Jeff-C-IL Posted February 15, 2022 Share Posted February 15, 2022 Used a 1486 as primary tillage for years. My only complaints were harder to see out of the back while hitching, and the A/C never worked. No matter how much money we threw at it, it would always fail in a few months again. It made a great 2wd field tractor. Loader, not so much. The little short levers and style of cab made loader use really difficult. May partly have been the WL-44 loader, the posts were right in the way, then the cab posts.... As far as fueling - I'd take the 86 any day, as you had all the nice grab handles and stuff to step up on (hitch, etc). The 66 w/cab, you had to stand on the cab steps and hang on to the door frame & lean way around to get to the fuel filler. I had a few times my feet slipped on the step, and that time the wind blew the cab door shut on my hand is not a pleasant memory. As far as dirt - you learned to open the back window, reach out and push the crap off, then close the window and go fuel up. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
