John Deere 7610 with 740 loader.
More old pics I decided to upload now that I've got a stable high-speed connection.

As says the title, the tractor is a John Deere 7610 with 740 loader, pulling a goose-neck flat deck. The tractor has a fifth-wheel attachment off a semi on the 3pt hitch. Trailer has a partial-load of silage bales, each weighing in at around the 2,000lb mark.

Hooking up again. This can be done without leaving the cab, as can unhooking (disconnecting.

Re: John Deere 7610 with 740 loader.
Over in England we seldom would use such a large tractor on a loader.

Nice pictures :-)

Take care.

Re: John Deere 7610 with 740 loader.
Thanks all,

JCB, personally the bigger the loader tractor, the better. ;-)
We have a small loader tractor (85-PTO Hp) and it's pretty useless in my opinion. It's great for some things, like in corrals or sheds, easily replaces a skid steer. Upside is the PTO, 3pt hitch, and hydraulic remotes. Downside, is that like a skid steer, it can only handle one round bale at a time, smaller buckets, poor reach and lift height, etc.

I'd like to say I wouldn't buy another loader tractor smaller than say.. a 7530, but we've been talking about possibly getting another tractor about the [physical] size of the TM125, to replace the 7710. Possibly a T6000 or 7030SF. Or maybe, just maybe, a new style Fendt 736?

Perfect size loader tractors for me would be a Deere 7000LF, TV145, TM175-190, TVT195, Fendt 924, or New Holland Genesis series. The Deere 8000, TGs, and MXs are physically just too large for chore tractors.

Victor, yes thank you, I got your email, been meaning to get a reply sent off to you but it's just been crazy around here lately. Between school, farm, girlfriend and salesmen, hard to find time to just sit and get replies off to everyone. You're at the top of my list. ;-)

Not quite GTech, should be here within a few days though, early part of next week at least.

Tom, they are nice tractors, I like most things on them better than the 7020SF series. Good visibility, very good transmission, heavy duty front end, and they turn pretty short too. I didn't put many hours on this one, but I put over 30 hours on a 7410 optioned identically this past summer during silage, and a little more over the years. Biggest downside of that 7610 was the loader, should have been a Quicke 990.

Re: John Deere 7610 with 740 loader.
what's wrong with the JD loader?

i'd like to have one on our 6400, because the stoll is very far away from the front(about 1,5 to 2 meter)

Re: John Deere 7610 with 740 loader.
If you do that for 7000 hours your gearbox is a total loss. our JD dealer (pulincks) had a 7700 with loader and the powerquad and everything around it was broke

Re: John Deere 7610 with 740 loader.
Gerbert, the JD740 is rather light duty, the 740 on the 7410 is twisted, and it only has a small 6-foot bucket and grapple. Changing attachments is a pain, so is parking and re-installing the loader. Visibility is good however, and it responds very fast. Q990 would have had SoftDrive on it as well.

Schizo... I wouldn't know as I haven't been around one with that many hours on it. Actually... I think this 7610 had ~6,000 hours on it when it was traded. Was a very reliable tractor, however it had a spring off the shuttle shift fall down into the transmission, and as soon as the dealer had to split the tractor, a deal was in the works to get it off the farm as a preventative measure.
