It's a cutie pie, and stands out in the shop, that's for sure.  My oldest (two and a half years) runs to it each day and climbs aboard, calling it 'new tractor'.  I need to teach him 'Amigo'.  He'd have fun calling everyone that name...

I was away camping for the weekend and fell into a beat up old Allis B10. I know a local fella wanti one and this had new AGs, hydrolift, a fresh 16 horse AND....a sear moldboard with some 3point parts.

I stuck the arms on the Amigo and it seems to handle the litte plow well! I think this is an 8"...perfect for my little helper.

Had one of my boys out to supervise as well!

That is a nice tractor Josh, never really paid any attention before but I see it sure would be something to watch for, have not seen any here in MN. Were there many built and where were they the most popular?

I'm only as good as the information gleaned, mostly by Mr Davis, and the stories shared here and elsewhere.  What I've read (and what I can recall), is that there were around 50 Amigo's currently accounted for, of various models, and that production is thought to have been under 2000 total units.

 

Like many of the reviews/feedback I have read when searching online, I'm amazed by the build quality and design.  This is a spectacular garden tractor...it's much heavier than it looks in photos, and it drives like a dream.  The transmission setup is nothing short of amazing.  My wife even loves it!

The ONLY think that I can come up with for criticism, is that you can't start it from the seat (though electric start was an option and mine has everything for it except the starter/generator and switch).  I like pull starts, but electric would make it more user friendly (or a rope I could reach from the seat)
