I have a 750, 4x4 with power steering, JD 67 loader, and the JD 7 backhoe. For the size and the HP (about 20) it's a great little tractor. For brush hogging, snow removal, loader operations, back blading, and just hauling around a mower or wagon, I think its's great. For actual plowing, tillage, disking, etc....I think this tractor is just not meant for those things. For example, I wouldn't dream of taking my 750 over newly plowed ground with a disk....it's just to narrow and tippy.
500 hours is nice and low. If it comes with the 3 pt. hitch, ROPs, all lights work, I still think $5K is a little high. If it has a front PTO....maybe. I just saw one on Ebay like this with a beautiful front JD mount snowblower that topped out at $3,600. I paid $9,500 for my rig...but again...it had a loader, backhoe, and brand new rims and tires all around.
- easy to work on
- parts readily available...although original JD parts are pricey
- narrow, and thus a little tippy. I would not recommend it for hilly property.
Just my 2 cents....hope it helps.
