I think a 40" inside turning radius on the 2720 is pretty good, I think you made a good choice in tractors by the way.
I care too, the less trimming the better. While I still have a good Stihl string trimmer, Deere JS45 trimmer mower with front casters and Stihl backpack blower the less I need to use these the better I like it.
Ritmatt, have you bought a tractor? I know you have been looking and have gotten some sound advice and I was, for one, curious to know what direction you may have gone here. I would say as a matter of response to one of your prior questions that the X series machines in 4WD handle a loader just fine---I had one. However, the loader itself is slow and has limited lift capacity making the 1023 or 1026 more capable with loader work. I find it interesting to hear that the X series machines are not "as capable" as a sub-compact tractor. They absolutely are, with the exception of hydraulic work (which is pretty important) and use many of the same attachments. Truth is I am a fan of the 1026 and the X series machines.
Thanks for checking in.
Wrooster wow! What a beautiful place! Not really related to the tractor discussion but where, if I may ask, did you get those doors for your out building? I'm about to build one for myself and I really like what you've done. Also you get a gold star for helpful input. It was a pleasure reading it and seeing the included photos.
FWIW I'm about to pull the trigger on a 1026r. The only thing holding me back at the moment are a few suggestions that I go up to a 2 series instead. Your pictures make me think it's not necessary.
Sorry for the hijack.
The doors are custom from Scott Hahn at Hahn's Woodworking in Branchburg NJ. Please note that he makes very high quality carriage and garage doors, and they will easily last 50 years because of unique methods of preparation and sealing. He offers his doors in a lot of different types of woods, from the not-so-expensive to the ultra-expensive. And, you can get the doors finished or unfinished; the latter saves you some money.
The model shown on my workshop is Hahn's SX401 in Rustic Cypress w/ light wirebrush finish.

Incidentally, I have been working on our carriage house/garage for the last year and am in the process of replacing the dilapidated 1930's-era rear door on it with a single door from Hahn's of the same design as the pair on the workshop. I'm almost ready to put the jamb into place and hang the door, see below.
Very nice. And thanks for the information!
Wrooster, that door is gorgeous! I love it!
