Thought I would share a few pictures of some of the nicer machines I've been able to bring home this year.  Most are the direct result of help from my friends in the Simple Tractors club.  A few were shipped, others I had to make the long drive for, but each I considered to be superb, unmolested machines, which is what I've been looking for lately, as they tend to be tougher to find.

Early B-10 from Connecticut.  Completely original, with the exception of the armrests.  Beautiful condition, and didn't even need a bath.  Scarce, 32" deck in B-1 paint.

Late B-10 from Northern MI.  Also original, with early nelson style can muffler. I was able to finally grab a Gill Spiker attachment with this package, and am moving the rest on to another club member.

Broadmoor 717 from Central WI.  Mark helped me snag this cheap, and I had ncie original lights and seat to complete it.

Allis 620 from Eastern Ohio.  My interest in the Powermax machines has grown considerably since checking some out at Phil's place, locally.  I finally had to try one, and this was one I peeked at last year when the price was too high and my interest too low.  1-owner, 593 original hours.  Rear PTO and Airplane Hitch.

7117 from northern IL.  This machine sat unused for quite some time, but in excellent condition.  Took some troubleshooting to get her going, but that helped out the purchase price.  This donated it's early Power Steering to the 919H below...

919H from Northwest WI.  Been looking for an Allis 19 horse twin for a long time, and this one cleaned up really nicely.  My daily driver, currently.

Deutz Allis 917H from central Indiana.  Like a 19 horse RBT, I had been wanting a nice green tractor since way back when Ray repainted his DA916H, and specifically, a black frame twin.  A bath and buffing made a huge transformation on this one.

Nice collection. Was wondering what years are the last four tractor pictures. Never had or ever seen one locally here in my area.

Very nice tractors. All my tractors were basket cases and ready for the scrap heap when I got them.  Took a lot of work to get them in decent operating shape.

Very nice group of A/Cs you have found! Mine never look like that when I find them. :wallbanging:

 

Did you ever get the chance to measure and sketch out the upper part of the (B-1, B-12?) loader for me. I would like to get that fabbed up some day. :thumbs:

The black frame varieties came out in the late 80's...86/87, if I had to guess?  The orange frame type ran 79-86ish.  They are all 7100 series Simplicity built machines.  The green one is my 'newest' among them, a 1990 and I think the last year for Deutz tractors built by Simplicity.

Oh they are still around!  Just happened to come into more Allis' this year.

I can certainly help!  I wasn't sure when you were ready to tackle that, and what exactly is needed.  I have another Allis loader coming this weekend...an L-112 for my HB-112.  I'm pretty stoked  That will make an early trip variety, a Simplicity version, and the Allis hydraulic bucket type.  If you receive L&GT Mag, I wrote an article on the loaders and forklifts in the current issue that you may find interesting.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. I am going to show this to my wife, so she understands that buying 4 tractors in 2 years is not excessive.
