Going on three good years with this little gem, and I've finished most of the big projects. A smaller machine would now be much more useful for loader work in tight areas (all those new plantings are growing!) and clearing snow from paths where even a SCUT is too big to maneuver. There aren't a lot of options for a diesel machine that will take a snowblower and loader under four feet wide. I'm planning to look at Bobcat S70 skid loader or MT-52 mini-track, though both may be out of price range in new or clean used condition. Haven't seen a mini-skid with a narrow blower, though there must be something available.

Question is, what's my 1026R worth these days, with the 1025R around? 2011 version with original-style loader stand, 49" loader, ballast box, 47" snowblower; under 80 hours, always garaged. Not a lot of them for sale around here on Craig's List or the heavy-equipment sites, especially set up like this w/o mower.

Any suggestions welcome - if I make this switch, ought to do it before winter. Thanks!

Just looking at what else is out there up for sale, I'd guess you'd be looking between at somewhere just north of $16K as described for a retail price.

The trade in value should be around $11-13K. You are better off listing it on C-List or someplace similar. I'd probably ask $15K, especially if it is in real nice condition.

I believe the value of my 2010 (bought in december) 2520 with backhoe is valued around 16-18000. The one series is a popular tractor though...so you may get close to 16000. I hope you do.:thumbup1gif:

Bought my 1026R last year on Craigslist for 11500$. I watched the listing for 3 months before buying it. It came with a loader, 54" mower and ballast box. Machine had less than 100 hours on it. Hope this helps.

In my area, that would be described as "An exceptional deal"......Congrats....

I might be interested if you want to sell off the implements separately. I could use a snow blower.
Thanks, Mohican. Seems to be a lot of interest in the blower - they are kind of pricey. But it's the main reason I have the tractor now, so would prefer to keep the package together. Feel free to PM, though, and if someone buys just the tractor/loader, I'll be in touch.

Hope everyone's ready for winter - last two nights have left frost, a harsh reminder when the days are still warm!

I just bought a 2012 1026r with FEL and backhoe, 76 hrs, mint condition. $14,500.
I noticed a listing in Tractor House recently for a tractor which matches your purchase and it was in your general area. Wonder if it was the same unit? Thats a real good deal. Congrats!

I actually bought this one out of Western Virginia. Trucked it up here. Its a great little machine for what I needed it for. Couldn't be happier.
