The 9/1070 tractors are the same except the engines. 401cu.in. 970 and 451 in 1070. They both have 540/1000RPM PTOs the 8spd is not a syncro, and can be a bit mean to shift. The PS tranny is a 4spt with 3 on-the go shifts, plus a shuttle reverse. Offering 12 speeds forward, and 3 reverses (4th reverse locked out on newer tractors) The 970 was extreamly good on fuel, and has plenty of weight and power to handle a round baler even on hills. Power shift problems were minimal, if proper maintainance was done on the tranny. One thing that caused problems in the PS valve and thus clutch packs, was when an owner changed the PS filter he didn't realize there was a cold oil relief, (seperate part) that often ended up in the bottom of the drain bucket, and wasn't reinstalled in the new filter, thus the new filter did not filter the oil flowing to the control valve. Other than that they were more dependable than other brands of their size. Loren
