Good saves. The Allis won't make you rich, but if you know someone who collects Allis tractors, I bet they don't have that one.

Probably not many survived.

Great job, Tyler! Nice tractor & mower. I think Alan is right about the Allis.

I agree with the guys, that A/C would be worth holding on to for the uniqueness. Sears looks good too. Nice saves!!:thumbs: You have pleased your fellow tractor nuts:smilewink:

the mow bee has a aluminum deck and the drive system is like a snow blower. A rubber wheel rides on a disk that turns a chain, that turns another chain to the wheel. it's all there, i think it might firer up and run. i'll keep you guys posted

Love the cast deck on that allis. We had an Allis dealer a few miles north of where we farmed and though I lookd at all the cool little tractors and mowers every year, I've never seen one like that. :smile1:
