Farmall 866 or 886

18 posts in this topic

Dear IHers,

Here is a couple of photograhs of a Saltillo, Mexico built tractor I have seen on the Mexican equivalent of Craiglist.

It appears to have a D-350 engine and is labelled as a "Farmall 866" (front badge) and confusingly "886" ( near operator's station).

Grille looks resembles a German built tractor; chassis is similar to an American Farmall 826.

It is different from an Australian "International 866" standard tractor.

Does anyone have any information on this tractor.?

Regards from Michael H in Australia B)

Quebec Canada also requires license plates on farm tractors & construction equipment.

Apparently IH built the 756 in Mexico after it stopped building them here in the US. So that would be a 310 german engine? Thx-Ace

I'm thinking the rear number (886 in this case) is a number given to this piece of equipment to keep track of it by the company that owns it ;) .

Looks to me like the picture's reversed. Seems to be a D358, but the intake manifold and fuel filters should be on the left side.

I notice that the headlights are in the grille, like a 66 or 86 series,

The photo of the tractor being built at Saltillo is dated 1973

The tractor being advertised at the start of the post is listed as a 1979 ("anos '79"), if my hopeless Spanish is correct

Regards from M.H.

P.S. The assembly line set up at Saltillo looks very basic compared to other factories! :)

I can't read the number plate in the photo.

Most countries require tractors to be registered if they are driven on public roads now.

That is the case in Australia, Britain, Germany etc.

I don't know the requirements in Mexico though! :)

886 Taco special.

What is a TACO special?

Does it mean an American built "export edition" for central American or a Mexican built version of an American model?

Or both?

To add to the confusion IH Mexico built at least two German models, the 624 and the 523, at Saltillo

I bet that tractor has a lot in common with an 826.

I agree.

Looks like an update of the Farmall 826, a sort of interim model before the 886.

Regards from M.H. :)

Interesting to know what transmission type (Hydro or Gear Drive) and what hitch system (3 Point or Fast Hitch) this tractor has! :)
