Nice slab flattening and dado routing features. But where is dust collection?

With all the attachments and implements - I pretty certain there's something to do it.
Of course - Just like our beloved Festools - I'll have to have it -
And it'll cost more of the "GREEN" $$$.

They are great tractors.  I have a 10 year old 2025 that has been great.  Just keep up with the service recommendations. 

If you haven't discovered greentractortalk.com forum, it's worth a look. 

And on Youtube, check out 'Tractor Time with Tim' YouTube channel.  Amazing what he does with a 1025 tractor like that.

I wish I had a cab, don't like plowing snow with an open station tractor nor mowing. Got some wasps PO'd at me last Summer and they caught me on the return run and stung the cr@P out of me about 5 or 6 times.

Only picture I have of my JD. It’s 1000 miles away, circa 1990.

I could tell the story of how my wife started it on fire, but she’s reading this as I type.

Congrats!  I've had one for 7 years and 450 hours.  You will love it and find you're doing things with it you never before imagined.  For example, I've used it to assemble my hefty Powermatic lathe,  pull an old boiler out of the bulkhead of my basement, lift an old 36" tube style tv into the bed of my truck, unload a Snap-on like mechanics tool box off my truck.  Plus all the usual landscaping chores.
No doubt you've found Green Tractor Talk already.  Like FOG, great people and a wealth of shared info.
Enjoy!

Wasn't that the company that's arguing that your tractor isn't your tractor and exploys shady tactics that they can continue to employ digital restriction management in their machines so you as the end user can't even exchange broken parts youself?

IMHO not a smart move to buy anything from them.

It isn't just Deere, they are all that way. Deere has gotten media coverage since they are more vocal about it.

Construction equipment mfgr's are no different either.

Joe


Was back on our farm last week in Arkansas and our tenant there just took delivery on this rig...

100 foot boom on quad tracks.  800 gallon tank.  It will cover a lot of ground in a day's time!

Tracks help significantly for flotation in wet fields.  This year is testing everyone's timeline and patience given all the rain.

As it sits, probably about $360,000...  That's a lot of Festools!
