Specifications- 700 TEN Series Tractors: 7610, 7710, 7810

(These numbers are for the 7x10 series, I am assuming numbers for the 7x00 series are almost identical.

Photo of leversDeluxe 19-speed Power Shift transmission gives you all the right speeds in all the right places. Speeds as slow as 83 feet per minute for creeper work. There are 8 speeds in the field range, from about 3 to 8 mph, while transport speeds go as high as 24 mph. Power Shift is simple to operate. You can move through all forward and reverse gears without clutching.

8400

    We just lost this tractor, but it was cool. All the controles were mounted on the right armrest, and needed only minimal flicks of the fingers to operate. ARM controls.jpg (5826 bytes)

4960

    Older tractor than the 8400, but almost the same traction, size and power. However it is a 16 speed powershift, rather than the kewl ARM controls of the 8400. Havent found any pix yet.

8770

    The big toy, over 450 HP 12 cylinder diesel. Has a hood bigger than a fullsized pickup truck.

big toy aprox.jpg (39366 bytes) This pic is acutally a 9k series tractor, but is the same size and style as the 8770, JD doesnt have any pix of the older tractor on their page =-( big toy tire.jpg (6081 bytes)

20' disk

    We use the 8770 for pulling a 20' wide disk. the 20' is actually comprised of 2 10" disks that are attached together, but can be seprated and used individually. The spacing between

the actual plates that comprise the tilling portion of the disk is greater than that of the 15' disk, giving it much deeper penetration into the ground (and drag).

15' disk

    We used the 8400, and now the 4960 to tow this disk for the first pass of disking, to cover up the sludge. It is 5' skinnier, and gets much less penetration than the 20' disk, so we can tow it with the smaller tractor.
