Been looking for a cheaper sub compact, which is quite difficult to do in my area(the cheaper part), but I found a super clean older Deutz Allis 5215, which is a rebadged Hinomoto.  Runs excellent, paint is original and shiny other than the mower deck, has a 60" mid mount, HST transmission with 3 speed ranges, and mid and rear pto.  I had been mowing with a JD 318(for sale now) and I was supprised that the Deutz fits around the suburban yards almost as easily as the JD did.   I plan to eventually replace the rear turf tires with ag bar style.  She is only 2wd but with diff lock I should be fine.  We hope to move to the country in a few years, so I have time to get the bugs out of the old girl(been sitting for over 6 years).  So far I replaced the rad cap(wouldnt hold pressure).  A full fluid and filter change is coming when the next pay day arrives.    Mike

Yeah - thanks for the pics.  I've got some tractor envy of you guys with your Deutz-Allises.

 

I'm going to need a bigger lot so I can get one.

That's a nice tractor.  How many hours on it?  It looks well cared for.

I had a Kubota with a 60" deck I used to mow with several times.  Liked it OK but for good mowing and maneuverability I go back to my JD F525 front deck with the 10" left offset.  I has a 48" deck and can mow the same area, do a better job with the JD than I could with the Kubota.  Kubota is gone and the JD is still here.  Not the smoothest riding being 3 wheeled but not on it that much to bother any.  Not a JD fan but this is my "GO TO" mower.

They are nice tractors, similar in size to my Simplicity 4041 Pow'rmax, a nice size for around a small acreage. I just sold mine, not sure why yet.

Nice looking tractor. I would love to have one of those but being on a small subdivision lot I doubt it would work. My CC with 42'' deck is about the max size I can use. Was that a Clist find?

Yes she was a Clist find, only about 30 min from my place.  Anything else, such as Kubota or Yanmar was atleast $1000 more if it had a mower with it.  She has just over 1600 hours on her.  For now we are in a small subdivision, where I actualy mow 2 yards for extra pocket money, and I have used the DA to do just that.  I had thier trees trimmed up so I wasnt hitting my head on the 318 and this one doesn't really sit much higher, the ROPS only brushes a couple trees and no issues with the stack.  Much easier on fuel than the fuel hungry Onan in the 318.   If someone took the old Powermax series of Simplicity/Allis tractors and put a small diesel in them, that would be perfect.  Nothing wrong with the CCKA Onan engine, but they love thier fuel!   This one was shed kept and for now I keep it in my garage.  I am planning to build a lean to against my fence to keep it under.  Only need to repaint the frame, front axle and engine in DA gun metal blue.   Mike

I'm not a John Deere fan myself, but I got a F510 for practically nothing, and then I found the snowblower for it as well.  It is so fun to cut with that thing and it does such a good job I don't think I'll ever get rid of it.  It's perfect for getting around the tight spots and around trees.  The 54" deck on my Massey Ferguson 1855 is great for the wide open spaces in the yard, but the F510 is the most fun to cut with.  It's like driving a 3 wheel forklift.
