The 800 series was built 55-57, the 801 series was built 58-62. I have the diesel in my 841 and love it. The power steering is needed if you're going to put on a loader unles you like realy big arm muscles. I have heard different opinions on the SOS those in favor say maintenance is the key and since you have a diesel at least you have that in common. The detractors mention a shortage of expensive replacement parts. In good running condition I think $4800 is in the ballpark. I think that the tractor would be quite usable on your horse farm.

I think the 800 series tractors are great! I have had a 850 and now have an 861. I think the extra horse-power comes in handy. I dont do much farming with my 861, mostly brush hog with it. I do plow my garden with it though, it sure does pull a 2-bottom plow good, much better than my fathers 8-N! My 850 had 45 horse-power, all the 801 series have 50 horse-power. The 861 tractors have live PTO that is handy when you do a lot of brush hogging.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
