A 860/861 is a nice machine for rotary mowers! Believe those are the first ones with the live PTO. If you are fortunate enough to be able to find the auxiliary valve you can also have external hydraulics to run implements. Makes life worth living!
I ran mine a time or two on the 2N without a ORC. Makes for an interesting ride! Does not care if there is a tree in front of you or a ditch! Never got hurt but certainly had my heart in my throat a few times. Then I bought a ORC!
