Thinking of Buying a JD990MFWD. To handle the worh load at my property. Mostly been using a JD X485 and want to Get a CUT to handle the loader and backhoe work. My question is on the Coller shift transmission. Do you have to bring the tractor to a complete stop to change gears. Or is the collar shift like a manual transmission on a automobil basicly shift on the go.

Collar shift-stop to shift.
Syncronized transmission-shift on the go.

Unless you definitly want to keep more engines running why not invest in a BX22 Kubota. They are about the same size as your X series and they will take all the attachments of the bigger cuts and you only need to keep one tractor in your garage(if your neighbors aren't trying to use it).

Since sergeant is considering the 990 he is probably looking for a tractor that has more power. The BX22 with 22 gross and 16.7 pto hp isn't even close power-wise to the 990 which has 40.4 gross and 35 pto hp.

If you are concentrating on backhoe and loader work for this tractor, there is a sizable jump in capability between the 790 and 990. Going from a #7 to a #8B backhoe and 419 or 70 loader to a 430 loader. Check and compare the specs. on these attachments and see what will satisfy your requirements. The 790 may be what you are looking for and just get things done in smaller bites. The 990 was my 3rd choice with the 4410 #1 & 4310 #2. The 990 is definitely much more tractor but you pay an additional $4,200. It also does not come with a folding ROPS to my knowledge, so consider the height issue and the 990 is about a 1/3 larger than the 790 (or so at least I thought). Both are great tractors. Just need to compare and figure what makes sense for you. I would strongly suggest that you demo both of these tractors first as well as others of different colors before you buy to put you mind informatively at ease. Good luck with your purchase.

Ken, thru the years I've seen to many people buy to big and then which they hadn't. Many people do buy to big thinking of ease and then can't get to where they need it or can't use it for the work they intended or it never gets run enough and actually do more harm then if they had put twice the hours on. I see what he is asking for but I don't see a real need for the size he is asking for with the property size he has or he will be putting a lot of money out for something he will only be able to use occasionally.

Art, your perspective certainly adds value.

sergeants's profile indicates he has a half dozen small tractors already. Perhaps he's a landscaper or wants to be in the service business or maybe his small machines don't meet his needs. There's not enough info here to know and absent that knowledge I assumed he knew what he was looking for.

My current property is 51/2 acres for which the X485 w/loader is just fine for. I just bought 15 acres. Hopefully Building a house there next year and I have been looking a JD CUT's. I have been looking at Both the 4000 series large frame tractors as well as the 790 and 990. For the price diffrence between the 990 and the 4000 series large frames. I belive the 990 can fit my needs yes the e-hydro would be nice But the price of the 990 is alot better sounding figure.

My 4100 had a collar shift. It was set up so that you could shift between 3rd and 4th, and low and high, without coming to a complete stop.

I don't know why but a lot of people buy the JD 790 and 990 with a loader and hoe. But it seems they never really like them. A collar shift trans is not your best friend when it comes to loader work. I used to run a 1050 with the same set up. It was a pain, when loading up the topdresser all day at the golf course. Spend a little more and get a 4510-4710 with a hydro trans. It will save you later on in time and agravation.
