Congratulations on the new tractor Harold!! I agree with Brian it is a step above most Gts. Yet not so big it cannot be used in a suburban setting. I have looked at them myself and they are less costly than a 700 series with the options that are standard features on the 1026R. Wise choice in my opinion!

Thanks everybody!  "Howard Hughes":D  The real Howard could buy a tractor like that or build an 8 engined airplane and STILL have some cash left over!:D

 

And speaking of the "BH operator's station and seat".  I was of the belief that the dealer forgot to include the BH manual with all the other manuals delivered in the bag.  I called today and they would set one aside when they find it.  I simply could NOT see how to turn the seat around to BH position.  I tried every thing (and every cuss word) to get it to rotate...  Everything except that funny little latch and lifting the seat to turn it.  I got clued in that the manual was in a black plastic tube well hidden against the shiny black operating deck paint.  I took back some of the cuss words which had "John Deere" in them.:D

 

I certainly will get some pics, today was cloudy and just too hectic running around for a plastic fuel can and then "fixing it" so it would pour, but I did try out the loader on the compost pile and adjusted the bucket level indicator.  It Is slick!!!

Need an easy to use fuel can?

You won't have a Rural King close by as they are mostly in OH, IN, IL, Southern MI, and Western KY, but they DO ship.

 

Awesome place and SO much better than TSC that they shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath  :D :D :D

I ordered 3 of those in yellow 2 weeks ago in anticipation of the tractor delivery.  A day before I was to fill 'em I found out about the "No Diesel In Galvanized Cans" recommendations.  I just ordered 2 NoSpill 5gal. jugs yesterday and I'm going to try and send the other's back to Rural King.  They had the best price on JustRite's and their service was quick and free on the shipping.  I'll keep them in mind for sure as I do a lot of mail order stuff.
