 JD 790 EQUIPMENT HOOKUP

I have hooked up equipment to tractors in the past. Have an agri background and have hooked up 3-point equipment to the 7 and 8000 series JD tractors, they weren't half the trouble that I am having hooking up 3-point equipment to the 790. Can not back up and hook the arms on one side, attach the center link and then have the other arm fit on like I have done on bigger tractors. Have to spend 30 minutes, break my back and use a pryer bar to get it to finally attach. Is it me, the tractor or something else that I might need to know about.

Thanks

 JD 790 EQUIPMENT HOOKUP

There are turnbuckles on the lift arms to reduce sway of equipment. They may be adjusted tight to greatly reduce the sway; suggest loosening them up which will give you more play to get it over the pins when hooking up.

Some people have more trouble then others. It helps to drop equipment on a hard level surface with the tractor level as well and block it up to the drop-off height. With a minimum amount of wiggle you can attach it. Should only take a few minutes.

 JD 790 EQUIPMENT HOOKUP

I can get my equipment on in just a few minutes. The most difficult piece was the ballast box. It managed to sink to the mud with all the rain we've had.

I have found that when you detach an implement you should select a level, hard surface, and also make certain the implement is straight behind the tractor, not swaying at all. Makes for getting it off much easier.

I hook up both link arms first, and then the top link, pto.

If the implement has sunk hook up the left hand side of the tractor [left, if your sittin on it], first. This arm can't be adjusted other than up and down with the 3ph control.
Once you have the left on connect the right hand arm. This arm has an adjustable vertical link, so if the implement pin is lower than the left side it is easy to adjust and lower. Same goes with the horizontal adjustments.

If you center up to the implement you'll be fine.
If you had to adjust the horizontal sway be sure to raise the implement up slowly and once to the top of is travel push it to the left and right to make sure I doesn't sway too much and clip your tires.

Good Luck!
Brian

You should always hook up the lower pin first. That way you can lift the 3pth up to level the implement. If you're not square to the implement, hook up one pin then move the tractor forward or back to square to the tractor.
