JD 1026R Posted by Mel on 09/13/2012

I guess the final decision to buy the JD was the foldable ROPS as the Kubota BX2660 did not have one available. I wish I would have reconsidered as the mower has never hooked up like they demonstrated at the dealership. Way too much plastic and the hood is very flimsy. Also, the engine mounts stick outside the frame which looks funky.

The neighbor likes his Kubota and wish I would have looked a little harder before the green purchase. Could use more foot room on the platform.
