Hey everyone! Im new to the forum and a new JD owner, well almost. I ordered a 1023e with the 60d mmm and h120 loader. The dealer seems to think its only going to be about a week til they can deliver it. What a long week this is going to be! The tractor is at the dealer now and they are waiting for the loader and mower to come in. Before I pulled the trigger on the 1023, I was also looking at the Kubotas as well. I drove both and I really didnt like the foot controls on the Kubota. Plus, the I liked the fact that the 1023s loader can pick up almost twice as much weight. Anyway, cant wait for this thing to get here.

Welcome Starkey!

We are really glad you made the right decision. We will want lots of pics, we don't have any of the 1023.

I've noticed that many people on this site went with the 1026r. I almost got the 26 insted of the 23, but I think the 23 is more then enough for me. I've got a little less power, which I probably wont notice. Id rather work in the daylight, but if I need more lights I can install some of my own. Cruise control...I dont have that now so I can deal with it. But the seat...I really wanted the seat the comes on the 26. I even asked the dealer if that was an option on the 23, aparently not. I'll live though. This tractor is already much more confortable then the garden tractor I currently use.

Anyway, no word yet on when all my parts will be in. Im getting very anxious. Hopefully I will have my new tractor before thanksgiving.

Waiting for Godot

Hang in there Starky. I have been waiting 1 week & apparently have 10 more days before my tractor arrives. I want my Christmas present NOW! I am sure you feel the same.:empathy3:

Congrats on your 23. I have been waiting for my X748SE since Oct 17. The wait has given me time to add to my order. Tomorrow I will add a 54 Blade to the order and the rear PTO.

Too bad starkeyb!:cry: Will you wait for delivery of the 1023E until then also? I know it isn't much consolation, but good things come to those who wait.:thumbup1gif:

Ok, we are getting close. I feel like I ordered this thing about 6 months ago. The mower and the loader are in. So far they have put fluid in the rear tires but im still waiting for the attachments to be set up. I thought maybe I would have a tractor today, but the dealer is only open 2 more hours...loosing hope. Maybe tomorrow.
