Well I went and did it today

I ordered a 1025R Tractor Loader Backhoe
Independent Hydraulic Lift for Mowing deck
60inch 7 Iron auto connect
42inch Frontier Tiller
Led Forward Light Kit
Rear work light kit
Front quick Hitch with Hydraulic angle
R4's filled with rim Guard & 72Lb Cast Iron wheel weights

I really Have to Thank Tractor time with Tim https://www.youtube.com/user/timmarks416/featured His research into the 1025R TLB & royrector research as well is what finally made My decision on the 1025R over the redesigned 2000 series.
Another reason I went with the 1025R so I could use attachments I already have for the X748 On the 1025R

I am still keeping the X748 with 45 Loader and all it's attachments. Because it's still handy for tighter spots

I should Have the 1025R In the next few weeks
So My signature will change with another Deere added

Well there really selling like Hot cakes for My dealer. They have a 17 1025RTLB at the sister dealership There Hoping to have sent to them to start Putting into My configuration I saw it today But couldn't Take Pictures Because I was driving by and it caught my eye at the stop light. and I had Just been there to see about a used 30inch tiller for My GX335 Which My dealer had seen On there Inventory. Which they could not find. Well Got some Project to do for the 1025's Backhoe already. Running electric from House to a turn of the Century Evanston, IL Street Lamp In the front Yard and Running 100 Amp service to the Barn which Only has 30 Amp service currently. Found out thru My Neighbor that Old Owner didn't run Gas to Barn as His Realtor said It did. So Going for electric Heat for the Barn. I just Hope it snows next Winter here so I can Put the 1025 thru it's Pace's. Hope to Have a Curtis Cab for it By winter Because Deere came out with a OEM Cab for the 1025R But it not Backhoe Compatible like the Curtis Cab

Re: Well I went and did it today

I think the 1025R is a great value, especially with all of the incentives Deere is offering. I was thinking about how prices have really fallen for older 318s, 4X5, X5 and X7 machines this weekend. There was a 250 hour X748 for sale on Craigslist for $7500 obo for the past month. I was thinking about it, but then I asked myself, "Why would I spend $7500 for a used machine when I could get a new 1025R with loader and deck for $5-6 more?'

My reason was the Backhoe. I always Meant to get a Wallensten Backhoe for the X485 & just never got around to it. Myself I think when the X739's get Low enough in price Used I may get one In say 7 or 8 years. Just for mowing . But Knowing Myself I'll probably still get a 3point & a Rear PTO for it.
