Hi Woody Had a 7700 was a good tractor. Look for all the standard wear things/problems. You need to change the coolant every 2 years to reduce the risk of pin holes in piston liners due to cavitation. If it has done a heap of heavy PTO work PTO brake can fail and splines in hub on engine flywheel shear so need to be replaced. Don't abuse the dual power and if fitted with load monitor I would not use this and you won't have to many problems. We did extensive repairs on the 7700 which had been abused, hence my previous comments They are good tractors, controls fall easily to hand and have a reasonable selection of gears.

Like Matt said...
I've never hear anyone berate a 6700. They normally bring very good money for their age and size. Around here, $5k would be cheap.

Dual power can be worn out, slipping under load, and pto splines can be worn out, otherwise bullet proof tractors. This series did not have the cavitation problem that the next series had,

but always check the radiator for bubbles on any tractor, and oil for water or milk shake color. Check engine for cold starting, excessive smoke, excessive blowby, check lift and pto for proper operation etc.,etc,etc..

most tractors have worn power steering pumps, and bad charging systems, but are easy fixes.
