Hello all. I wanted to get your opinions on a potential JD 790 purchase. My neighbor passed away and his wife is selling his tractor. The tractor is a 2003 790 with 300 FEL, 60 inch mower deck, rear blade, and I believe man basket add on. The tractor has approximately 750 hours and appears to be 4 wd... there is a shifter on the front left (when seated) that appears to have symbols indicating such. I have about 6 acres that I now with a ferris 2100z but have a long gravel lane that needs heading and plowed in the winter. I also have other landscaping and land management tasks I will use it for. My neighbor left instructions to ask the bundle for 12k. Thoughts? Thanks for the help!

If this is the same fellow that posted on GreenTractorTalk, he ended up buying the tractor. Now we need pictures!

Nice to see you back; that's one clean machine, and having that JDQA is a blessing when swapping out attachments for the loader.

I'm very happy with it so far. I actually just picked it up yesterday...and issues getting schedules to align. Already finding a bunch of uses for it. Pallet forks have been a nice addition.

Congrats. Nice looking 790. Having pallet forks is like having an extra pair of hands. Welcome to the family...
