I couldn't be more happy with my 1026R. We have 2.22 acres and I mow 1 and the other is trees and over grown. The 60" Auto-connect MMM is great for what I mow. A ZTR would be quicker, but I really enjoy the seat time. The H120 has done what I needed. The lift could be more, but for it's size I'd say it's impressive. I got a 4' County Line brush mower and it works very well on the 1026R. Makes quick work of saplings and overgrowth. I have no regrets! If you have lots of trees the ROPS is little annoying, but when it's folded back you almost don't know it's there.
