Thought I'd post a couple HydroDeere family photos.  The '04 GX still really looks good and it's just as ready to work as new.  The 1026r is an "experience" or better yet  "A Happening".  Fun "re-learning" the BH after all these years...

What's the horse power on the 1026 ?. I could sure have fun with the  BH, always wanted one of them but just never seemed to be in the right place at the right time when one came up reasonable.

What's the horse power on the 1026 ?...

 

Hi. The (new) model number tells you a lot about the size, configuration and power of the tractor. 1=size, R=configuration, 026=horse power

 

 

Edit: Congrats Harold, real great tractors!!!! 1026 :driving_big_tractor: 

Or, as Deere declares: 1026. The one. The only.

The boys look great Harold. Now you will be digging holes and burying rocks just for the fun of it.

It digs pretty good for such a tiny lil' thing!  I was surprised how quick the feel came back, I guess it's like riding a bike. (I hope it won't break as many ribs as biking did!):D  I'm still fooling around trying to get the mower deck adjusted (dealer is going to have to do that here) and learning how to assemble a 3pt hitch.  I hitched a lot of stuff in my life from semi's to Gravely split balls, but I never laid hands on a 3pt.  The pictures in the manual were so washed out I went to the dealer and snapped some with my phone.  Of course the phone crapped out and I got no pics but I did see 'zactly how it all goes together.

 

I am certainly not going to shy away from planting stuff like bulbs, plants and flowers with the hoe.  My ground is so full of clay that if I want anything to grow right the soil has to be amended fairly deep (well, maybe not 5'+:D).  I've got electric to bury, drainage to do, concrete walks to remove and I have to find and dig up my well cap.  PO said the well was "here", so I'll start waaay over there and see if I can find it in a couple weeks or so of digging.:D
