 790 Pricing/ Recomendations

Is $12,650 (dealer ad in local paper) a decent pricee for a 790 with 4wd, loader, power steering, and turf tires. Has anyone out there put a backhoe on one of these units and how does it perform. One last question - What is the "scuffing" problem everyone is refering to regarding the 4x00 series of tractors. Thank you in advance.

If that's a brand new one, it's a heck of a deal. The 4wd 790 lists for $11,000 and they really won't discount off of that price because it's a promotional price already (at least that's my experience). Adding the loader for $1650 is a steal because it normally costs you $600+ just to have the valves installed. And turf tires (if those are what you want) are an upcharge over the normal Ag tires, too. The 790's can be used with a backhoe made by Deere (you can find them on the Deere website for the specs, I'll put the URL below). I think they list for a little more than $6,000, but I'm not sure on that one.

I have a new 790 and it has worked really well for me in the first 3 weeks of ownership.

Irv, do a search on this board using the keyword "scuff"; you'll have alot of reading in front of you!

 790 Pricing/ Recomendations

Just a quick answer/update to the scuffing. I was interested in a 4600 but tried it out first on their grass. I have a 4100 and thought maybe people were exagerating but it was incredible how it tore the lawn up. The dealer talked to john deere and they were hesitant about putting a new axle on unless I absolutely demanded it and it would be at least 6 weeks (and who knows what that would be in John Deere time). I will probably get a Kubota instead.

Droz - Go back to your dealer -- I am getting a NEW tractor (4400)from Deere, with the dealer's input, sso I know JD will stand behind the problem. As far as the 790 goes, I don't think the scuffing applies. I THINK it's just the 4000 series, and that was with last year's axle.

I may have said this before, but the lower 4000 series has apparently had the axles replaced already but the 4600 has not. They are still working on it. My dealer sells both John Deere and Kubotas so they are not biased unless they make more money on one or the other.

My dealer has a 4600 hydro with the new MFWD axle. He just got it in. No comparison in the way the tractor turns. Scuffing is gone.

Would you confirm the price 12,650. for new JD 790 with front end loader. If this is correct, please post the dealer name / phone or send me a private e-mail. I am interested in the same tractor, but getting prices in the range of 14,600. Thanks, John.

I picked up a new 790,4wd,wloader, R4s,ballest box, brush hog - and a new hat for 15K. Unless you are doing all lawn work go for the R4s. They are hard to find but the dealer let me use the turf until he located a 4set. No scuffing - I've had Ford and IH and I love my 790.
