Well I'm confused, I have a new 1025r and am interested in getting a cutter for my tractor. I have seen prices at the lowest of below 800 bucks that being the Nortrac sold by Northern Tools to a little over 1000 bucks for other brands. I have no idea what the Deere model goes for because they dont advertise prices. I assume for my tractor a 48" is about the biggest and I think it would suit my needs just fine. Anybody here have any experience with brands other than Deere like king kutter or Nortrac? Thanks in advance for any and all responses.
