I don't know. In the mid 90's my BIL wanted to go to a larger tractor but didn't want to spend any real money. He paid 5500 for a 1566IH with extra fuel tanks, front weights and decent rubber. PO had reciepts for a TA less than 100 hours before. It was his prime tillage tractor for 6 years. Only reasonhe got rid of it was because he wanted one of his boys to stay on the farm and the one willing wanted an 86 series IH. Then last 2 years they bought an AC 8070 MFW with a nice Koyker loader on it. The tight wad part bit again that's why he got it. Paid real close to 20K for it. It cost his an extra 10K for a major engine overhaul and now is back in for something with the tranny. Man that sure wasn't a good deal. On the other hand I got a 1206 IH for 4500. So far I've got about 1200 into a clutch job including a new rear engine seal, along with a new IPTO shaft and related bearings and seals and another 300 into a new MCV pump that will go in tomorrow. Have had it going on 4 years. Now what's cheap?
