Howdy!

I just signed the papers on a new 1025R, mechanical mower lift + 120R FEL, Box blade, 60D autoconnect mower w/ autoconnect PTO and load n go, fixed 42” forks, what do I need now?

I understand the major attachments depend on how I intend to use the tractor, but what accessories, tools, supplies, etc should I also get?

I’ve ordered or bought or have:
  • descent basic tools
  • angled pliers
  • 250 ft-lb torque wrench
  • front & back tow hooks
  • 6” step
  • left & right FEL mounted handles
  • diff lock pedal
  • chain hooks for FEL bucket
  • 50 hour filter + fluids
  • rhinohide canopy
  • lock’n’lube
  • lube shuttle + MOS grease
  • diesel gas cans

what else should a new tractor owner look at or be sure to get?

Thank you!

Good advise. I’m expecting to pick up the tractor by the end of the week. My honey do list for the new tractor is, shall we say not short... 😀

With the change to ordering stuff online and the associated lead times, I prefer to stock what I need vs being down for a week or two... Also the finance committee has green lighted the tractor, but in a month or three... 😀

I did include the jd ballast box. I’m not expecting any really heavy FEL jobs. Mostly sand, gravel for building walkways. I’m hoping to avoid fill the rear wheels as sometimes I need to mow some soft ground.
I also did include a iMatch.
A toothbar I’m still researching.
I debated on the third function. Decided how often it would be useful, ex with a grapple, the seldom need didn’t justify the cost.
A wheel spinner and battery tender are on my list, I just forgot to list them.
Thank you

Forks are included in my package. Everyone I talked with have said to get them.

I‘m on the notification list for Ken’s hooks and step...

Thank you!

Got it!
but then my luck held, got it home, went to unload and the ignition key wouldn’t turn. They had included the wrong keys in the bag with the owners manual. So it looks like a first for me, reading the owners manual before using...

I think the 1 series uses the same key as the mowers and the 2-4 series uses a different key.

Got the new keys. Unloaded from the trailer! Whooop, :)
let the games begin!

Played with installing/uninstalling bucket, forks, box blade.
Installed iMatch. the included bushings are about 1/8” too long the fit on the box blade
Knocked out first two chores, scraped dirt off of driveway and moved some branches to the burn pile.
Ran my ROPS into a branch. o_O
Too wet to try the mower... tomorrow...
Off to TSC for shorter bushings...
