Pro's and Con's with no context is hard to answer. There's a great thread that has covered just about anything you could think of doing with a SCUT in the SCUT sub-forum.

Vague Pro's/Con's:
Pros: It's very capable and will do much of what the average large property (~1-5 acres) homeowner will need.
Cons: It's expensive, the ride to some is rough due to the tire size.

Welcome to GTT.

Pros: I have a '20 1025R TLB and does everything I expect of it. It has really transformed my homestead. I wouldn't have been able to make these improvements without it.

Cons: I haven't found any

Welcome aboard!

Just hit 20 hours on my 2021 1025r TLB.

Little 'Jasiu has proven himself well as a hired hand. The loader lifts a full bucket of landscape stone or logs, the pallet forks move my 600 pound snowplow like it's nothing and the backhoe is digging out stumps and leveling out a mess of land. Today I got a chance to put on the Bxpanded toothbar before heading out to my current grading project. .

The limits so far are not of the tiny tractor but of the greenhorn operator. it's a challenge to learn how operate the controls smoothly and efficiently. Leveling land is a challenge as is grading with both the loader and the backhoe. And it's no Case 590 nor is it a mini ex so it certainly takes smaller bites and requires more relocating to use the backhoe. More fun time!

So far I haven't found any reason to regret my purchase given my smaller property with hills and tight clearances that mandate a small tractor with a lower CG.

Loving every second I get in the seat, which isn't enough!

After 5 years and 300 hours with mine, I would say it has proven to be quite a little workhorse.

The only negative is the ride when cutting grass. I keep the cutting speed down so as to not bruise my old kidneys.

I have a larger tractor for the heavy lifting, but the little Deere handles everything else with alacrity.

Welcome from NW NJ.
Nothing but PROS here. It has made my life so much easier and saved my back at least 1000 times.
The only CON I have is I didn't buy it sooner.
