Looks like the 2720 just took over the lead position. I was considering the 1026R. I have flat level pasture land, no unused area to "reclaim". Ground clearance and soft wet Washington soil is an issue (7.7" vs. 13"). I want to be able to mound rows in the garden and cultivate between.
Looks like I'll be keeping the riding mower (JD GX245) and let the tractor be a tractor and the mower be a mower. Maybe in a few years I get the MMM and collection system, but I'm concerned at the weight on the lawn, soft soil and ruts. 31HP to mow is a bit overkill, for a 120x75 lawn. Thanks for the info, keep us posted on your machines progress to get work done.
