You probably covered Newtons First Law already:

"An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force"

its in a balanced state (800-800=0) but considering it has 800N of force pushing it forwards i doubt its stationairy, so it is moving at a constant speed
