  1. The speed chart is shown in TA speeds then, interesting they didn't show direct. Reverse speeds were shown in direct as no TA in reverse 🙂
  2. Consider a steel building? Give you almost 16 feet in the middle and not have any trusses in the way. I used to get a flyer in the mail all the time for them.
  3. Yes, what rear tire size. Cast front axle and industrial tires would be slow. Surprised it isn't a 8x8 shuttle.
  4. The hole for the TA / shuttle lever is awful worn looking for never having a lever in it. I drove a well used 685 with the shuttle years ago and the lever hole looked something like that. No remnants under the dash?
  5. Is you chart "TA" speeds forward? That is a SLOW road speed otherwise. My 495 speed chart is 16.7 MPH in H4 on 14.9-28s. Reverse speeds look to be direct drive speeds, and should be similar to the corresponding direct forward gear.
  6. The hole is in the dash on all of them, even after the electric switch option, the F/R shuttle also used that hole. There was a plastic cap that filled the hole when the tractor was new and it didn't have the F/R or older lever style TA. I understood all 885s had the 16F/8R trans, at least from the 1987 electric shift era and on. Tractor will pull harrow in High 1st easy.....
  7. I never shut PTO off on small NH baler. Bale needs to be spinning to eject.
  8. I'd trial and error which is faster. Never drove one...but I am guessing "disengaged" is direct drive and engaged is "reduced" Neutral would be same as N on the other sticks?...no power delivered? Make rev match on the unsycd box easier?
  9. I would expect a 10 speed to be shifting all the time. Gears nice and close, keep engine at desired RPM. 3 overdrives so I imagine highway cruising it works 7-10 regularly depending on terrain and load. I have a 6R80 behind a 3.5 ecoboost, 3.73, my 4-5-6 ratios are similar to 7-8-9. I'm rarely out of 6th cruising empty, typically only use 4,5,6 towing.
  10. I read enough issues about removing people who won't pay and trash the place leaving you with no recourse. Combine that with concepts tossed around like "rent control" and "eviction moratorium" I don't know why anyone would be in the rental business.
  11. I'd look at the online parts manuals and see what parts are identical. I run a smaller NH round baler and many parts interchange with the newer versions, but there are differences..
  12. I see near perfect sheet metal (needs paint) , grill, fenders with unbroken lights, decent rubber etc. Intact original seat. Paint, decals and new seat cushions and it would look like new. Might be nonfunctional for something critical...might be the battery is dead. That is a big gamble. Be perfect donor for fixing up one that's been trashed but runs.
  13. Think the poor grammar, accents and other red flags are on purpose. People who won't fall for it hang up quick, they can then move faster onto someone who doesn't hang up.
  14. JimB2 has all kinds of diagrams for this, hopefully he'll post. Return line goes in the fitting at the bottom of the rear end right under the right hand trumpet housing. Feed should be off the power beyond on the end of the remote valve stack. I see you have double remote valve now, that's nice. You will need open center valve.
  15. Mature hay is better than no hay.
  16. Lots of Euro stuff has been imported. I saw a really nice 4210 with the L cab (the basic no AC factory cab we did not get here)
  17. Any tractor I've driven with foot feed will allow to to set MIN RPM with hand throttle, and the foot feed will allow you to go up to MAX RPM and when you let off RPM goes back to the hand throttle set point.
  18. Seems North America was the only place that did not get the IH 85 series / 85XL cab other than the IH 385(no XL cab) as mentioned. I have an op manual that is for 385,484,584,684,784,884,Hydro 84..... Not sure why NA didn't badge 85 series until merger. The solid red H pattern 84 series were the IH 85 series everywhere else. 1987 for XL cab, on Case International tractor in NA.
  19. I set the hand throttle for continuous speed pulling and PTO rpm, but with smaller irregular fields your foot moves enough it isn't tiresome even using foot feed all the time.
  20. This year has been different, early summer heat and frequent rain. Hay yields are fantastic, land soft in places though. Only got a few decent windows to crop. I am so glad I can wrap haylage. Was only able to do dry hay successfully on 1/3 of the cut. Had 4.5" of rain in last 2 weeks. Last summer we went a month with no rain, pastures dried up and had to feed hay in the middle of the summer.
  21. Foot feed as an option must be a USA thing. I mainly use hand throttle for PTO work. Foot feed 100% of the way to go for almost every other job especially load and road work. Hopefully someone knows why that won't work on a 756 or at least what is different. I'd be making it work!
  22. Great series, well worth a watch.
  23. Think they were pretty solid. Based on my experience and that there has been zero work done to the 530 other than bed chain repair, I'm quite happy. There were many IH spreaders sold here, but that style and small size of spreader is pretty well obsolete now. Used prices on good ones are high cause most of the small spreaders are rotted out and long gone so less for the remaining small farms to fight over.
  24. This one has been on the farm since new. Use it every year, then clean it, oil it and shed it after use. Haven't had to use the warranty.
  25. Big bucks for a W-4, looks like it's in good shape. https://machinerysales.cheffins.co.uk/lot-details/index/catalog/1134/lot/502924/McCORMICK-W4-Standard-4cylinder-petrol-TRACTOR-Serial-No-WBH22691WI-Fitted-with-rear-wheel-weights-and-side-pulley-on-13-6-12-26?url=%2Fauctions%2Fcatalog%2Fid%2F1134%2FShrubbs-Farm-Collection-Major-auction-sale-of-over-90-classic-and-vintage-tractors-implements-and-spares-Essex%3Fpage%3D6
