Just received my new JD 1025r yesterday and it does look good.
I have been reading this forum for about a year and hopefully I made a good decision.
I purchased a JD 1025r, H120 Font End Loader, JD Box Blade BB2048L, KK 48" Rototiller, JD Ballast Box and iMatch Quick Hitch.

Now I have a whole yard to grade and reseed after that I plan on getting a post hole digger and install a lot of new fence.
Retiring soon so it looks like I will have a new toy to play with and a little more time to get things done.

Any suggestion on safety or operations would be greatly appreciated.

If you have trees and are going to put in fence, I'd put the ROP lights on the inside seeing as you don't have the BH. Start slow in low gear and get used to it. You're going to have fun but don't let to many people know how much fun. Aaah heck yah, let them all see the big smile on your face. Congrats!!! :bigthumb:

Great looking ride. It should serve you well. Good luck on the more time after retirement. I've been retired 14 years and I'm sure the days are getting shorter every year. I don't know how I got everything done before I retired. :unknown:

As far as operations go, I would get some ballast. I see the BB on the back but that is not near enough if you are going to be using that loader. When you do use the FEL keep the loads as low to the ground as practical when you are transporting the load. Very easy to tip over if you are on uneven terrain and moving a heavy bucket of material. I would also consider getting the tires loaded with fluid.

Just use your tractor cautiously until you figure out the limits of the machine and more importantly, yourself. I think far more accidents are caused by operators running out of talent before they run out of machine. Enjoy it, it is a nice looking machine. You will find a wide variety of uses for it, trust me. :bigbeer::bigbeer:

Congrats Ed! It's a versatile tool, you're going to love it.

Noticed you got a box blade, sweet. There are a lot of great YouTube videos of the many ways to use a box blade - every surface of that implement serves an important and unique purpose!

One of the site sponsors here on GTT, Artillian, sells a lot of high quality American made add-ons for your 1025, and they make the lightest and most versatile pallet fork frame and forks, equalling more lifting power. I have my forks on more than my bucket. I'm getting ready to step up to their grapple for the ultimate grippage!

One of your first projects with it will be constructing a new storage building to house all the attachments you'll soon find you can't be without.

Ok
What's strange to me is it has an H120 loader but has a permanently attached bucket....:dunno:
I thought the D120 was the non JDQA loader.
