 790 finally arriving

After a good month and a half wait my JD 790 is finally going to be delivered tomorrow AM. I can't wait. I had been so frustrated I was trying to put it out of my mind but now I am really looking foward to getting some work done!

I congratulated you on the other board, but I'll congratulate you again here! I had to wait a little over 4 weeks for my 4310 and the wait was almost unbearable so I know what you went through. The 790 looks like a great machine and if it wasn't for my wife who wanted the HST I would have gone that route.

"The 790 looks like a great machine and if it wasn't for my wife who wanted the HST I would have gone that route"

My wife was just the opposite she wanted the more boxy "traditional" look of the 790. I stressed that it was stright gears but she said she didn't care. I thought for sure she was going to want HST. Women, I can never figure them out Smile

I don't think logical creatures can ever figure out illogical creatures Smile Funny thing is, my wife only wants to drive vehicles that have sticks. All the levers and knobs on the tractor had her freaked out, and she doesn't have much patience for learning new things so she wanted it as simple as possible.

In all honesty she will probably never want to use it other than to drive it when it arrives. The horses really are her thing so I have taken the deck of my 17hp lawn tractor and attached the dump cart behind it. She is going to fil it with the manure/shavings and drive it to the pile and dump it every day or so. Then every week or so I'll turn/neaten/spread it so it's manageable. No sense using the new tractor when it's a perfect job for the now retired Murray. She can also use it for gardening. I just rewired the entire thing with out all the blasted safeties that KEPT BREAKING. It will never have a mower or other attachment so the triple redundant safteies are not needed anymore. They must have gone out 3 times in the last 2 years.

In all honesty I abused ( pasture mowing, pulled bushes even moved a stalled car) the Murray and it ran pretty well, just looks like it has been in a war Smile.

Looked at it.... I darn near memorized it. Smile

Hey Chief, you're the one who got me to look at the 790 in the first place. I'll give you my first status report by tomorrow evening. Smile I'll post some photos as soon as possible. I took some "before" photos of my property this afternoon.

Do I have to go to bed now or else Santa won't come?

I looked and looked and could not find Deere owners manuals online. Can you guys give me some direction on where to look?
