First,the hour meter on a tractor of that age is only a guide,ck. blow by,see if power shift feels ok,ck.PTO see if it turns off,she will be easy enough on fuel,the ride will be good because of wheel base and weight,far far better to get one a pinch to big rather than to small.

I'd say a bit of overkill hp wise, to much weight to run across my hay ground. I use my 400 50hp or my 830Ck with my 12 footer, with ease. Again, at least for me, even with the duals, to much weight. A really good tractor, but getting older and you have to like to putz. I use mine just to turn my round baler that makes 6x6 bales. Make sure the powershift is ok, and that's a question in itself

I should have addressed soils when I was mumbling above about weight. Fields having a history of commodity cropping will be much firmer than non-tilled areas and of course your farm will be different than mine. I have a very high in organic matter Maryland loam soil, and in our area high ground water, no more then 5 or 6 ft down in most years. This leads to mighty soft ground in a wet spring. I cut my hay by the sugar content of the grass leaf, the higher the brix number, the better. So I may be harvesting my hay around the weather (first cutting) and have to run on ground that will compact. Not to many miles to my East, the last glacier blessed the boys with gravel, rocks, and rolling ground. They can run across it in a blinding rainfall, and leave not a trace....... It was my 2 bits tempered by the experience on my farm

thinkin same as you ,,. I mate the 800 to the 489nh haybine in mid may , and they mite stay that way for 2 monthes,,,, also use a DC, and a gutsy 430 ...if the 1070 is clean and not buggered with ,, 65 is a good seeling price ,, keep in mind it may only fetch half that , if its ondition goes downhill , or worse if the motor or p/shift goes .green ones are twice that price ,,and are not any better in spite of what the owner says ... go figure ..

I am going to look at it today.I have a question about transmission options.Owner says it has eight speeds forward and two reverse.Looking at tractordata.com their saying two transmission options: eight speed and a twelve speed power shift.For the sake of simplicity and reliability I would think the eight speed trans would be better?But I have never owned a Case.I have farmed with Fords,IH,Deere and Masseys so I guess I have no brand loyalty...I like em all.Thank you for the input,much appreciated.

The 8 speed is bulletproof, but with this many years on the linkage it can get sloppy. Other than that you will have no trouble with the transmission. The motor has enough torque that you will rarely, if ever, have to downshift. Good Luck! Don

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
