I bought a 12 row 85 series cultivator. I have a 856 and a 1486, it shows it going on a 66 series and 06 series tractors. Does anyone know if it will go on and 86 series? What would it be like cultivating with a cab? Any other comments or tips would be most appreciated! Thank you for any tips!!!

We had them on a 1086 and only took the steps off, not the doors. The door was a big help getting into the cab with the cultivators folded for transport. That first step was a big one getting in, even bigger getting out if you forgot they weren't there. Don't ask me how I know.

We might of modified the frame brackets to make them work on the 10, not absolutely sure on that. Would have been in the early 80's I think.

Taking the doors off was probably a visability thing.
