New member here from Afton, VA. Will be picking up a 1025R w/120R and 60D MMM in a couple of days. Will use it mostly for mowing about 3 acres around the house but also other small projects getting around in tight areas with the FEL. Thinking about also getting some forks for moving smallish stuff around.

I have a GT235 with the Kawasaki engine that has been good to me for 20+ years but as I keep expanding the mowed area around the house, I wanted something a little bit larger for finish mowing around the house. The GT 235 will be delegated for "trimming" around trees and small areas to large for the 1025R. I have right around 950 hours on the GT235 and I think I'll get plenty more out of her with less than 1 hour per week of trimming work.

Up until now, I have been using my 5085M for stuff around the house, which at around 10,000 lbs with loaded tires and dual rear weights and regular ag tires, is really hard on the lawn unless it has been dry for weeks. The 1025R will be much better suited for landscaping stuff around the house, mulching, etc I think.

I'm not sure about the lift capacity of the 120R, but it probably won't be able to do this: :)

I'll see about posting up a "family pic" once the 1025R gets here.

Anyway, looking forward to hanging out here and share experiences and hopefully be able to help out fellow forum members from time to time!

Welcome from eastern Va. Afton is a very nice area unless there's fog on 64!
