I'd sure go with the 986. I've had both of those. Day and nights difference in power like a H and a M. 886 was a complete dog compared to the stock 986 i had.

We bought a Rops 986. Since then we added weights bale with it and pull tobacco wagons in the fall. If you get the shifters set up right, you won't go wrong, 436 engine is non turbo bullet proof.

Can I drop my 986 off for that treatment?  :) Sure is a good looking tractor!

I tried to buy it cause we farm the original owners land and i wanted one of his tractors but the current owner wants to much told me he was gonna get it running then i will see its worth that much!

Neighbor has an 886 (D360) been wearing a turbo for well over 25 years. They pulled a Hesston chopper with it for long time, how pull a NH 900 with 3 rows and a KP. Not very fast but you don't need fast if a lot is coming out the spout. Tractor is also used for general farm work to include feed mill manure spreader an etc.

Ya ours had the roof metal rotted in the middle and of course the edges. Bunch of metal work.  Another thing was IH started using the plastic fuel tank with the 86 series. We had to replace it had a big crack in it. Guy in Indy had a NOS tank from a dealer sale. Lucky for us, can't get them from CIH anymore. Mike from Triple R got us dashboard pieces, exaust pipe and a bunch of other parts. Tractor has 4500 hours.

My 886 also has a turbo, it will keep up with a stock 1086 most days.

My turbo'd 766 would pretty much keep up with Dad's stock 4440.

We plowed sod together one night.  I pulled a 5 - 16 Ford high clearance plow and Dad had a 6 - 16 IH 510 plow behind his 4440.  I lapped him every few rounds, so I figured we were doing roughly equal work.

Ya those 360 engines really have great power, especially with a turbo, they burn less fuel than a 986 with the 436 also.

I’ll go against the grain and say 360. I have a 986 and a 766 with d360. That 7 is a gutsy booger. The 986 does ok but after i jump out of my 1086 it’s a bit of a buzz kill. I think my 766 is way more fuel efficient. I feel my 766 turned up a bit will run right with 986. Just my .02

Just slap a turbo on the 436 in a 986.

I don't think they will ban you on the forum but your forehead will get sore from banging it on the wall.Wait until your need some parts for it that have to come from the dealer and if you do all your own mechanic work your in for a treat.I run a shop in what was once a Oliver/White heavy area now the dealer is gone .I'd rather work on 5 red ones than one of those .Good luck , and as I always say there is no such thing as a bargain on a White or Oliver

I'll agree with that.We used to have a number of Oliver /White Guys in the area. The local dealers went away and no anything you have to get from them you have to drive a ways to get it. Plus you will find dealing with AGCO will make dealing with Deere look like a walk in the park price wise. I'm working on a Oliver 1655 right now for a buddy and it's been a slow process. 

We had 2 neighbors that were White guys. One place they traded them off for Deeres and the other traded them off except for one on a pair of Magnums.

I think the IH' s are better tractors overall.This one has a 354 dot 4 perkins which is a pretty good engine.I have had good luck with perkins engines in the past.I'll agree IH' s are easy to work on and parts are plentiful but always wanted a later model White.I like the 6 speed trans and the over/under is pretty darn handy.This White is a 1982 model 2-88 about 90 hp also cab comfort and visibility is really good.I've owned several Ford's and Deeres as well.I think they all have their strong and weak points.I too am a mechanic by trade I farm on the side and I service and repair Hyster lift trucks to support my farming habit.
