 JD 650 is a workhorse and cheap on fuel

Some years ago I purchased a used (150 hrs) JD 650 4wd, along with a auger, brushhog, loader, tiler for about 8,600.00. It turned out to be the best thing if did, Last year I put in 300 ft of road through a swamp, moving 150 yards of oversize gravel for the road bead. this little tractor was the best. My neighbor who owns a JD 850 wanted to trade me because the 650 could go where the 850 could not. So for all of you that are looking for a good little workhorse the JD 650 is it. And at the current price for diesel these days, it is very cheap to operate.Matt

Matt, I like my JD 755 for the same reason, it is very compact. Sometimes a bigger tractor would be better, but I tried a big old Ford and it just couldn't fit anywhere.

Matt: I've got the Model 670, which is the next generation with a three-cylinder engine. I certainly agree with everything you said and I'd like to point out that the tractor is built like a tank. Many of the components (things like the drawbar, lugbolts, etc.) are the same as those used in the larger tractors such as the Model 790; in other words, the tractor is overengineered. The Model 4100 series has many fine features and is a joy to use but it isn't as heavily constructed as the Model 670. Someone might point out that the Model 4100 is as durable as it needs to be and this is probably true. However, speaking as a proud and happy owner of a Model 670, it's fun to own and use something that does it's work well and isn't a cause for concern. I have faith that my John Deere will outlast me and will probably be a source of happiness for a number of satisfied owners.

Do you have the power steering kit installed on the 650?
