806-1206 each had the D361.But the 1206 had the DT361.It was special built for the turbo.Cooling jets on the pistons,larger radiator,bigger fan to handle the extra heat.There may be more...The rear end/final drives are also heavier to handle the extra power.There is also the bigger Category 3 point hitch.So no,a 1206 is NOT an 806 with a factory turbo added.It is a completely different tractor.Similar, but different

I may be wrong on this, but IIRC reading about the 1206 they had to hold it off the market for some time. Gear train was beefed up, but had to wait for someone to make tires strong enough to withstand the torque. WJ

Can't give a direct quote, loaned the history book to my brother, he loaned it to his son, he loaned it to a buddy. Figure won't ever get it back. Anyway, IIRC existing tires had plenty of traction, but the high torque would rip the sidewalls apart. Had to wait for someone to make a stronger tire. Willie
