 Does this sound okay?

I'm trying to buy a new JD 790 four wheel drive with 419 FEL, SQ6000 Bush Hog rotary mower, 5' Tuffline box blade, and PTO auger with 9" bit. My dealer has quoted me a price of 15,800 for the whole package. Sounds okay to me but was wondering how it sounds to others on the board. Drove the tractor Saturday and loved it. Will be maintaining 11 acres, 6 in pasture, two in weeds that I want to convert to pasture, rest in hardwoods. Need to do fencing, bush hogging, manure spreading maintain about 1 mile of gravel drive back into my relatively isolated place. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Steve Wells

I'd sure want a hydraulic top-link for using a box scraper to maintain a mile of gravel drive. The top-links themselves aren't too expensive, but the rear valve controlled hydraulic outlet to run them can get pretty pricey. You might get a better price as part of a package than as a later add-on.

You might check if the PTO can take larger auger bits. I think 790's have the HP to run one. I run a 12" auger with 24 pto hp. A 9" auger would be what I'd use for 6" round posts. For 8" posts or 6" x 6" posts (8.5" on the diagonal) there isn't much room in 9" holes. For larger posts, the placement of 9" holes would have be to pretty accurate to keep straight fence lines without having to shave sides in some holes. Holes with plenty of room also are desirable for digging holes for pole buildings.
