Kinda like apples and oranges. I knew that 1365 felt big when I got on it,was concerned that it would be real unhandy in tight feedlots. It doesn't turn near as short and steers harder with the bucket full when I'm trying to turn around in a tight spot. All that said,the bucket is bigger,so I don't have to turn around as often,so it's still faster to load with than the 1020 was. It's geared alright in the forward gears,8 speeds forward,but it only has 2 reverse,one super slow,one awful fast where the Deere had 8 forward and 4 reverse. Just have to do a little more shifting. It's easier now that I've gotten used to it and can load a little faster. I run it in high range more now and use first gear high and high reverse. I'm amazed at how well it starts in cold weather. The manifold heater does a good job. It's been right down around zero a few mornings and it started right up.

As far as the 1020,hard to find too much fault with something that lasted that long. I got it out the other day and moved it. It felt like a toy compared to the size of the 1365. Of course if you've ever had a 2 wheel drive truck and compared it to a 4 wheel drive,you know there's no comparison. So in that aspect,the 1365 wins hands down going away.
