 Need more info on JD 790

I will be buying my first tractor very soon and I'm leaning toward the JD790 4WD because of the size, HP, and price. I have a few questions, any help would be great.Can it handle a 5ft bush hog(med duty)?How much weight will I need to add to the front?Bar tread or industrial tires?How hard would it be and do you recommend changing the exhaust to horizontal?Most of my mowing will be light weeds and small brush until the bahiagrass on my wood lot grows in. I have 30 acres of woods but only will mow about 10 acres in and around trees. When I say mow, I mean to keep the tall stuff down, not like a lawn. I also need to do some light grading of my "two track" road and a Forestry road(soft sand). And I will be putting in 3 or 4 small (1/4 acre each) food plots for deer.Can the 790 handle the task?Thanks in advance,Scott T.

to scott t from another scott t in tennessee.....i just purchased a JD790....love it.....use a 65 inch box blade behind it.......also use a 5 foot woods dixie cutter bush hog......no problem......and a very old woods RM59 finish mower.....no problem. I did have to go back to dealer and buy some weights for front end since I have some steep hills.......I put 5 40 lb weights on it and sometimes it seems to need more.......will probably have my tires filled with calcium cloride soon. email me if you need more questions answered about the 790.....and dont get these people here started about what is better.....hydrostatic or sliging gear.....Smile

 Need more info on JD 790

Scott and Scott,
I'm also considering a JD790. I'm planning to use it to run a 6' finish mower, a 5' bush hog, and a 6' grader blade, plus more things in the future. I'm curious what price your dealer is giving you. I was quoted the following prices (in southern Indiana): (DSCV is dual selective control valve)
JD790, 2WD, ag tires, no PS, no DSCV, no live PTO: $9495
JD790, 2WD, ag tires, PS, no DSCV, live PTO: $10,800
JD790, 4WD, ag tires, PS, no DSCV, live PTO: $10,995
JD790, 4WD, turf tires, PS, no DSCV, live PTO: $11,155
JD790, 4WD, turf tires, PS, DSCV, live PTO: $11,735
I'm leaning heavily toward the 4WD with turf tires since I can always get chains ($120 plus shipping from www.tirechains.com) if I need more traction.

I bought a 4WD 790 about a year ago. It has the dscv, turfs and 4 bumper weights (160 pounds) and I paid 11,600 here in VA. I use it with an old Ford 5 ft. brush hog and a 6 ft. Bush Hog brand finish mower. Both of these mowers are heavy (>600 pounds) and the tractor has never had any problems. I use 4 40 pound weights on the front and probably should get one more. It will pop the nose in the air if I let off the clutch too fast with the mower up, but I have no problems with turning. I really enjoy this tractor, it has been trouble free and done everything I have needed it to do. I would buy one again if I needed too.
Mark

Danny,
That sounds about right. Every dealer here has quoted me 10995 for the 4wd,no DSCV,ag tires. The 4wd has the live PTO and pwr steering included. I'm having a hard time finding one without DSCV.

Scott, I just wanted to let you know I'm having the same problem you are, I don't need the DSCV and my dealer doesn't have one without it either and couldn't find one at any dealers in Indiana. He said he could order one from the factory, but that could take up to 75 days! Good luck, Danny.

I am also considering a JD 790. I understand the 4wd comes with the DSCV standard. My concern is the 3 point hitch will only lift 815 lbs. at 24 inch behind link pins. Is this enough for a medium duty bush hog / Bush Hog 285 (5 foot) or other equipment. Thanks, John

I forgot to ask in my last reply. Does anyone have experence with the JD #7 back hoe on the JD 790? How well does it dig? Is the transmission suitable for use with the #70 loader?
