Ford Tractors that came with 540/100 shafts

Need some advice:

The 5200 I have has been a workhorse. I don't know if I will be able to bring myself to sell it but that might be determined by what I can find. I need about 15 more hp and the 1000 RPM shaft option to run a few things I have around. One being a 1k rpm cutter.
What Fords came with a 540/1000 shaft you could swap in the 75-100hp range?

I'm thinking about something like a 7810 or 6810? Don't know if the shafts swap....
Seem to be a lot of 6710's and 7710's around my area.

Don't know about the 40 series but they seem more complicated in electronics and hydros. Not against it, but like to own things I can fix myself.

I was leaning towards something like a 7810 because of the size of the machine. I am riding around in a pine thicket for the most part. My 2 big tractors keep duals on them. But there has been a lot my M7040 has to do alone because the other tractors are too big. That's where the 5200 has been a real nice machine for me. I would just like something a little newer with a few more horses and the option of a 1000 shaft swap would be icing on the cake.

Look in the parts section of this site for an idea of what was available. When I got my 7710 it was missing the 540 shaft but is was easy to find I love the ford 3 and 4 cylinders tractors. One draw back to the 7810 is 100hp and a 21 gallon fuel tank

My 7700 has both. Just take out the snap ring and switch the shaft

As to whether a used tractor that had both 540 and 1000 rpm PTO when it left the factory still has both shafts with it after all these years is another question altogether.

I think all Select-O-Speed models could be ordered with the 1000 rpm option. Some, but not many 5000's had 540/1000 capability - it was optional on late 5000's with the 8-speed. It was also optional on the 7000, and more common. Once you get into the 6 cylinder models, (8000 and bigger or newer) it was standard, except some that were 1000 only. From 1976 on, it was an option on naturally aspirated 4 cylinder models, and standard on turbocharged 4 cylinder models. So a 7600, 7700, 7610, or 7710 would have it.
