Looking at a 806 gas with a dual remotes. Used mostly for hay and bushhogging. Any advantages of the gas engine or the diesel? Fuel consumption?

Your 6 cylinders are going to suck the gas but will start easier in the winter. A good block heater in the diesels are your best bet. It gets the combustion chamber warm where the combustion is to take place.

The only thing i do not like about and 806 gas is that it is a non sleeved engine . and you must run 93 octane gas . For what your wanting to do it may be fine . Keeping them tuned up is a vary good idea and i am not talking just plugs and points. Keeping the valves adjusted makes a huge difference keeping the timing set at spec.'s is a must. And must be done with each points change. Myself i like the 706 gassers better for chore work like baling pulling wagons and brush hogging . But for years i ran 706 gasser doing the tillage and got along just fine . Not sayen that i did not want something bigger and in a diesel but for the price difference i could buy two gassers in good shape for the price of one wore out diesel . at the time i was buying 706 gassers for no more the 1500 to 1750 for a sharp one and six spark plugs a set of points and fix the charging system left a lot of room for buying fuel.

Allen they are not that bad on fuel if your not pulling five bottoms or a 18 foot disc. We run the 291 cu. in. 706 gassers and i can mow rake twice and haul bales off 28 acres of some of the nastiest ground you ever want to be on on one fill up . and that is in first cutting with hay standing half way up the nose of the 706. Plus the fact that is on a hill that would make you flatlander squirm .

I have an 806D. I use it for sawthing and baling. I figure I"m about 3 gallons per hour running at 540 PTO Speed. I have heard that the gas gets worse. Works out to about 2 1/5 gallons per acre (with 9ft. swather and 336 baler) at the end of the season, this includes road time between fields etc.

If you had diesels in those tractors, you'd /probably go three years on one tankful on only twenty eight acres.

291/301s "might' pull three bottoms and a 12' disc at about 8-10 gal an hour.

Been there and done that.

Allen i have and 806 Diesel and trust me it is NOT a Toyota and there is not that much difference in the amount of fuel used when doing the same work on the same fields. as this is what my buddy thought as he insisted that i put a wide ft. on my 806 so we could use it for mowing hay . So HE bought the wide ft. and we put it on and started usen it to pull that piece of junk 1219 john Deere haybine guess what it uses almost as much fuel ya may save three gallon in a day. Now the down side to the diesel is that now to get the injection pump rebuilt ain't 350 to 425 anymore as even at my cost it will be 850 an at 47 bucks each for the injectors , and lets not get into rebuild cost on a 806 diesel .

Back in the eighties when everyone started buying little cars we did too. We bought a 1984 Horizon and it got 42 mpg. Bought it new my wife drove it, our other car was a beautiful 1978 Delta 88 olds with a 403 V8 that was mine. Bought it used out of a friends divorce, financed it 2 years and drove it 5. That was cheap transportation.

Have been very happy with our 806 Gas. Mine has not been that hard on fuel. We have a TA26 Westendorf loader on it and use it a lot. We have had no trouble with it.I have not adjusted anything in almost 20 years. We change the filters and fluids. Had the front tires filled many years ago and that has worked very well. No flat tires and no front weights needed. I highly reccomend this model. The shifter is not the greatest. My only criticism of it.

Well if ya ain't adjusted anything in twenty year then it is about time . I go over all the adjustments once a year one the gassers . The main thing is clutch trans brake and dump valve and when done they will shift with two fingers . And out of adjusted clutch trans brake and dump valve is one of the main reasons for T/A failure along with usen the T/A as a hold back down shift instead of the brakes.
