Looking at a late model IH 684 with 2500 hrs and the H shift pattern. Tractor seems to work well however it has a Laurin cab and I'm surprised how noisey and hot it is inside when operating. Is that just the way it is or can they be lined to lower the noise level? Are cab parts still available? The cab is not rusty, just needs a little attention to a few hinges and replace one cracked, lower glass.

The 684 really ran well for a couple hours today mowing some significant bushes and is a great match for my Bush Hog 296. Seems like it would play with my 3 furrow plough and 10 foot disk. I like the tractor but not sure about the cab. Could always sell the cab I suppose and go open station. I see some people remove the doors for summer work but would that reduce the noise resonance inside the cab?

Yeap. He has had it for quite awhile and at times can be quite difficult to deal with however I must have caught him at a good time because he was very cooperative and helpful. I noticed a few issues with the lights, etc and he is fixing them up and installing a new Firestone on the right to match the newish, left one shown.

I ran it about ten hours mowing, some of which was pretty nasty stuff, and I was impressed. I was also surprised how dry most of the ground was considering our wet fall. I may even try to plough some of the worst ground down on the long weekend if the weather clears again. Too many sticks for the three furrow though so may try the Fiskar breaking plough. Might be slow but shouldn't clog up much and it would surely get under the alder root masses.

Good purchase then. I usually find his asking prices "high" so nice that you were able to make a deal.
I see he has a ton of stuff on Kijiji now so he must be really looking to move some stuff.
The ground was soaking wet for Sept, dried a bit in Oct, I have some garden ground to get plowed, but don't want to make a mess.

Breaking plow will work best in the sticks and roots, nothing to really plug it. Your 6 will play with either plow. I plowed some ground with the 2 furrow last spring and kept plugging in roots...Glad I wasn't using the 3 furrow.

I bought it. It worked really well and was a good price. I will give it some time to decide if I will keep the cab or not. They are apparently easy to sell for a good price if I decide to remove it. I will check at Fort the next time I pass through Amherst. Thanks

A friend used to operate a 585 with Laurin cab, they always took the doors off and pull hinged windows out in the summer. Ear muffs a must!
I would not want a cab tractor for summer work unless it had A/C.
Laurin is still in business, Quebec company, try them for service items

A good many 84 and 85 series were sold here with a SIMS or Laurin cab dealer installed, as a side effect, most CIH dealers had a stock of fenders and ROPS.

If you buy it and want fenders & ROPS, try Fort, they might have some. I was at the Babineau Equipment auction several years ago (Moncton CIH) and there was at least 10 sets of removed fenders and ROPS for 85 series.

I remove the doors and sometimes the rear window as well.Yes it does reduce sound a little,but not much.I wear headphones at times to protect my ears.The shade of the'canopy' and a little air circulateing make hot summer operation a lot more comfortable.
