I am looking to upgrade from an old set of hoe drills to some form of air drill. what type I am not sure yet. I am looking at buying a tractor to pull it with. I have found a few versatile 846 and 876 fairly close to home for what seem like reasonable prices. I have looked on tractordata.com and it lists the 846 as having open center hydraulics and the 876 with closed. Is this true? If so I think I will avoid the 846 because I have been told I would burn up the pump on an air drill. Is this true as well? I have heard of people using them for running air drills.

I ran a Flexi-coil 5000/1720 tank with an 876 for nearly a decade, it worked fine. I thought the 846 was just a turned down version of same tractor??? I had mine up around 330HP with triples, it would pull that 45' drill through anything!:)

Someone on here will know for sure on the 846 hydraulics.;)

836/46 856 876 all had closed center load sensing hydraulics. it was the 5 series 835/75 that was open center.
If you can go 876, heavier driveline. 12 spd standard trans over a powershift and Avoid the 15 speed trans.
