Recently purchased an Allis B-212 to use to pull with. Can't wait to see how it does. I will be pulling stock. Got to get the engine back in it and running.

I don't see many allis chalmers pulling around here, but it is always cool to see someone be different. Have fun with it.

   The bevel gear box is the weak link in there, not sure how it will hold up to the pulling.  I use mine around here all the time and it has tons of power, pulls like crazy if you can keep the wheels in traction.

I use one for my kids and get all kinds of compliments on this little tractor. It pulls really good. Got 23 .10-50/12 turfs on it. We won a couple second trophies this past week end. Only issue I have is its so light had to add couple hundred pounds of weight. Good little tractor for stock class.

Thanks, I wanted something that was different not just another Cub Cadet. I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with CC I just wanted something a little different.

Anyone have any tips on garden tractor pulling? I have never pulled before and got this tractor to be my first.

There's an older thread in the pulling section that deals with stock pulling that would be helpful.

I was always curious how the variables did in pulls?  99% of the variables I have had were too worn for normal use, much less pulling.  I had one that was so bad, I mowed down the hill into my back yard, and had to pull it back up to the front with a tow strap and my pickup.  It just slipped too badly.

 

On the flip side, I have one right now that is like new, with no wear, and it's a nice operating machine and pulls the hill like any other gear tractor I've had.

I always pull with the variatior in the slow position and run a stiff spring on the tension. I usually run out of power with the wore out 10 hp engine.

I plan on dding another pulley to Tue rear end so the belt will get more tension without having trouble disengaging the transmission.
