The Deere has a taller hood and it makes it look bigger than a BX. I think you sit higher on the the Deere too.
Looks like more seat time is coming. I think of the auto connect deck like a TV remote. Sure you can get up and stand there and change the channels, but why? When you can sit on your *** and do it!:😄
I remember the first TV remotes. It took a while before they perfected the concept. Are you an "early adopter" in your buying habits? Whatever you choose, enjoy!
I like the concept of quick change attachments. In another thread I mentioned the new Deere mower deck and was told that it had problems. A non perfected gizmo can be a pain. But don''t take my word for it check it out.
I expect you will be happy with either tractor.
This year I picked up a used BX2200 with 900hrs on it. Mostly I have been moving dirt around. I have come to really appreciate the BX's low center of gravity.
I plan to add a quick attach, thinking a tach-n-go system, for the loader so I can easily switch between forks and the bucket. I also like the idea of the front mounted receiver hitch. You new tractor will have similar standard.
I have a 2013 1025r TLB with 54 inch mower and a rotor tiller. The tractor is wonderful and has done everything I have asked of it and then some. I ha dug hard red clay and rock with the loader . I have even doug up a telephone pole with the loader and backhoe. I have cleared about 3 acres of heavy brush and small trees will no problems. the back hoe and loader mount and dismount easily. I would suggest a couple of extenton hoses for the backhoe to enable monovering to hook up the backhoe. The mower hooks up quickly if everything is set up like JD says. I would suggest that if you take delivery go over all adjustments . Unfortantly the dealers don`t take the time or have the trained personel that know how to make the adjustment and set the equipment correctly. The 1025r is the hardest working tractor for its size I have ever seen.
I deal with Nova in Aylesford. Great guys. Talk to Leroy.
I have upgraded three times since 2001 from a B7500 to a B7800 to a GL3540 and each time I have been very happy with the results.
