Not the Allis Chalmers of Old When They Were Built in the USA Posted by Les Lane on 05/11/2013

My uncle advised me not to buy this tractor but I talked to some of the locals here in Northern California and was told that it was most likely a pretty good tractor for the money.

Turned out to be a real lemon. It leaks from every gasket surface, the 3 point bobs up and down and will actually hurt your lower back if you drive it while it is bucking as it does.

The front loader is driven by a very small rotary pump on the PTO and won't pick up more than 500 pounds. It also leaks down immediately when you shut the engine off. I haven't found a single redeeming feature on this tractor that is worth mentioning.
