    Used the same, the 1026R will. Model year newer with a lot more features.

    The Green one.....

    Tough question to answer. If both are comparably equipped, the 1026r. (FEL, MMM, etc....)

    It's not about the color, but what you like in a Tractor that counts!

    The 2305 will have a better resale percentage. Figure the 2305 is not current anymore and already lost the steep initial depreciation. The 1026R is likely new and you'll take the initial depreciation. If you have to own and operate it the R is nicer!
