Thoughts on 1850 diesel

I just bought a 1800a gas and love it, and now I have the oliver bug and want another one with more power. I saw an 1850 diesel with just the two speed in Lori Lin Farms in Orrstown PA for $5800 and I am thinking on going to look at it. I like this model because the two speed seems much easier to work on that the ones with hydra power. Is this 1850 model a good overall tractor and was the diesel motor reliable? What are some obvious problems I should look for when testing it out? I don't have experience with diesels other than my JD 720. Do you think $4000 a reasonable offer for this tractor? If you search on tractorhouse you can see the photos.

We had a 1850 diesel. One of the best 90-100 hp tractors ever made buy anyone. If would be hard to figure out which was better between the 1650 and the 1850. Two of the greatest tractors ever made. I am a little biased but I would take a 1850 over JD 4020 any day.

Olivers are pretty popular in that area so 4K probably won't buy it with Spring coming and all.Also if you like Olivers you need to swing down to Newville and check out Harry Barricks
place he has a good size collection of interesting Olivers plus a neat store and huge tire business.

I'm currently overhauling the perkins engine in my 1850, sticking a lot of time and money into an old tractor. It's been a love/hate relationship with this tractor over the years but when it's good there isn't a better 90-100 hp tractor around. I can put up with the quirks of the fifty series hydraulics.
If you can buy it for $4000 great. I wouldn't sell mine that cheap.

Going down hill in under is the same as neutral. Engine will not hold hold it from coasting.

Good reliable old tractors, just remember the 2 speeds free wheel in low side. Its been 40 + years since I ran a 3 speed can't remember if they do too. Somebody refresh the old memory please.

Olivers answer to the 4020 Deere. One of the best models Oliver built. Dependable engine,excellent on fuel.

If you mean the transmission HI-LO range only, then tractor is six speed. The Two speed Hydra-Power shift on the go makes it twelve forward, four reverse. Over-Under three speed shift is eighteen forward, six reverse. THAT'S what I'd want..
