The club shop sells the IT manual, though it doesn't mention the 880 specifically, I think it is included. It would be worth sending them an email to check, though there would be a bit of a delay due to staff holidays!

There are various "iffy" ones on eBay, mostly copies on CD ROM, but I couldn't guarantee the legality of any copies from original manuals.

Workshop manuals were only generaly held by the dealers, suppliers and those of them that serviced and repaired the tractors and the only way you would be able to obtain copies for any of the models was when the dealers closed down or changed to another brand. The best that I have found are the I&T manuals, although as said, not comprehensive, will give the competent mechanic a good basic understanding and knowledge to remedy faults, effect repairs and set up certain components. The manuals mentioned that are available on CD I have been told by numerous people that have bought them say that they are lacking in places in that there are chapters and paragraphs within the specific procedures that are missing, as if the original from which theywere copied had pages missing.
