Got my 1026r with belly mower, FEL, and rear blade delivered by the same person that sold it to me. It was delayed due to high demand and factory overload so waited two weeks longer than promised delivery date.
My salesman took off over 100 dollars off price for delay.---without me asking. When delivered, salesman spent over an hour training me on how to attach/reattach all items.
All went smooth except mower---rear spring loaded locking required some jiggling of the mower deck. I got all of the easy attach stuff including the drive over deck. I have attached and unattached all of the add-ons with great success.
I have filled the FEL with patio blocks to the brim and hauled to back of rolling property without ballast box and with our problem. I have mowed down super tough tomato plants from drought season without any discernible dip in RPMs from the 25 hp Yanmar. In fact, | have done several things to test this motor and it performs way beyond expectations.
Everything Deere made for this SCUT was as if they were doing it for a much bigger tractor. For those of you interested in fuel economy, I remember someone saying they had 40 hours on their tractor before filling (5.5 gal). I think they might have been mistaken as I had just short of 10 hours, which is still awesome in my book (I had a JD 40 before which guzzled gas).
All in all, on my 5.5 acre Shang-Ri-La, I am extremely pleased with my tractor, its attachments, and my dealership.
