Here's the story I have a 706 diesel 282 ,rebuild motor last year.15.5-38at 75%,and fast hitch,could use paint every thing works.I one run,27 acres of hay ground so fuel use age is minor, a farmer in the area has a 770 gas PS,daul ptos,dual hyd.ans 18.4 34 worn 40%he put a cab on and painted the whole tractor red.the local dealer said my 706 was worth only around 4000 at the high end. Is this 770 worth a even trade,he said the tractors rare.he collects 706 and dosen,t have a good diesel yet. We both are not sure on hours as both hours meters don,t work.any advice or opinions would help.thanks Steve in dry se wi.

I'm a fan of the 770s, but that 706 diesel is much more of a tractor than the gas 770. The 706 would dyno around 75-80 hp, with the 770 would be 55-60 hp. If the 706 had the later 310 german diesel, it would even be close....

The 770 would have much better brakes and a more desirable throttle system. The standard category II three-point hitch would also be a plus for the 770.

The fact that the 770 was painted red would be a big negative for me. It's not that I dislike red paint, but painting tractors the wrong color is sacreligious IMHO...

I guess the answer to your question lies in your needs. If horsepower is a consideration the 706 wins hands down. If more modern systems (power steering, brakes, three point high, etc) the 770 would get the nod. If the latter is true...quality paint can be had from your friendly CNH dealer...

The 706 will use way less fuel,has more hydraulics,dual PTO,the brake part is not true,up more out of the dirt,the fast hitch is handy to hook up for diffrent heights.I have both tractors I like the 770 but wouldn't trade.

Steve you have a good old tractor that you have rebuilt the engine on.

Unless you need a cab i would have to keep the 706. You know what you have.

Tires are worth a lot. 40% rubber on the 770 means you may need new rubber soon.

18.4x34 rubber where i live are $800 plus labor and tube/each.

Personally i would love to have a nice 770 case with a cab. because I need a cab for health reasons.

The 706 should be 65-70 hp which i think is a little more than the 770 gas 55-65hp

Your 706 maybe worth $4000 but I think the 770 gas is similar in value.

You didnt say but is the 770 a powershift? Is the powershift OK?

Do you round bale hay or square bale hay. If you round bale you may need the extra HP of your 706.

Just some thoughts.

Tough call, I'm not a huge fan of any 706, but I wouldn't trade a dsl tractor for a gas. Since the 770 has been cosmetically abused I'd say keep what you've got.
