Took delivery of my 2017 1025R TLB a couple of weeks ago. First project was to dig up what I thought was a small stump. Turned out to be almost 3 ft deep and about 200 lbs.

Tractor Time with Tim really sold me on this model. Big enough what anything I want to do, but still small enough to get in tight places. I think I'm going to be the popular neighbor now...

Congrats on the tractor, looks like you made a solid choice in equipment to suit your needs. Becoming the popular neighbor occurs almost instantly when the shinny green paint arrives.

Thanks everyone. It's really funny how when I'm driving around I constantly see "opportunities"! We were going out this weekend to get something to eat and as I drove by some homes and businesses I kept thinking to myself "I could fix that" and "Look, a stump!" :laugh:

Congratulations on your new tractor. Very nice setup. Waiting for mine to be delivered hopefully in the next week or so. I didn't go for the backhoe though. Couldn't justify it.

Same here. Everything I read said I should be getting a 3046R and while I'm at it, throw on a cab. But Tim's videos helped me determine the 1025R would be just perfect. There are definitely places I couldn't fit into with a bigger tractor love the 1025R TLB!

I didn't even try to justify it. Bought it anyway and am glad I did.:hide:

Frozen and broken water line from the well to the house, 25 degrees outside, line buried 3 feet, first available plumber in 4 days, 2000$ estimate= 30 mins fix with the 260 backhoe and 8$ worth of pvc pipe and joints.

I will never be without a backhoe again, ever.

Beautiful setup! I didn't get the BH so if you need more jobs I have about 8 stumps you can dig up. You dig them up I'll haul them away. :laugh: I'm just up the road a bit. :hide2:
