I have that tractor's bigger brother.. An 870, 29hp Yanmar 3cyl. fully syncro stick [including reverse] 3spd with 3 range so 9 forward speed.
mine has a Husky [made in Canada] quick-detach front loader with quick detach bucket system..
72" mower deck with center PTO.
Catagory 1 3pt hitch. 540rpm rear PTO.
It's a 4x4, and thats very useful when using the loader,, the rear wheels tend to come up off the ground at times.. :D

The yanmar diesels are very good, and diesels in general if fed clean air, clean fuel, and good oil will last just about forever.

The Hydro trans is something I know nothing about.. I'm sure that if you aren't snow blowing the entire neighborhood it won't ever
be an issue.

Good find and a good buy!!

What a beast Greg! Nice. 8-)

Now, I've got a question for you tractor gurus: I've driven a '56 Ferguson TO-35 -- very similar to Ford 8N in every way. Now, can you shift gears on this thing on the fly or what? Didn't seem possible when I was moving. Was wondering if you had to double clutch it like a TT unit, or just come to a complete stop and start off in the gear you need? :gee: Doesn't sound like they'd design it that way, or you'd be burning clutches up left and right starting off in 4th with a load on ...

Generally speaking.... you have your answer! My Old 1946 Alice Chalmers didn't like to shift while moving.... you could do it, but it took a good ear.

Greg, sweet sounding machine.... but if you ever need 2100 RPM PTO come see me.... my little 655 does both. ;)

So there's a trick to it. That's all I needed to know - I WILL learn this trick. :D

My "It takes a good ear" goes something like this: A GOOD ear can tell if the gears are clashing on the front side of the gear (engine too fast) or the back side of the gear (engine too slow). When the engine RPM is jussssst right, she'll slide right in. Heeheeeee! That being said.... I didn't say that I had a good ear, I just said it takes one LOL I think I pulled it off once.... 99.9% of the time I just started out in whatever gear I needed for the job.

As for my PTO..... It has two, a forward one for lawn mower & snow blower & a rear one for rototiller & such. The front one is 2,100, the rear is 540.

I'm missing pages 21 & 22 from my owners manual! It's not torn out, I have an extra page 27, 28. It goes 19, 20, 27, 28, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29..... I know the one thing I'm missing is telling me that the left foot heel stomp is the differential lock. At last I hope that's what it is. Oh, and how do I turn on the heater?

Thanks! Big trucks towing big trailers use big gas. It cost about $50 in fuel alone to go get it. Ohhh well. My little 2,900 lb trailer wouldn't do it. It'll only carry 2,200 lbs.

After a quick cleaning and some bolt on accessories Freddy has got her running like a pro!


Not to be out done SMITTY decided to fix up his old John Deere lawn mower and keep it around a few more seasons.
