there's a Unico for sale in IN by me and is only 10hp. Not much info on it. Pix not real clear. Looks like might be a hydro lever where my Farm Kings had, but this one  has a small wheel or ? probly welded to top of it. More just like a handle, not a way to turn it?  Anyone familiar with it?  It is green, the rear fenders are not so flat and have kinda of bend down sides and rears. Don't think 3pt on it, doesn't say and hard to see amongst other tractors on trailer. Thinking of calling to look at it, but not real sure. If not hydro, guess I'll pass. The add has no contact info either.

As far as I know, the hydro models were only the top of the line engines (14/15/16hp depending on year) so no 10hp.

The rear fenders being the style you mentioned are also a give away that it's a gear drive model.  It should also have 12" wheels instead of the 15"s on the hydros.


A 10hp engine would make it a model 760.

It does sound like a 960. I believe the service manual is in the manuals section if you want to take a look.

If it's the one I seen he has had that up for awhile. Those GT's usually go fast. I would hit him with a very low offer then work up. Let us know if you get it.

if that's the one on Indy CL, it's not a hydro.
