Delivered 4/4/12. 7 hours so far. I've moved 10 yards of dirt with the loader, used the box blade to smooth out the driveway and got some brush hogging done already.
No real complaints yet. Seems to handle everything I'm throwing at it. I'm not using it for belly mowing, using it for mostly tractor purposes. I decided against the 2320 because it had the same engine in a heavier tractor. All the things I need this size tractor to do seems to do it just fine. It doesn't even feel like the bush hog is working behind the tractor. The loader seems fairly capable, and it's super comfortable.
I'm a little anal, so I have a question for other 1026r owners. Where the ROPS comes down past the inside of the fenders, on mine, there is a good 3/8" - 1/2" gap between the ROPS and it touching the inside of the left rear fender.
On the right fender, the ROPS has no gap and is touching the right rear fender. I'm sure this is just due to the fact that tractors ROPS probably don't have perfect fittement, but it still kind of bugs me...ha
I'm mainly concerned that something isn't bent or tweaked from the factory. Can someone else look at the gap on their 1026r and tell me it's like mine?
