I miss the 1086 because of nostalgia I guess but wouldn't want to give up the Magnum either. I needed one for a little research project I am working on. We had installed a side shift kit from Abilene Machine on the 4 speed reverse tractor, as it was being used with a front-end loader. Neighbor has a 7110 running at 220 or 215 and they use it as their main tillage tractor. The 1086 was very good to us as a primary tillage tractor that was used hard. Did I mention the powershift?

Chads Hey boog- I am at Tuscola or just north. This is an unreserved online only internet auction event. When plowing the 7210 will do more work but will use more fuel and it is lots more confertable to operate. Where are you at by Danville? I'm just wondering if the extra expense would be worth it. I ended up buying a 1044 and am in the process of cutting it down.
After owning a Magnum you'll wonder why you ever owned an 86 series tractor. To sell equipment on our next auction, call a sales representative today, 1-800-937-3558. I would like to get there too some day. Please be aware of BigIron's and. Guy on another board commented that his 7230 was the nicest tractor to drive since the 4020, and that probably about sums it up. It worked so well that we decided to try and install the kit on the 2 speed reverse.
I was interested in the 833 cornhead Aaron had on his combine. We traded a 79 model 1086 B engine for an 8920 mfd demonstrator about six years ago. Tons more literally 3 pt lift if that is an issue. Everything is Sold 'As Is, Where Is. I have been told that the 89 series magnums do burn more fuel because of some emissions changes in the engines. Neg to 7000's Possibilty of more electrical problems, we've replaced several, sender,sensors, and the dash in ours. Comments, advice, personal experiences would be appreciated.
Each bid during the extension period extends the auction by 5 minutes. Almost rented with the option to buy a 7120 from the dealer last spring when the pto input shaft went on my 1086. It went for a whole lot more than I was going to give for it. Hard to understand why less emissions takes more fuel! The 966 is the cheapest tractor to run we've ever owned, maybe with the possible exception of the 5140, but I'd say it's close. Maybe it isn't fair to compare mfd to non, but we have been very happy with the magnum.
We can operate a hydraulic motor with the priority valve and still use all the other remotes and 3 point at the same time. Yes, I would think it would be worth it. Let us know how it turns out. It worked equally as well on the 2 speed as it did on the 4 speed. You would have a door that opens like it should have, a goood set of steps, transmission levers up out of the way and no longer grinding, and more power. One was equipped with a 4 speed reverse and the other only had a 2 speed. Just watched a 3000 hr.
I think the bad rap a lot of folks gave the 86 series was because of not keeping things in adjustment and not understanding how the transmission brake works. Great brakes Good engine, probably nip and tuck here And that powershift, oh yeah, very nice, pretty much bullet proof, but occasionally do fail due to whatever. We replaced a 1086 with a 7120 when they first came out in 1987. It makes the Magnum® Tractor a very desirable loader tractor. Have had it over a decade like that and have never had a problem with it. To sum my opinion up if you have any use for the 1086 also and can justify both go for it if not trade and you will never be sorry.
Please be aware of BigIron's and. I don't know if there's anything to it or not. Same as they were selling for 5 years ago. Each piece will sell without reserve to the highest bidder. Yep no doubt the Magnum is on my wish list Would like to keep the 1086 though for a sprayer tractor as it's kind of a pain to switch from planter to sprayer a couple times. I do know that the 7120 is far more economical to run than our 1466. The 8920 does burn more fuel, but it has more power.
