I think a lot will depend on your ground/turf type and ground speed.  I use R1s and for the most part as long as I keep it under 4 mph on the turns and don't turn super sharp I don't see much damage.

You do know the 1025 is RIO equipped, correct?

Reverse Implement Option.

You have to hold a switch when you reverse with the mid pto engaged, otherwise it dies. I do believe JD is the only manufacturer that puts that safety feature on a SCUT.

Oh. I'll probably bypass that for sure. I believe the 1023 is that way also.
I've already done the deal now. I went ahead and got the 1025. I had planned all along on getting 1023 after eliminating the x758. The more I thought.. If I spend this much$ on a lawn mower, I don't want to regret when I needed a few more hp, exact depth on 3pt or when my butt got sore. I was able to upgrade for $1300. .. A lot more money but doable over 60 months @0%.

Thanks. Well it's almost here. Supposed to be delivered in the morning instead of today. It's all put together now with a full tank of diesel. I'll wash and wax that baby when it gets here. Don't have to mow till end of next week. I'll be doing some work with the loaderImageUploadedByTapatalk1438379218.879614.jpg

Have taken the loader off and on, but not the deck yet. Got to do some loaded work using a rear dirt scoop and boulder for ballast
