"I have had this tractor since it was new (15 years). It has a 419 loader and I use it with a 6-foot finish mower with no problems. I have not had front wheel issues like described in other reviews but do not use 4-wheel drive much. I have found the loader to handle any load I could fit into the bucket."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Cranks first time every time, have only had to replace he battery and change oil, oil filter, and air filter; excellent fuel consumption (low) Cons: With front-end loader the battery is a little difficult to change Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: USA NC I also considered buying:

Front Ring Gear Issues At The Wheel

"I have a 790 that has 400 hours on it. I bought it in 2012 new. Last year the left front wheel sheared the drive gear at the wheel and the left wheel actually fell off as it broke the retainer clip also. I was back-blading sand and it made no sense. I assumed it was a manufacturer defect until I read this. Just two days ago hauling drain rock the right wheel started clicking. I tore it apart to find three teeth sheered off the gear. The gears can not handle the load of having weight in the bucket while in 4-wheel drive."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Great for small projects Cons: Under engineered front end, also bucket sags while operating Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: USA WA I also considered buying:

"This tractor has done everything I have ask of it and more! I use it mainly for wildlife food plots, bush hogging, and clearing log roads. I have the John Deere I Match quick hitch on it and it handles all the implements with no problem. The tractor feels like a 50 horsepower to me as I upgraded from a 23 horsepower machine! I considered a couple other brands in this horse power range but the 790 just felt more comfortable to me and just felt stronger. I'm very happy with its performance!"

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Powerful enough to get the job done Cons: None Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: USA GA I also considered buying: Kubota L3000, Massey Ferguson 1533

"This utility tractor is the greatest little tractor. I have 10 acres that I keep mowed and also use it for everything around the place. I had some forks built to attach to the bucket. I use it to lift (like a forklift), use it to move dirt around for the wife in her flower beds, etc. I also have a small garden. I use it with a brush hog to mow 10 acres, and have even hired it out to mow friends' pastures. It runs very smoothly and is very economical on diesel. I can mow for 5 to 6 hours on 3 to 4 gallons with this super little machine."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Small and narrow for tight places, good on fuel, very good for me Cons: No backhoe Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: USA NM I also considered buying:

Model year: 2005 Date Purchased: 2007-09-15 Number of Hours:

"I've replaced the left front ring, pinion, bearings and seals. Now I have to do the same to the right front. Don't, and I repeat do not, use the front drive with a load in the bucket on a steady basis on hills. The front drive on the wheels is under-engineered. One small tooth takes the load. It needs a beefier setup. Aside from this problem, mine is very reliable. "

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Short wheelbase, reliable other than frontend Cons: Small ,weak front wheel drive gears Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: USA WA I also considered buying:

"I purchased my 790 new from the original owner in 2010. It has proven to be totally reliable and up to the task of maintaining my less than ten acre small farm. It is a no frills machine but the no frills is a plus for a small farm. I added MMM this year and the 60" MMM is perfect for the 5+ acres I finish mow. The gear drive is a plus and it is totally reliable on a machine that only sees five hours or less per use in the summer. It was a great purchase for me and I could not be more happy. "

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Reliability Cons: Power for above 60" rough cut mower Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: USA AL I also considered buying:

"I work my tractor very hard. Might have been a little easier if I'd known John Deere wouldn't stand by any warranted. I even paid extra for extended warranted and got back NOTHING! I bought a John Deere because I thought such a big name would stand by its product---it doesn't."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Works as hard as I do. Cons: Tie bars in bad place and rear lifting arms fell apart on me. Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: USA ME I also considered buying:
