I won't say much else for now. This may be the only one in exsistence.

My guess is its for placing headstones, although the front tires would sink in pretty bad if the ground was soft.

???

I don't know what it is, but I can say it used a lot of A/C model "B" parts. Engine, hood, gas tank, hubs- rims -wheels, fenders. Must be hydrostatic drive.

Wow, this is the most correct information so far and much more than I expected.

It's a thingamabob puller. Never see those here these days, as thingamabobs left Ky years ago. In other words....I have NO idea!

I wonder if it was built by A/C for their factory or if it was built by someone else using the B as a base to build off of.

I dont know what it is, I am interested to find out! It looks like it would be a handy thing to have around, both for show and for use.

It kind of throws me having ags on the back, as if for use on dirt, but then has the solid rubber wheels up front, which would not do well off paved surfaces.

I thought there was an Allis in there.
Possibly for large feed stores? Like a motorized pallet jack now days?

I was thinking maybe the rear end off an A/C G and it is an engine hoist. Low front end slides under the vehicle, all work done on concrete.

A/C rotated the bull gear section of the rear axle on their Industrial model to make it sit lower. That maybe what was done here and flipped the center section to make it have 4 forward speeds go in the right direction.
