This is one of my favorite work tractors. It is an Allis Chalmers B-12 that has the hydraulic lift. When I got it the bevel gear box was shot and the spark plug hole was stripped out. I tore into it and got her up and running again. It is one of my tractors that actually has to work around here. I have a belly blade for it and when I have to grade my steep gravel drive way this is the one I use.

It looks like a very capable tractor to have for working! That mid-mount blade has to be really handy for you.

I'm restoring a big ten now that I plan on putting a hydro lift on.

Mike that looks like a handy work horse. Does it have down pressure for the blade?

Murphy, No it doesn't have down pressure but with these tractors which are nicknamed " foot draggers " because of no running boards you can put your feet down on the top edge of the blade and add weight that way. Simplicity even made a set of stirrups to put on the top of the blade to help you keep you feet on them.

That B-10 is gorgeous. I have an early B-10 as well, but it has all the PTO pulleys and mounting points. That one seems to be missing a few.
