    for Cristmas 2011 found used Joh Deere 670 w/ 40 hrs and options

    Default New John Deere Owner

    Hello
    My brother convinced me I needed a tractor for my 4.5 acre rock pile. My back when I moved the fire wood in for Christmas confirmed the matter.

    I found a JD670 with 40 hours that had been covered and or barned most of it's life with FEL, PH auger, and rake. They delivered just before christmas and I have been creating a mess since then getting used to the tools. Almost took out the gate I was trying to improve the clearance on. Found out that the football size rocks are as much a problem for the PH auger as for me by hand.

    Had to make a contraption to hang the auger on before I could get it off the 3 pt as I sure did not want to take it appart again. Had fun making a contraption to Hang a 200# roll of fencing wire from the FEL . Treated it like a paper towel roller with some chain and a piece of pipe. I rolled out 150 feet without a pinched finger or stained back. Now I know why I needed a tractor.

    I look foward to finding some good ideas here. Will share some pictures when I figure out how.

    Best wishes

    Welcome to TBN!!!

    A 670 with 40 hours!!!!! 40 hours??

    My first tractor was a 670. Great little machine!!
    They put out about 20 Engine HP and 17 PTO HP which will be a good fit for your 4.5 acres (it was for my 2.5 acres).
    I ran a 60" rear finishing mower (a BEFCO that was sold with the tractor) and 60" Land Pride rotary cutter. The mower did fine...the cutter bogged the tractor down a bit, now and then.

    BTW, the 670 begat the 790 and current 3005...so there's still a lot of 670 heritage.

    A John Deere 670 with 40 hours is a rare find - will be watching for the pictures. A couple of years ago I bought a 4wd kubota B8200 with 42 hours. It was like stepping through a time warp - old and new at the same time. Welcome to TBN!

    Thank you for the warm welcome. Yea I did not want to pay buy new and the few used units I found were realy used hard. The prior owner of the 670 was a machinist and he and his son both bought 670s. The son had 400 hours and the dad had 40. I could not pass it up. Now everyone thinks I am an Oregon Ducks fan.

    I have atached pix of the tractor and the stand for haniging the post hole digger. Note still working on modification for a tripod to make the 3PT easier to hook up on the auger.
