Well I bought the beast. It seems to be just fine on the shifting, especially once I got used to it.

It needs some TLC but think it is a solid tractor overall.

Thanks for info.

Yes it has a large range of motion and takes a bit to get the hang of to find the gears.    Basically you have a 4 speeds and a reverse with a real high 5th gear for on the road.  Then you can go way over on the left with the stick to choose a hi or low.  Plus you have yet another  shifter on the floor boards in front of the seat  that's either a foot type or stick  shift that gives you another hi/low.  I rarely use the floor one as I have enough gears for what I do with the main stick.   That would be the biggest complaint from people who drive mine is getting the hang of the gear shifting.  I have no issues but then I drive it all the time. 

On mine it does touch the remote levers up on the dash when shifting into high range.  Been like that for 19 years.  I included some pics to show the range of mine to the right in case the one you're looking at does have something quite worn.  In the picture there you can see what I circled that gets worn. I've replaced that bolt in the square  there and the circle there is some parts worn on mine I was just actually thinking of addressing this winter.  AS we were using the 825 quite a lot this summer tedding hay and the driver was having difficulty finding gears so I though I better try and tighten it up a bit again.

My loader is controlled with the joystick.  The red rod/handle set up is to work the 3pt hitch lever as the factory lever in the spot they put it is terrible for doing rear work.  In newer models they changed it the trans shifting and included a second shifter on the right and snycro gear box.  I can shift mine on the go but its sort of like driving a truck with straight cut gears you have to have the right  speed vs rpm and it will fall right in.  Plus double clutching helps for the road gear.

It is the type of shifter that you explained. But the range of motion is so far that it is running into the hydrolic controls on for the loader on the right side of the dash. Also to shift into the high range it runs into the hydrolics for loader also. Travel from the top range to the bottom range is close to two feet.

No worries if there is parts for this and it can be improved, but in this condition the gears on the left could not be found only 9 over to reverse.

They are sloppy that's just the way they are.  It's not like a normal transmission shifter stick.   They use one stick to work  a high/low on the far left then the main gear box all with the one shifter. You can though tighten it up as the pivots, bolt and parts under the right side of cab get worn some over time.   They do take a while to get the hang of shifting to find the gears easily. Once you do its not bad and it can be shifted on the go.

Does this have the plastic dash or steel? As the older 825s had a little different shifting set up then the one I described. 

Parts are readily available for thesending tractors.

825 Sloppy shifter

I am looking at purchase on an 825 Belarus.

The shifter is extremely sloppy. The wear seems to be on the shaft coming out of transmission or the attatchement of the shifter to this shaft. Maybe even a sheared pin or key of some sort. Is this typical of this tractor and are parts readily available. If this could be fixed that tractor seems to be a very sound piece of equipment.

All info about this tractor would be greatly apprecieated.
