Thanks for the feedback Its funny you mention the 706 I found a good deal on one but wasnt sure. Is cold weather the reason behind the hard starting issue as I'm in sunny Florida and we rarely see prolonged cold spells.

The 706's with the D282 are known to start hard because they are a glow plug diesel. Folks tend to neglect them causing starting issues. As long as the system (ie; glow plugs, wiring, switch) are in good shape they start just fine. Even in your warm Florida climate you'll still need to hold the glow plug switch for about 20-30 seconds to start the tractor. They are a little light on power though compared to the later 706's which had the kraut D310. While the D310 is an excellent engine, it is very costly to overhaul while the D282 is much cheaper. Now if the 706 your looking at is gas, then this whole conversation is pointless... 8)

i'll second that. bought a 706 w/ 282 couple years ago for cheap and "needs work." got it running, all new glow plugs and switch. haven't done anything to engine, and it probably needs some attention. but it starts fine. needs 10 sec of glow plugs in the summer, maybe a minute in the winter. but it'll start.

Great feedback Thanks I guess it falls back on keeping up good maintenance on your machine. What year did they switch from the 282 to the 310?

Don't forget the 1456--the latest-introduced of the 56 series, and the most powerful! Plus a little beefier on the front end than even the mighty 1256. Just sayin'.
