 John Deere 750

I am looking into purchasing a used compact tractor. I just found a 1985 JD 750 that seems to be in good shape, has a bucket loader and a york rake with agricultural tires and 4WD. I will be using it mostly for landscaping, hauling rocks, wood, sand and gravel on my 30 acre property. Did JD make an excavator for this model? Also, can I mount a mid mover deck on it or do I have to go with a rear model? In general, is this a good tractor. The asking price is $6,500. Sounds reasonable to me. Any comments or thoughts would be appreciated.

Correction, it's an 88, not an 85 and has 1,300 hours.

As long as your tractor has a mid PTO (for mid mount mower deck) a 60" belly mower will work. They also make a back hoe to fit as well! I would not be afraid of the HRS either. My 2 cents.

I have a 750 I bought new in 1988. It's a 4 wheel drive with ag tires, and I've been VERY pleased.

I use a Woods 650 backhoe with excellent results. I also have a 67 loader, Woods landscape rake, Woods M5 brush hog, Howard tiller, PATU DC-40 chipper and a log splitter. It runs all of them with no problems and no breakdowns.

In 12 years and 1900 hours, I have replaced a battery, and put hardened bushings in the toplink attachment point on the tractor (the backhoe is hard on the toplink, hogs out the holes) Other than routine fluids and filters, I've never put a nickle in it, and it still runs and looks like new.

I think you'll be very happy, and the price seems about right.

Paul. Thanks for your reply. Sounds like you've got a great package for your machine. I could make use of every bit of it! I've got a huge brush pile, a huge pile of wood waiting to be split (my shouldes are aching right now from swinging an axe and maul over the weekend), an ever expanding garden, and a rear access road that's brushed in. Iíve found out a bit more about the machine I was looking at and have decided to keep looking. Itís done a LOT of log hauling, has already blown the front drive and front wheel bearings and needs a glow plug and $500 valve for the loader hydraulics. The motor and transmission seem O.K., but Iíd rather find a machine thatís had an easier life, even if it costs a bit more. Iíve asked the local JD dealer to call me if he takes any 750ís in on trade. Who knows, I may even end up with a new 790, they're on sale!

Whoa, sounds like that one's been rode hard and put away wet!

I have been hearing rumors, REPEAT, rumors, that the newer series machines are not the machines the 50 and 70 series were. I'm so happy with my 750 that it's not an issue for me, so I haven't bothered to investigate on my own. I do know I came within a heartbeat of trading up to a 970 for the extra power, the full synchro transmission and the power steering. In the end, couldn't hack the payment.

I see 750's in the local trader rag 5 or 6 times a year. Where are you? I'm in Maine.

Have you watched the Bargain News. This week they have a 750 4wd don't remember the exact price. Somewher around $9000. It should be within drivable distance for you.
Good Luck

Thanks. Yes, I saw that ad and called the owner. I think the asking price of $9,000 is a bit high. I think it's an 83 or 85 and has something like 1700 hours. I could do without the cab. Also, I'd rather have the ag tires instead of the turf. It's been doing nursery work, which I would guess is mid-duty work. Why would a nursery sell a good tractor is what I keep asking myself!
