Default My new 1026R

As promised, my son jumped in the seat before faster than you could say "ho do you do".
I did have a couple hours to get used to the FEL before he stopped by after work though. I hadn't messed with a bucket since working on my dad's construction crew (a Case loader/backhoe) but it is like riding a bike and the controls on the 1026 were smooth and the tractor is comfortable and surprisingly quiet for a diesel. We attached the brush cutter (Frontier RC2048) and tomorrow we're going to tackle the pretty rugged north 2 acres. I cut one 2-acre tract with the X310 and with the power steering and wider cut it was a dream! (More photos later).

Very nice. You will definitely enjoy those machines. You've started a nice little herd.

The x310 is what I originally was looking at before I started researching an x530, then a x720, then a x748, and finally "settled" for an 1026R (I could only get one)
