I'm looking mostly at used Kubotas & JDs for hogging, hauling, & loader work on 13 acres of pasture. One under consideration is a 1990 955, 4wd, 33/30 pto hp, 1187 hrs., pwr steering, hydrostatic, with a loader & ag tires, for $15,000. The dealer said JD's goal with this model was a small, maneuverable powerhouse. I've seen 4100's & they look like lawn tractors on steroids, size-wise, so I'm hoping this rig has more size & weight going for it. If we're here for awhile, I might be tempted to attempt excavating a pond, though I understand that that may be a project for a pro with more appropriate equipment. Any wisdom about this model, and, of course, the price for a grateful novice?

Keith; The JD 55 series are a great compact tractor. You will love it, although I think the dealer is asking about $.5 to $1K to much for it. Year does not mean as much as hours. The engine, if in very good condition has about 2/3rds of its life left, IMHO. I have a 1990 JD 755 which I bought this past July. It only had 313 hrs on it, a #52 loader and a 60" belly mower and I paid $12,550.I thought that was a good deal. A 755 is only 20 engine hp. and not the hp of the 955 but the hrs are almost 4X as much so I think that would bring the price down a bit. I am not an expert so you should talk with others on this and other forums. hope this helps,David

I looked at the 955 tractor last year. For your info, a new 955 with loaderwould only run about 2000 - 2500 more than the one you are looking at used. I believehe is pretty high on his price. I bought an 870 instead because I wanted the additional weight and capacities that it offered over the 955. The 955 felt more like a garden tractor to me, therefore the reason i went with the 870. I really do not have a problem with the shifting of the 870. The area I mow is fairly wide open and I do not do a lot of loader work. Hope this helps.

Dear Gary and David: Your replies are tremendously helpful. Two things are remarkable: that this communication technology has made this kind of exchange possible; and that people would take the time to help each other out in this way. I am very grateful. Sincerely, Keith

Personaly,I think 15k is kind of high for that many hours.The size of the 955 is rather small and there is no way you would dig a pond unless its the size of a small car.A 70 series or an older 50 series would be better with any amount of hogging.I believe there are a lot better choices to consider.I just went from a 850 to a JD4500 for mostly the size difference.Better to overbuy than underbuy and be glad you did down the road.
