The title of your post needs to be changed to say Custom abortion 1086. I wouldn’t want to run it even with a bag over my head.

I was NOT  surprised it was a Southern Belle a single bit.  IH's under hood muffler wasn't the best idea, holding all that heat under the hood doesn't do anything under there any good.  I've seen a couple side exhausts that run out under the hood on the right, down and back to the cab corner, then up, that have been very nicely done.  I've never seen a low exhaust outlet that didn't at one time or another blast the operator with exhaust fumes. Diesel tractors need upward pointed exhausts, get the noise, heat, and gasses up away from the operator.  It works on 95+% of semi-tractors and other BIG trucks.

Man you guys are judgemental.

It's a special purpose tractor, used to charge through low-hanging branches and thick brush. The vertical stack didn't last the first week. Low exhaust is much more practical. Bet they never had to fix it once after they put that on.

I don't see anything there that can't be undone. Plus it doesn't have a TA. How much could possibly be wrong with it?

Sounds good. Runs. Drives. Brakes work. That's a $7500 tractor at any auction around here.

She is ugly!

Look at the faded Tate County sticker.  It looks like she has been a county tractor most, if not all, of her life. I've never seen a side exhaust like that is why I posted it. I'm sure the LEDs are safety strobes.

There are alot of brushog tractors round here setup like that. However the exhaust is normally not cut out the side. I've seen many new tractors modified similarly and put on a hog. The 3pt gets caught up in brush and causes problems if you're using a pull type hog so they get taken off.

It's worth around $2500 here, maybe less.

My 1486 4 post was a brushog and hay feeding tractor for years before I bought it. Mine didn't have the modifications so it is more beat up.

Remember since she went to the county, an employer has driven and repaired her. 

Thx-Ace

Side exhaust was common for many years in the south around gins. Saw a lot of M's and 806's used around gin yard to move cotton trailers. Side exhaust was used to keep sparks from jumping up into the cotton trailer.
