 Buying a 790 419 Frontier BB

Well, I looked at the Chinese crated tractors and the Korean and Japanese, but finally stopped by my local JD dealer and was offered a deal I just couldn't turn down. He's got a low hours 790 coming in on a "year end tax sale" from a commercial farmer that is going to buy new stuff in January. A 2002 790 with 445 hours, and a new 419, delivered for $11,700. (more separately)

 Buying a 790 419 Frontier BB

I appreciate a lot of the info here. I've only been reviewing these postings for a few days, but already I've learned a lot. Found myself reading till 2am two nights in a row! I am sure I will have several more questions. I haven't bought the membership yet (probably will, but want to hang out awhile first), so short replies are appreciated.

I am a tiny bit concerned that the 790 will be a bit weak in the lift capacity department, but until I have the problem, I don't know if that's realistic or not. This is the first tractor I've owned. I've borrowed and rented, and spent time on my uncle's farm as a kid forty years ago. The first tractor I operated was a hard working JD Model B on a large Nebraska Corn, hogs, and feeder cattle farm.

I've seen the discussion of increasing the hydraulic pressure on the 790, and may end up doing that if necessary, but thought I would run the thing awhile first and see how it goes. This 790 will be the earlier 30 HP engine version that gives 25 PTO HP. I would have preferred the 990 with a 430 FEL, but that's just not in the budget for now and I am not really sure I need it.

Ultimately, I figured that if the 790 turns out to be not enough tractor, I can always trade up later when I can afford it. As I mentioned in an earlier posting, I've got 6 acres on a hilltop in Oregon. An 800 or 1000 feet of gravel driveway that would wear out a boer goat! As I said earlier, people with 2WD pickups don't visit me without walking up the hill. With the rain here, and delivery trucks digging holes with spinning tires. I need a BB badly.

The dealer has Frontier BoxBlades in 48" and 72", but is all out of 60" or 65". He'll sell me a 72" and trade straight across any time later for a 60" or 65" if I decide the 72" is too much for me. The 72" would make quicker work of the job if I can pull it, but might be too much load, full of gravel and dirt, going up-hill. Planning to swap the R1s for R4s.

The dealer wanted to put calcium in the tires for me, but I am about decided to use wheel weights instead. Can I get as much weight in wheel weights as I would have gotten with watter/calcium? I like the notion that I can take wheel weights off and make less footprint on soft ground for jobs that don't need the traction.

I also have a couple horse stalls and pasture. Planning to use the BB as a poor man's manure spreader for the back pasture. Ultimately I want to get a rotary tiller, the dealer has a Kuhn 60" for 1620, at 529 lbs (very soft topsoil, not worried about the power required). And then I also want to get a brush chipper. Not planning a BH at this time, the property is pretty much "built." I don't see much need for largescale digging.

As I've said, I believe I will be happy with the power of the 790, and I may do the Hydraulic Pressure upgrade, but has anyone looked at the possibility of replacing the hydraulic pump with a larger one, perhaps the one from the 990? Would that improve the 790's lift capacity?

Also as another in another thread here, wondering if a larger alternator could be used on the 790, perhaps the one from the 990?
