Tractor Info


For top pulling power, the 856 tractors fit the bill. With 90 drawbar and 100 PTO horsepower, six plows were no problem. Power disc brakes, dual-stage dry type air cleaner, and torque amplifier were all standard features of the 856. Extras included torsion bar draft control, weight transfer attachment, wedge lock wheels, and dual shaft independent PTO. The 856 was available in regular, high clearance styles, with engine choices of gasoline, propane, or diesel models.
