The 826 will be a little heavier which would be advantageous if you will be round baling in hills. Both are good tractors the 706 had 2 different diesels, the early models had the D282 which was indirect ignition and had glow plugs, a fine engine as long as the glow plugs were used properly and maintained. The preferable later engine used was the D310 which is commonly referred to as the German Diesel, no glow plugs and were very good engines. The 826 had the D358 which also went into the 766,786 and 1420 combine, It had the same basic design as its big brothers the 414,436, and 466. The 826 also will have the newer shifters which are nicer to use than the 06 shifters. Condition and price will be your primary driver along with your personal preference.

Ah NO the 358 was the big brother to the 310 . The 360 U S made 300 series was the little brother to the 400 series as the 414-436-466. The 310 and the 358 were ok but they did not like loafing around as they would slobber . And just running a haybine or even a round baler might be enough to keep them from WET STACKING . But that i will not guarantee and the other down side on these engines are that the injection pump parts are getting hard to come by and good luck on finding a thermostat for them.
