 Deere 990 versus Deere 3720

I'm open to hear suggestions. I've got 13 acres of moderate hills used to graze horses. I'll be mainly rolling them in the spring, rotary cutting as needed, spreading lime, misc front loading, etc. Question 1: Any thoughts as to how much power I need? Question 2: After talking with the Deere dealer, I'm torn btwn the 990 at 40 hsp and the 3720 at 44 hsp. Is there really that big of difference? Right now I'm using an old Long 63 hsp and its too big for the "small" jobs around the barn - front loading, maneuvering, etc. I'd like to down size, but, like question 1, how small can I go?

I'm thinking as long as you have 25 or so pto hp you'll be fine. If you're keeping the Long you can go even smaller. Unless you're moving large bales - are you?

 Deere 990 versus Deere 3720

Sorry i didn't respond last night. Got about 8 inches of snow here in western Pa and had to take care of the driveway/road. Anyway, thanks for responding! I'll either trade in or sell outright the Long. Its in good shape, but too cumbersome for what I need. I'm not moving anything large either, sawdust, manure, etc, and we don't use the large bales. My only concerns are having enough power for the hills and if there really isn't that big of a difference btwn the 990 and 3720, I may get the 990 to save a few bucks. Do you have any experience with either of these?

No experience with either. We've got big hills here and my 32hp JD 4310 will pull a 3500 lb. chipper up the hills and rotary cut the hillside without a problem. Does the 990 have dry brakes? It's little brother 790 does. That would be the only downside I would know of, and it's not a big deal. The 990 would be simpler and probably more reliable (bells and whistles add more stuff to break, wires and connections that can go bad, etc). I like the bells and whistles but there's a lot to be said for simple reliability.

Thanks for the input. I am leaning toward the tried and true 990 and if your 4310 does the same chores I need done, I think I'm looking in the right direction. The only thing I like about the 3720 over the 990 is the mid PTO. Doubt if I will ever use a snow thrower or mid mount mower on it so I'm thinking the 990 would be ok. The whole hydrostatic thing doesn't impress me as I like the gears anyway.

The 990 is an EXCELLENT bullet proof design tractor. No bells or whistles, just damn good SHTF tractor. It is built by Yanmar for John Deere as is the 790. Both a nice simple design straight forward gearshift tractors. I think you will be very satisfied with it unless you looking for the bells and whistles like eHydro and all the other electronic stuff. It is nice when it works but a pain in the rear when it goes on the blink.

Thanks for the reply. Do you agree with the other poster that I'm good with about 40 hsp for what I need?

When you say "rolling" do you mean round baling? Depending upon the round baler, you may need more than 40 hp. Aside from that. I would say 40 hp should do fine. I take care of a very large acreage with my 35 hp 4410.

We don't use the big rolls of hay. We stay with the regular 20 lb bales. Since I have a full time job, they are easier for my wife - who operates the stable business - to deal with. I grew up with an old Farmall 340, which I think was 35 hsp, but everything was flat. Now with the hills and pulling the roller, rotary cutter, etc, I don't want it pushing me down the hill or having trouble going up.

Also, I want to thank both responders for their helpful input. First time I used a discussion forum like this and I am very pleased with your thoughts and suggestions.

I believe the 990 is built by Yanmar which has always built bullet proof tractors! Great tractor
