coveted the 1025r with a loader, which is why I've bid on this one. I'm now looking through the forums and YouTube videos to learn more about the tractor and its capabilities.

Well it's a Bit More Capable In 3point Lift Capacity and Loader lift Capacity then the Current Generation II 2025R. Your Gen I is a true Small Frame Compact don't know what your Plans are for it But as far as Mowing it is Not auto Connect Capable. But a drive over decks was made for it But you still have to get off the Tractor to Mount the deck drive shaft. It does have Lower Hydraulic Capacity as far as Gallons Per Minute compared to the GEN II 2025R. But the 3point Lift height more than Makes up for the Lower Hydraulic GPM. The 2025R Gen II has some slightly better ergonomics and a High GPM for Hydraulics But the Limited Cat 1 is still a Head-scratcher on the Gen II

Deere Made a 270A Backhoe 270A Use You 3point to Mount it similar to the 270B Made for the 2032R & 2038R.

There Just a decent Tractor I think You'll be happy with it (y)

Immediately move the lights on the ROPS to the inside: easy to do and you'll save having to replace one of them, very expensive.

DO NOT run around with the loader up like that.

Get the driveshaft Ujoints done by the dealer. You won't be able to get at the front one, and likely won't be able to get a grease gun onto the rear's zerk. Did mine at 200 hours. Will do again in 200-400 hours. Blew apart the front Ujoint on the 4010 (a 2019E by today's naming) at 9 years and 660 hours.

In spite of what Ralph says, you can do the u-joints greasing yourself. It’s not easy, probably took me 45 minutes the first time, than half that the second time for me. They have been known to fail if not greased though.

Isn’t this model the same as the 2305 in that regard? I got the Lincoln 5803 grease tip as recommended here and it takes me 2 minutes to grease the front and rear fittings on my 2305. With a standard fitting it would be pretty much impossible

Many congrats, and I'm not only green for Deere, but green with envy.
I'd say you now have enough tractor to take care of your place.
