Got lucky enough to get a hold of a 68' B112 with the L12/L112 Loader this weekend. (forgive me, but I dont know which is the correct name for the loader attachment. I have seen it called an L112 Loader and a L12 Loader. Not really sure what the correct name is, or if they are the same or in fact two different ones, hopefully someone here will know) 

 

Started to go over the machine and it def needs a few new parts and some fixes, and a new seat or reupholstered black and white seat I should say. Im going to repaint it in the spring.  but man this is a cool machine. I cant wait to put it to work this winter. This along with my other B112 with the 42" snow thrower should prove to be quite the team this winter. and hopefully every winter for the next 30 years! 

 

I would appreciate any feedback on this machine and any info any of you may have. 

 

I know its missing the side panel on the left side of the machine. the piece that covers the area behind the manual lift bar. if anyone has one for sale, please let me know. any original seats for sale at a reasonable price, please let me know as well.

Congrats! An exciting time for you! They are nice little loaders, and very handy to have. I remember seeing her on Craigs and its great to see it find a good home.

The L112 loader has a longer subframe for variable and hydro tranny tractors, so that would be the appropriate model # for yours.

Enjoy!

Very nice! Loaders are just so handy to have around. Whenever something heavy needs to be moved, you have a big yellow helper to make the job easier.

Your new tractor will come in handy if you ever get wet snow or an ice storm that the blower can't handle :thumbs:

Check our Manuals Section for the L12 manual, I think that I saw it there. Nice machine. Good Luck, Rick

 

Try: http://gardentractor...ers-parts-list/

for the tractor but I couldn't find the loader. I recall that it was not where I would expect it.

Nice.I see it has the counter weight box with it, that's a good thing. Not sure how hard it will be to steer, maybe you'll want to try and add power steering eventually. Still good find ,I'am sure you'll enjoy it, once you have a small tractor with a loader around you'll be wondering how you did stuff without one.

Definitely add the thrust bearings to your spindles...I don't feel much difference when that is done, for regular GT use, but for a loader, it's nite and day.  Keep that front end tight and lubed.  I've even rebuilt a couple of my front ends, for loaders use, and installed bushings to eliminate permanent wear and introduce some lube.  Keep that tire pressure up, or even go to a rib tire for moving heavy loads.  I did 8 yards of gravel with mine last fall, and had a blast.  Various other soil moving chores became fun, and it was a godsend for cleaning up shingles when I redid my roof.  Most of it's use is lifting and moving stuff though.  I can't remember the last time my back hurt from lugging around a bulky attachment, and I redid my entire landscape without touching a shovel.  The honeymoon with an FEL lasts a long, long time!   :thumbs:

Nice looking loader, congrats! I find a ton of uses for my Cub 147 loader around the place. I'm painting my front wheels and putting my new/old tires on my Allis Big 10 and I found these dust caps on ebay. They measure 1.787 where they press into the hub. The seller only had one set, but I believe that these are what you need.

Nice looking 112's.

I just picked one up this morning and am here searching for information on them.

Mine is blue in color and the paint looks like it is original.  Did these come in blue? 

 

I see the Allis Chalmers logo on the FEL lift arm but it looks nearly identical to the Workhorse Model 10 FEL I have on my Workhorse tractor.  I would love to see a pic of how the hydraulic pump mounts to the tractor.  I may want to swap the FEL to this tractor at some point or to the 416H I picked up last month.

Anyone have an idea if the spindles on this are the same size as the earlier Landlord series?  I have two 101's and a 2010 that I bought the parts to do the "poor man's power steering" upgrade on them and would like to do the same to the HB112.

 

Nice tractors.
