The 856 we had years ago was probably the best tractor we ever owned. IMO-That particular diesel engine is one of the most durable. If I were in the market for a tractor that size, I would strongly consider an 856.

Just my 2 cents worth

I don,t know, i,ll find out monday.

Don't recall the German engine in the 856. I believe it was in the 706 & possibly 756. A neighbor had a 706 with the german engine. Our 856 had an IH 407ci engine.

Very true Texas Paw Paw. I wasn't sure if the 856 got the german or not. We have a 706 wide front and 756 tricycle with the german engines. Both good running and powerful tractors.
