Appreciate all the advice so far. I didn't get the IH 1586 bought on auction so still in search for a tillage tractor. Looking now at a 5288 and its in pretty good shape. It has the cable park lock that I've read can be a problem. Any thing else I should look for, pros and cons. Thanks guys!

I've never had an 88 series, but they seem to hold their value better than the earlier series

I prefer the 88 series. Better shifting. Preview to the Magnum.

I am more of a "green tractor" guy, but I do like the 50 series IH tractors. I have operated two 5288's and a 5488, as well as a few of the 86 series tractors. I enjoyed my time spent behind the wheel of all three of the 50 series IH tractors. Operating the 50 series, particularly the transmission, is superior to those in the prior series of tractors. I think you will be happier in the long run with the 5288 over the 1586, but that is my opinion.

Have used a 5288 for plowing and pulling no till drill with I think its a very good tractor as can be seen they carried a lot of it onto the first Magnums.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
