    Default New to me, jd990

    Delivered to my camp in Vt last Feb. There are 2 JD dealers up here that would not take my MF165 on trade. I found a 2004 990 with 960 hrs. on it down here in central Ma. and they said no problem. That old mf started right up afer sitting for 2 yrs. and drove right onto trailer.-38200019-jpg-51990003-jpg

    Hopefully the Johnny doesn't have to sit outside like the MF and the Ford.

    Sad to say yes it does. I plan to build some sort of structure this summer for equipment and implements.

    Nice JD 990 (aka Yanmar tractor). Those CUTS were built to last. If you have troubles getting parts, there are plenty of Yanmar parts suppliers for both the imports and the gray imports around the country.

    That JD 990 has the famous Yanmar 4TNE84 engine. Treat that machine with plenty of love, and it will serve you well for decades.
