    Default Maiden pull with my new to me trailer

    This was my first pull with my Allis Cane tractor to our local show Saturday.
    A little over 7,000 of tractor and 3,500 of trailer, my 15 year old truck pulled and stopped it well, but this load will only go to very local shows. With my other tractors it has been a BIG improvement over my bumper pull trailer. Just my opinion, but anybody buying or building a trailer without a 8-10,000 lb winch or hydraulic ramps is crazy. I hurt my back on a ramp several years ago, and now just pushing a button and watching them rise is worth every dime and will be more so as I get older.

    Nice setup! A trailer is a nice thing to have. My friends sure love using mine.

    Nice rig. I'm looking for something like it.
    How about giving more info on your truck and trailer?

    That AC cane tractor looks nice also. What's the model?

    Although I have a bumper pull trailer now I have owned a fifth wheel in the past. Fifth wheel trailers are so much nicer to pull. A lot less wear and tear on the truck and the driver. They make the truck ride better and the trailer doesn't "work" the truck like a bumper pull does.

    Flusher, the truck is a 95 F-350 w/ 7.3 PowerStroke, the trailer is a 20' long, 102" wide local built K&K Welding MFG trailer, with 2" oak, 9,000 Ramsey winch w/50' remote, full width hydraulic folding 8' long ramps. 7,000 lb Dexter torsion ride axles, brakes on all wheels and full LED lighting. It needs blasting and painting, but no money in the budget this year! The tractor is my baby! 1948 Allis Chalmers UC Thompson Conversion Sugar cane tractor, one of only 1568 made.

    Thanks for the info on your PU and trailer.

    That's one sweet tractor restoration.

    I'm looking of an AC model B to add to my collection of vintage iron --1951 Farmall Super A, 1951 Minneapolis Moline BF (currently in pieces for a complete restoration) and a 1964 MF-135 diesel. Hope to find one next year.

    Thanks, I wish it looked that good up close, the restoration was done by the previous owner in the late 80's, it really needs a good bit of work as all the original rawhide seals are gone and leaks everywhere, but due to the size of this ole girl, fixing it's problems will have to wait on better times and a much bigger shop!

    Great looking pictures, guess i didn't know how many different types of tractors were made back then. Never been to a "tractor show" but will keep my eyes open for one in my area. Thanks for sharing.

    Enjoyed your slides.
    Looks like you have a considerable backlog of old iron that I assume you plan to refurbish/restore.
    Same here. My current project is a 1951 Minneapolis Moline BF tractor (27 hp Hercules gas engine). It's completely disassembled now.

    The engine was rebuilt last summer. I'm spray painting parts now. Hope to have it back together early next year.

    When I first saw this thread, I thought, "7,000#? Really? That tractor doesn't look THAT big..."

    Then I saw the picture. Not so much big, as being chisled out of one single ingot of iron! Get in soft ground and I'll be those front wheels are tillers as much as anything else!

    And as a nice middle-finger to OSHA, I love the power take-off just below your right foot. I'm sure that does well to spin an un-guarded 6" wide belt or two. Ahhhhh to live in (through) those different times. Now we need Congressional approval to drink strong coffee.

    Very pretty tractor. And glad to hear about the ramps...something to think about.

    Those of you who think you know it all are particularly annoying to those of us who do.
