John Deere 1026 R Posted by Stephen Cavin on 04/10/2012

I just recently purchased along with pallet forks, loader and 60" mower. Everything seems to work well except my only disappointment so far is the lifting ability of the pallet forks--- very weak.

The mower cuts smoothly and is fairly quiet for its size. I like the quick change features between the bucket & forks. I haven't used it yet but it has a drive over easy hook up on the mid-mount mower deck.

Still learning operational features, plenty of safety overrides etc. Shopped several dealers but still seemed pricy @ almost 18K for whole package.
