Last weekend's entertainment

Got a chance to unwind doing some field work this weekend.  Normally I'd use the 1466, but I am still waiting on parts to arrive, so the 806 got put into service with the 6000 Consertill.  I was pulling it in 3rd low direct most of the time.  The 806 was able to pull 4th low TA, but it was a pretty heavy load in certain spots.

Yeah, it was rolling coal pretty good in the low spots.  Even though I have the TA available, the D361 lugs so well that I never really need it.  The radials really make a huge difference, especially on dry ground.  My dad had the 966 on the 6000 the previous day and even though he had more overall power and more weight with the cab on the tractor, he was spinning and slipping a lot more than the 806 was.

I took some video of it pulling, but I have no idea how I would post it up here...

Love your 806!  They are great old machines.  The patina on yours is very similar to mine!

Wow, if both our 806's were in the back 40, it would be almost impossible to tell which is which!  Great looking tractors by the way!  Your 806 looks a bit later than mine with the flat top fenders, the long tubular hydraulic levers, and no heat shields on the manifold.  Although it can't be just too late if it still has a generator. 

That 856 gas is a rare bird; every one I've ever seen in person was diesel powered.  We used to have a 656 Hydro with a gas engine and one of the neighbors still has a 706 with a gas engine as his big tractor.  As far as I know, those were the largest gas engine tractors in our area.
