 1990 1070 JD

My husband and I are going to look at a 1990 JD 1070. It has a front end loader (not sure what kind), power steering, 32hp, diesel, mid & rear pto, locking differential and new bar tires on the rear. It also has a 3 speed gear box and 1800 hours on the engine. The engine just had routine maintenance completed on it. The person is asking $5500. Is this a good price if everything works well and looks good?

He also has a 6 foot mid belly mower he is willing to work into the deal. What would that be worth?

Thanks

Yes, that does sound like a good deal, especially if it is 4wd.
Dont be fooled by "routine maintenance" unless the seller is your mom.
If it is only 2wd you might be dissappointed with performance depending
on what you would like to do with it.

A dealer would want at least $9000 for same tractor.

don't go more than $500 on mmm if it is apparently used.

Signs of abuse on this tractor are bent footsteps, dinged front driveshaft
guard,sloppy loader attachment points, bent-up bucket, and bent rims....my
tractor has all of these Smile

Well, it is a 2WD. We will be using it primarily for mowing and moving manure & hay around. Might do a little land clearing if it works out.

We are going to look at it on Friday. We will look for the signs you mentioned.

Thanks for the help. We'll let you know if we get it.

Yes, that is a good price. Too bad it isn't a 4wd, but that would really be asking too much at that price. The 1070 is a large enough compact that it will be able to do good work in 2wd. With a little weight and some chains for really sloppy conditions it should be just about unstoppable. I hope it runs out well, you aren't likely to find many that are priced so fairly. As for condition....unlike cars, tractors don't seem to fail all of a sudden. Like most industrial machines they just wear constantly over time. However it runs and works when you try it is very much like it can be expected to run for a long time.

The tractor probably has enough capacity, but you might want to ensure that it can manage what-ever sized hay bales you use. The reason the previous owner of my 24-hp tractor traded it was that it couldn't handle the bales he was getting. I don't imagine with a tractor that size that the 3ph would have a problem (although I wonder how much some the huge bales I see going past here on flat-bed transports weigh). I believe that some people like to handle bales with spears on a loader. I think some of the larger bales may give loaders on that sized tractor problems.

We went and saw it and it appears to be in really good shape. There is only minor rust and that is only topical. The front end loader is a model 80. All the hydrolics seemed to work fine as well as both PTO's. We could not see anything leaking when they were in use. The gentlemen hooked up a box grader to the 3 point hitch so we could see that work. It was very smooth. You can see the new hoses he just had replaced also. There is no real body damage to speak of. I think the hood had a little crack in it and the bucket had a slight indentation along the edge. My husband drove it around some and played with the loader. He is very pleased. The gentlemen will be delivering it in about 10 days.

Does anyone know where we can get an operating manual.Laughing out loud

Thanks for the help

Tom, we only get square bails of hay. The storage works easier for us and we only get about 20 a month. We only have 6 goats to feed it to. : ) This should work fine for that. As far as the ground goes it is pretty solid. We are on a high sand hill. Doesn't usually get to sloppy. We are fortunate there.

Congratulations! You know you can get the manuals from JD. You ought to have them before the tractor arrives. Surprised it doesn't come with one. Another source is Ebay - where manuals come up for sale fairly often. In the meanwhile, I can answer questions by referring to my own 1070 manual.

Me too--congrats. Sounds like a pretty good find. I remember square bales pretty well. My cousin used to complain bitterly that his brother made the bales too large and then expected us to fling them up five or six courses high on top his low-boy trailer. But anyway, you could fling those bales around with hay hooks, unlike the oversized bales seen today. I also remember old round bales and walking behind the baler tying the bales as they came off. I forget what we complained about then--hot and miserable probably.

I hear goats don't eat much, but they are picky. Six bales a month (alfalfa I guess) won't challenge the tractor much. The question maybe will never come up, but I'll mention that when I got my Ford 1710, I discovered that the loader float circuit was on the bucket rather than the lift. I thought somebody just got it backwards, but later I found that loaders used in haying are sometimes setup that way. I think the idea is that using bale spears on a loader to stack the bales has a problem of releasing the spears. There’s a tendency to drag a bale back off the stack unless the bucket angle is just right. A floated bucket tends to release the spears easier. Guess the square bales also make a good place for the goats to stand on.
