I don't understand. Looks like about 8" of ground clearance. What is this used for?

Rod, if you're only going by the lack of a differential lock pedal to determine that it has the single reduction rear end, then that might not be accurate. My '73 4000 has a double reduction rear end, yet it lacks the differential lock pedal, as well as the hole in the right side axle trumpet for the shaft, as well as the internal differential lock parts, as the differential lock was not standard on the '65-'75 4000 series, it was an option. Looking at the 4600 parts diagrams, the differential lock appears to have also been an optional on them as well, as it lists 2 different part numbers for the right axle trumpet, one with diff lock, and one without.

That may be... but I've never seen one without around here.
The housing looks to me like the lighter housing. PTO housing also appears to be for the mechanical PTO... and the shift lever for the PTO is clearly the sliding collar variety of the light rear end rather than the wet clutch control valve.

It's a well painted mutt... I would say from looking at it... it started life as a 3600 conversion built from a very basic skid. There is no hydraulics but it does use the single reduction rear end... suggesting it was a 3600 skid. Note the lack of differential lock pedal that would also have been present on all double reduction rear ends.
Add to that... the shif decals suggest it has the 6x4 manual reversing transmission.
The engine is a 10 series engine given that the block has external ribbing. That's not really a big thing given the number that pinholed over the years. Many just dropped a BSD engine in place of the bad engine... or at least changed out the block to the new style on rebuilding. The rest of it... sheet metal and all... looks to me like a 3600. It is quite possible that the engine was upgraded to a BSD332 or 333 that would make the suggested 55 hp...

Also note the pads for the radius rod sockets. Not on 4000's except SU.

But non-SU 4600's DO have them.

I've never seen a 10 series in person, so I wouldn't know for sure, but the parts lookup on Messicks site (The New Holland web site's parts lookup seems to be broken) shows the dipstick on the left for the3610, 3910 and the 4610.

Don't know if all models in the 10 series had the right hand dip sticks or not... or maybe they started that on the II's.

It is hard to tell exactly what it is from the pictures.
Besides the 3600 decals, it also has the grill of the 2600/3600/4600 series. It also has the ccw tachometer of the '75 and up 2600/3600/4600 and later series.

It has the single sided steering box like the 4000/4600, so it's not likely a 3600 despite the decals, more likely a 4600.

Another oddity is that it looks to have a dual stick transmission like a 6 or 8 speed, but the sticker on the dash looks to be for the single stick 4 speed.

Also, it has the engine dipstick on the right hand side, which is wrong for all 3 cylinders from 1965 through 1990 as far as I know. Maybe the engine was swapped out at some point with one from a standalone generator or irrigation pump setup? Or did they make them with the dipstick on the right on some model that I'm not aware of?

I'd noticed the grill and tach as well. I missed the 4-speed decal. The steering box is likely a 4000/4600 piece, but it's a manual box with a 4000-style power assist cylinder, rather than an integral p/s box. Would be interesting to see the trumpets, to see if it has a single or double reduction rear end. With the ribbing on the side of the block, I assumed it was a BSD replacement engine, with the dipstick on the right like series 10 tractors.

The grape harvesters I've seen actually straddle the rows of vines, which that one couldn't do because of those cross braces between the rear wheels

In the description it says "draw bar added" so the cross pieces would have been added to accommodate the draw bar. Note also the high position of the PTO.

Hmmm... a '77 4000 with a new 4-cylinder diesel and 3600 decals... Somebody needs to put more work into their descriptions! Some of those really hi-crops started out as grape harvesters. This one doesn't look quite that tall, though. That's just down the road a ways from one of my cousins...I better not look through the auction bill, or I might want to bid.
Sounder better not look either- there's a 6000 n/f right next to it!

That one appears to be stripped down. The ones I have seen had a chemical tank and spray booms. They were used to apply weedkiller to crops such as corn that had already started growing tall.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
