I think I found what might be a 881 with selectomatic tranny with loader, don't know if it will run sitting in a garage, would it be worth investing money into it can pickup fairly cheap.

If you do buy it before moving disconnect the rear with lever on round cover on rear center housing

Not running it is a bigger risk than most tractors. Scrap metal has very low value currently, if you find that it needs extensive repair. Tires are expensive so if they are good it can raise the value significantly.

Select-O-Speed. I would advise getting it running satisfactorily, and thoroughly operate the transmission. Though I would imagine trying out the higher gears/speeds might not be so easy, you can tell a lot from how it performs in the lower gears.
Be sure to check the fluid level and condition of this transmission and or look it over carefully, same as the rest of it.

There is a lot to know about these, I liked them, had a slightly newer model of the same tractor for years. With a loader on it, it may have seen more wear and abuse, check the front pivot pin/front axle assembly, you'll want to note any significant wear and or excess play in the assembly. Might be best to jack up the front end. Be safe doing that.

Find out what you can on it's history, why was it parked, when was it last in use, what problems did it have etc.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
