They are really good if they are fully functional and have been treated reasonably as they age.
They are not the best for tillage in that they use more energy to make go than a gear tractor. They are also damaged by full load or lugging in tillage applications as a steady diet.
As a loader tractor, or on a baler, they shine. Snow blowing is also perfect as the adjustable speed makes control easy.
Using it for tillage of small size plots and not demanding radical effort of the engine, is harmless.
I hope this helps. Jim

Think they were dropped because they were very thirsty.

Dropped by CIH at the merger, so 1984 would be the newest it is. I'd be scared of one unless I knew the history, could be an expensive fix if something goes.
They use the D246 like the 784 so slightly bigger engine than you D239 powered 684.
The "holy grail" IH 84 series loader tractor would be the Hydro 84 w/fwa and 2250 loader......

I have a line on one, just vaguely thinking about it. It has a 2250 loader on it one owner and was just used to clean out barns. Has about 3500 hrs on it. Bit of a drive to look at. We bale a little bit of hay about 2500 small square a year, and a hydro seemed interesting. I canít afford fancy new stuff so that is why I am looking at the older stuff. I rake hay with a super C or my super H. What might be a good price for one?

Thanks for the comments

I have a friend who deals in used equipment who had a low-hour Frod 3000 that he used to blade the manure out of his freestall barn. It hadn't seen fresh oil and filter in 20 years when it let go, sent it to auction.

My neighbor has a 656 Hydro, with a loader. In it's time it was the best loader and baler tractor. Good for everything except pulling a 4 bottom plow. We have a small JD hydro tractor, can't beat it.
