A neighbor is offering an 826 to me. I know the tractor. I used it last year to plant with since my planting tractor was in the shop. It seems to be fairly sound with about 3700 hrs. What can yall tell me about this model? What should I look for. I appreciate any advice you can give me. Thanks in advance.

We have two 826 tractors, check for antifreeze in the oil. Around 3000 hrs the O-rings at the bottom of the cylinders begin to leak . Both tractors had this problem. Other than that excellent tractors.

Buy this tractor! The 826 was one of IH's best models. Too bad they didn't make more of them. Our 786 has the same 358 German diesel. It has 6500 hours and it is still going strong. We use it for everything and never have problems. They are very easy on fuel too. If you live in a cold part of the country, it will start right up if you plug in the block heater for a couple hours. Overhauls can be expensive, but some of these German diesels have over 8000 on them before they need it. 826's and 786's are very similar, so you should have a reliable tractor.

The 826 is a good tractor. They are powered by a 358 cubic inch german diesel. The engine has a good reputation for power and durability. Overhauls can be expensive. But with the hours you stated, you shouldn't have to worry about that for a while. I would drive the tractor and be sure the trans. was quiet in all gears forward and reverse (No clunking). I would also be sure the parking brake holds well. Transmission work is very expensive. That's a couple of things that come to mind. Hope it helps.

I appreciate the comments. I like this tractor. It has an oil leak on the left side that I have to fix. It is a hoss.
