Some guys I knew back in the day pulled 4-16s with a 6030 and 5-15s with a 7520 in the Mississippi bottom west of here, and didn't set any speed records.

That was in gumbo.  Sandy ground was just the opposite.  The Mississippi bottom here is huge and has a lot of variety.

I didn't get a pic of mine today but here are a couple adds and a pic of  a 706 in TX.  

There were alot of 706 round here. Almost all diesel. Mostly wide front and 3pt.  The D310 was liked alot more than the D282.  Dad and I always wanted a 756 but I ended up with an 826 demo my neighbor bought new instead.

I think the 706 was alot more tractor than the 560 it replaced.

Thx-Ace

Ran a guy’s German Diesel 706 wide front end, flat top fenders back when I was in high school. Helping him baling hay. He had me roading hay wagons back and forth from the field to the barn with it. It was fun. Liked it better than a gasser 656 that my boss had at the time that I worked for. My boss I worked for then eventually traded his gas gear drive 656 for a 666 Diesel Hydro. Much better. Lol.

My uncle has a pair of german 706's with big rubber. Those d310 krauts really swing above their weight. He used to pull a 720 5x16 with autoresets with it. Runs it on the discbine and pulls his new holland 295 spreader with them.

Here's an interesting shot, (I think) of the Uncle's 706. I rebuilt an engine for one of my WD 45's in the basement in town, used the Oliver crane to get said engine in the truck for the ride to the farm. Probably could have centered the subject in the picture a little better.

Here is a 706 wheatland LP that belongs to a good friend of mine. Love this tractor!  The narrow front 706 with the clamshell fenders belonged to his grandfather. 

The 706 282 diesel with the ice cream box cab belongs to a neighbor that I grew up with.

The 706 310 german belongs to Farmall Tom.

This is a 706 I operate sometimes.  It belongs to one of my baling customers who inherited it from his father-in-law.  I use it to pull my wheel rake when I bale hay on this farm as it is quite far away from my place.  Between the rake size and configuration, the terrain, and the alfalfa hay, this tractor gets the guts pulled out of it when it is on the rake.  Good thing the TA is in good working order.  The late father-in-law who owned this tractor was an interesting character who liked to tinker with his equipment.  There are some interesting and useful customizations on his tractors.  In addition to this 706, he owned an H, a 460, and a 5288, all of which my baling customer inherited.  Said customer also owns another 706, that one a diesel, most likely a 282.  I raked with that tractor also and prefer it to this gasser by a wide margin.

My dad owned a 706 from sometime in the 70s to I think 1986.  The two best days in that tractor’s tenure with my dad were the day it came, and the day it went down the road.  It was a gasser, and being the big tractor on the farm it got worked to its limits.  Plowing, disking, and a chopper.  As such, the engine longevity was awful.  I was told that at one point it only ran 700 hours between overhauls.  Constant valve problems.  When it got traded for a skidsteer, the sales guy jumped on the 706, started it up, then jerked the throttle open . . . and popped the dipstick out from all the blow by.

I think that one with the 3208 was in Iowa also. Or was that an 806? I think that I have a picture of it on my computer.

Here’s pics of ours that we had originally. My Great grandfather bought this one brand new but unfortunately he passed before he could ever drive it. It was our big tractor when we bought it it was quite an upgrade from an M. Later on dad put bigger front tires on it to go through the Lowground easier. I like the looks of those a lot better than the little pizza cutters that were on it originally.

This is a 1967 706 with the 310, 3pt, dual,outlets, 16.9,38 rears and originally isn’t had the skinny front tires but now it has 10.00-16 fronts.  My grandad bought this at a neighbors retirement auction in 1969.  It never was the big tractor as we had a 806 and 1256.  It pulled a 8 row 400 for many years and eventually got traded for a used 1466.  15 years ago or so dad bought it back on a retirement auction.  Tractor has had 4 owners and we are 2 of them!  It is a very straight original tractor.

Here is some pics of my 706 I got for free from my fil’s neighbor. It had been sitting for  probably about ten years or maybe more, nobody can remember when it was parked. It was their big tractor when they first got it, then when they got a bigger tractor they put a f25 farmhand loader on it and a rear entry cab and used it for a lot of years that way. When I got it I took the cab and loader off, changed fluids and put new batteries in and got it running. Ran it for a while and found it used more oil than it used fuel so I did major overhaul on it, kinda wish I would have put a b series Cummins in it now but she purrs like a cat in a creamery now. It isn’t pretty but a pretty paint job don’t make them run better.

I keep forgetting to take a pic of my old 706 so here are some more images of the 706 brochure. I stole the

images from a brochure  for sale on ebay.
