Well...after purchasing my 790 2 weeks ago....I have to say I am very happy with it so far.....ordered with 4WD..70 loader, PTO front and back...JD 60 inch mid mount mower... I have installed 2 extra work lights in the pre drilled holes on the rear fenders..lights things up real good back there now...oh yes also came with turf tires....which I am absolutely amazed on how this machine just marches thru 2 feet of snow......unreal....no rear ballast as yet either....put it into 4 WD..loader down...1 st gear low....had to use the diff. lock a few times..but this leads me to my question of how much extra traction I will obtain by throwing 3 or 400 pounds back there??? and one more qustion for anyone out there.......why is the bucket that comes with the 70 loader...painted black and not John Deere green..???? enquiring minds want to know.????hmm

Glen;
I purchased a 3 point mounted "ballast box"(BB) for my 4WD-HST4200 and have used the front end loader with and without the BB. My experience has been that the BB not only enhances traction, but also lends a bit of stability for those times when using the loader, especially when dumping the bucket while on a crossways slope.
I estimate my filled BB @~400 pounds as loaded with rocks and log chains,

Bart

Heres a picture of what I rigged up for a ballast box, that will also come in handy on other projects.

I would suggest whenever doing loader work having some sort of rear ballast,

Good Luck.
