 JD 790 Lift Capacit: a limit i can live with?

i've seen a lot of posts on this topic & i think at least 1 person that decided not to get a 790 because the lift capacity was too low. This model of JD was one of the ones I was seriously looking at buying. I'm still trying to figure out if the low lift capacity will unnecessarily limit me in my use of the tractor. Even though I've operated a small tractor for years it came equipped a certain way & that's the way it still is. Now that i'm looking into a new tractor i've got to make decisions on implements too. I'll need a 5' cutter and a 5' box blade. the cutter will be used on 10 acres of wooded pasture that has some type of weed that grows to 3' & higher and has a stringy stalk when alive. Late in the yr when these die they turn brown & get more brittle (easier to cut), but i can't always wait for this to happen because once the winter rains come i won't be able to get back into the pasture until spring when they dry out again. For this reason I was looking at getting a medium cutter which may push the limit of the 790. Also, i don't want to limit myself later on if i decide to add other attachments. I'd be interested to hear of anyones experience with these tractors, especially if they've found themselves limited in any way because of the lift capacity.

thanx for your help

 JD 790 Lift Capacit: a limit i can live with?

I have use a 790 to build my complete acrage. I have never felt the fel to be underpowerd. sometime's when i burrie it into 1/4down lime stome gravel it stuggles but that is heavey. I have a 70 series loader and have found the bucket that it came with a bit small. put it this way, I could not fit anything that was to heavy for the loader to lift into the bucket anyway. If you are useing pallet fork's that might be a different storey.
I feel that i wouldn't want to lift any more weight than the 70 fel can lift with the 790 size of tractor anyway.
If I could do it again however I think I would have spent the money and bought a 990 John Deere. I sometime's could have used the size weight and power. But 99% of the time the 790 is perfect.
