  • Would an 861 reasonably run a JD 24T square baler? Also is an 861 with power steering, rough paint, and a little oil burn worth 2500? Some thoughts would be appreciated.

  • Not sure this is an apples comparison, but if my 8n with a Howard can bale with a MF12, the 861 has more than enough power.

  • Here in Eastern NC, a 861 gas would bring around 3500$. Its Diesel counterpart would bring 4000 or better. These values are for presentable, fully functional machines of course. HTH, SoS.

  • 5 speed is desirable. I've had one and they are much better than the 4 speed. Reverse is much slower also and that's a good thing. Normally the 5 speeds came with the live power or as some call it 2 stage clutch. That is very desirable also if running a mower or a bailer.

  • It looks like metal is good but dull and dirty. Thank you. Guess it all depends how bad i want it. Trying to talk myself out of it.

  • Should be able to run the baler with no problems, price seems a little on the high side though given current economy.

  • It would run the baler with no problem. The condition of the tires and the 2 stage clutch would be major factors in the value of the tractor.

  • The seller said the clutch was good, not sure about the tires. Going to see it Sunday. Thank you for your input.
