That must be a late year 1986 model because I have an 86 and an 87 and my 86 has the older stlye dash with the decal. The 87 has the plastic dash cover and the silver 25th anniversery decals. This tractor has the newer dash but not the decals.

That is an interesting setup with the forks. I wonder how much weight you can lift using the forks set up like that.
I doubt you can lift much at all and if you increased the relief valve setting on the lift cylinder so that you could lift something you would break the attachment cylinder mounting bracket.

I wonder if it's for some type of portable pallet moving such one of those flatbeds trucks that have a crane?

That bar with the hook would fit in the receiver hitch and then a lift grabs it and put it on the ground, then that same lift truck unloads pallets using that same crane. The 226 is used to move the pallets to were the crane can't reach, when done the crane grabs the receiver hitch bar hook and loads it back on the flatbed?

Kinda like those forklifts that mount on the back of the lumber yard delievery trucks.

That's my guess, I have no idea other than that but as it's already been said, it wouldn't be able to lift too much.

That bar and receiver hitch might also be a anti-theft device like those steering wheel locks they used to sell for cars so that it can't be stolen.

I have been to Popular Bluff MO and they aren't known for their low crime rate!!

Emailed this gentleman and asked about receiver hitch and asked how much weight it would lift. Here is his answer: "T lift the tractor with a hoist onto a truck bed or a trailer. The forks will lift pallets about 6 inches from the floor." Didn't exactly answer my question on capacity, but hook is used to lift onto a truck as suggested by previous message.

Thanks for the replies on my question. I had assumed no more than the design equivalent of 250lbs.=snowblower,but there is the issue of the forks extending way out which may change the engineering.

What is that hitch receiver mounted on the floor for? What does that hook do? I am confused. :headscratcher:
I thought when I first saw it,that it was just sitting there,but I see it looks to be bolted there so I'm puzzled.

I wonder if this is/was used in some sort of landscaping business. Thos big tires on the back look like they would not leave much of an imprint, and the forks could be used to move pallets with sod or mulch, providing they don't over load it.

The rear tires treads are quit different, never saw treads like that. Could they be ATV tires? :headscratcher:

Those look like Grasshopper/Dixie Chopper tires. They are supposed to be the "most traction without tearing up the turf tires"
