I will going to an auction tomorrow where there is a 1600 diesel. I have started the tractor and it starts easy, idles smooth with little to no smoke except when giving it fast throttle. I saw no leaks in hydra-drive or on the engine. It has 18.4 34 tires with 50% tread left. Power steering seems to work well, and it goes into all gears. Sheet metal is good and overall, the tractor looks like it was taken care off. I couldn't drive it around , all the gears works and the clutch seems to work well, but it engages at about an inch off the floor.

My question is, was the 1600 diesel a good overall tractor and what is it worth? Were there any problems that were inherent in these tractors that would make it a "stay away from" type tractor?

How would this tractor compare in pulling power to a john deere 720 Diesel?

Your 720 was rated at 65 belt horspower a 1600 is slightly smaller but they have good engine but don't sell them short.If someone has upgraded with larger sleeves and pistons it could more than factory.Scott

there is no way a 720 JD is 65 hp. its 59 on the belt and 53 on the drawbar. cockshutt 1600 is 47 on drawbar and 58 pto.

Depends on which injectors as there two different types.I had one once it would out pull my 560.But running one all day would make your ears thump when you went to bed at night.No I am not pushing the 720 or the 560 they are my most dislked tractors along with the 460.None are here anymore.Scott

Good tractor. A neighbor had one he bought new. It was a narrow front. After he passed away,IHRedrules and I went to the auction. That one had a problem with the steering wanting to creep so you had to keep turning it to the left. The guy bidding against me didn't care. It brought $1500.

1600 were Lanova injection only (CAV injectors), you're thinking of the 1650 with both Lanova and direct injection.

IanC I was talking about the 720 john deere not the oliver.The 1600 I know has the Lanova injection system.The 1600 is a sweet tractor I would take over the ear ringing 720 diesel after owning one.Scott
