One Review of the “John Deere 790”

  1. Mike Ring says:

    The person who reviewed the tractor said that you have to stop the tractor to shift gears. Stopping the tractor is not necessary if you know how to double-clutch. That’s something I learned to do 65 years ago on my father’s farm.

    Year of Manufacture: 2000
    Pros: Great tractor! I have 3273 hours on it and have had no problems other than replacing the seals on the front wheels a couple of times. We used it every day when we had our farm. I kept the tractor when we moved into town. We use it around the yard for landscaping duties. My tractor is not for sale!!
