I recently sold my 3038E. It was more than I needed for 2.5 acres and rarely used. I’m considering purchasing a 1025R to replace my zero turn mower for lawn duty. I’d like to have the bucket to move dirt once in a while and I still have my pallet forks that should fit. Has anyone else done this? I don’t think losing the maneuverability of the zero turn would be terrible. How difficult is the loader to remove from the 1025R? I also have a Craftsman mower with a cyclone rake I would like to replace with some type of bagger/lawn vac for the 1025R. Any suggestions? Consolidating equipment should save some maintenance costs and time. Not to mention the garage space.
