Don, Wide only. Narrow fronts on 70 series make them look way older than what they are. Just my opinion.

Narrow! You can always wiggle it in a tight spot in the shed, takes up much less of that valuable shed space. Don't see many 70's that way. They look cool.

Don

I've been trained in polling place management by the state of Florida.

It seems the vote was unanimous for NARROW. The polls are now closed and the ballots misplaced.... Carry On!

I have several narrow front tractors. I normally would say the narrow front. They are much less popular as well as excellent for parking in the shed in less space and showing. However you are not just dealing with an 870. You have a black knight. You need to leave it just as it came from the factory. If you are planning to show the tracotr, I would get a copy of the build card to display with it. Anyone can restore a tractor or modify one. To keep one origional is much tougher to do and very much appreciated.

Don L,

Don R says narrow, only because it looks cool and rarely seen. Used to be a 1030 narrow front that smoked the competition at local fairs here. Very cool, but not very safe IMHO. Don

Don, I have to make the same decision soon also, and came to this conclusion.I have a narrow front set ready to go as I'm sure you have also. For now when I finish the 870 the wide front stays on. If I use the tractor alot the wide front will stay on most of the time. But I do plan on displaying it every few years with the narrow on and it will probably stay on if I retire it from active duty. So as far as I'm conserned you can't go wrong either way, it will be a darn nice tractor. Rod.

I agree that if it had a wide front from the factory that is the way it should stay. Narrow just looks cool.

Wide front. Around here wide is not that common, and besides it looks good just the way it is. My two cents worth, Allan.

Don: I'm starting to worry about you. WIDE!! Putting a narrow front on an 870 is like putting a cheap $3.00 wig on a Queen or Princess.

Narrow, thats what my 770 is, its much handier and takes up less shed room. Its not like you need the stability to mow road ditches.
