    Welcome to TBN! Good tractor that 990... I think there might be ONE, 990 owner left around here!!!

    I used to have a JD 970 for 3-4 years and have only good things to say about that tractor.

    Looked very seriously at buying a 990 after I sold it.

    But, the fact that my wife wouldn't drive a gear transmission tractor changed that geometry. Nonetheless, there were certainly times that owning a gear tranny tractor was a really good thing...

    Thank you AKfish. Yup, I love mine, but sure wish it was a hydro drive instead.

    Right on! I bought mine new in 2004. Aside from the fact that the hydraulics bleed off and have since new, I really like it! Very impressive machine indeed!

    Does Yanmar make the entire tractor or just the engine?

    I've got a 790 and the whole tractor is Yanmar. Solid piece of equipment.

    I had no idea. I thought that Yanmar provided only the engines for the smaller advantage series tractors.
