Just curious if you received my pm?

Why farm half when you can FARMALL!

Give fools their gold, and knaves their power;
Let fortune's bubbles rise and fall;
Who sows a field, or trains a flower,
Or plants a tree, is more than all.- Whittier.

Well I am not sure what happened, but I wrote that this tractor is rock solid. very dependable, easy to use, etc. It came with 66 pto HP and 58 drawbar ponies. Nothing to note about the D312. It is a reliable little engine. They did convert to the D310 Kraut power. If you were to check anything, check out the 3 pt. Make sure it holds pressure, meaning, if you are attaching an implement to it, does it hold or does it settle? Just check the obvious, otherwise, like the pto, hytrans fluid etc. I have operated the 666 which is nearly identical to the 686, besides the model #. Reliable workhorse, utility tractor etc.
