It's just a late model 5610 II. 256 Ford engine. The 10 'S' series tractors used Genesis engines... still Ford tho.

What does the "special" denote?

Open center remotes? no dual power?

TIA, Dave

Edit: I'm referring to the 5610-II special, not the 5610S. I have a 5610-II, not "special" and it has CCLS remotes, dual power & double pumps.

I have no idea what the special denotes. In the case of this tractor it appears to be a very plain jane, 8 speed crash box with one pump. All 10 series hydraulics were closed center load sensing. The design of their lift cover porting was such that the controls were closed center load sensing.... so there's no such thing as an open center 10.
The only thing I can attribute the 'special' to is the fact that it may just be a very basic stripped down model which was becoming uncommon by that time.

I can't say with any certainty what the "special" in this case denotes, but I'd agree with the notion that it is synonymous with "basic" and "stripped down". Single pump, no Dual Power. Quite likely to have a single remote valve. Manufacturers had a way of calling tractors 'Special' and Deluxe" when they were anything but.

Interesting that it has the mesh guard on the left side of the transmission! That is usually to protect the operator from the hot hydraulic line from the front pump to the priority valve, the pump that isn't there! My '82 5610 came with a single pump, and no guard there, but when we added the second pump, the guard was part of the kit.

My thought on the mesh guard is that when you look closely at this tractor, you see a wire harness going into it. Likely it's there on yours, too. They're using the guard as a conduit. The more parts that stay the same between options the cheaper it is for the manufacturer--less steps and less employees... KISS, mass production and all that. In that same topic, the bottom cowl cover looks like the one for our 5000--even the cutout for the steering arm remains.

It might be just a simple 5610, but I wouldn't send it down the road if it was on my place. Our 5000 has proven itself in my 30+ lifetime
