I signed the papers for my new 1025r today. Then I went toe to toe with the salesman who has always treated me fair and I have tried to be fair with him. I told him that Deere has their PowerGuard warranties on sale till end of August. I told him I wanted the three year for 481. He then explained that all I was getting for that is 1 extra year and free pick up service. I told him my understanding was it added 3 years to the original warranty so I would have 5 years labor and 6 years parts. Then things got interesting. He dug out paper and showed me it was inclusive of the factory warranty. On a 1025 and 2038 the 6 year full warranty is 1240$. I thought I bought that on my 2038 for around 500 but what I bought was a comprehensive warranty if it was wrecked or stolen. And it was only valid has long has I had the 2038 financed, the day I paid it off the comprehensive is done. At that time I had to leave to go to Dr. I am going back in morning and getting this straightened out. I will give him credit he said the amount of use on my trade in showed him I probably don't need it on the new 1025. It had 44 hours in two years. I hope this helps others that saw the sale price and was getting ready to jump. The PowerGuard Residential Warranty is including the factory warranty. It includes free pick up and drop off and no deductible. A three year adds one year to the factory labor, a four year adds two years labor, etc...

I found the same thing with Ford’s extended warranty - it was quite an eye opener.

Let’s say with a new truck I buy a 5 year extended warranty. It’s actually only 2 years extension on the factory 3 year warranty.

I also weighed this with a used truck. Let’s say I buy a 3 year old truck and buy Ford’s 5 year extended warranty. Yup - I am only getting 2 years of warranty.

It’s all a big scam.

I went back this morning and got all the paperwork done. The new 1025r, no Fel, 54" hydraulic mount, wrap around hood guard, they swap over my brush guards and LED lights, front quick hitch mount and block heater. Install new front 3 point hitch and broom on my 2038r. No PowerGuard warranty on the 1025r. I did add the PowerGuard to the 2038r. I got the full 6 year upto 1,000 hours and it ran 1200$. My feeling is with all the computerized stuff on the new 2R series if I have one problem it will pay for its self. It also includes free pick up and delivery. Hopefully I will have them back by Tuesday so I can play with broom Wednesday the 4th

Yes you have to read the fine print. We just bought a Chevy Cruze for a run around car since we were logging some serious miles on our suburban and burning some serious amounts of gas. The dealer offered a 20 year 200k warranty with the car which is what got the wife all fired up to get it. I wanted it because it gets 38 MPG on the highway and doesn't look like you normal econo-box appliance. In order to get that warranty you have to do any and all work with a certified shop, to include oil changes and keep all receipts/records etc. All maintenance has to be done at the prescribed time intervals etc. I do all my own maintenance so I am less than impressed with their requirements and will probably forgoe it and stick with the 3 year 36k warranty GM offers.


So I am curious, why would you trade in a 2 year old 1 series with only 44 hours on it for another one? Was it a lemon? It would appear you are no where near getting your money's worth out of that one!

The main reason I traded is my new 2038r has the 220FEL and I don't need two FEL in the storage and I wanted the 54" hydraulic lift deck. I had my scut almost 2 years and never had the 53" bucket in the dirt. I only used the FEL with pallet forks and my grapple. It was easier to trade than sell the H120. They treated my well.
