My two roller is a model F , I would have to dig out all my litature to be sure, but i thought the L was one of the last series, I've senn them with hoods, grille and a square seat,
The one that got them in trouble with cat was a bigger tractor, about half way between a cat 10 and 15, I've only ever seen two

This is a photo of my manual and you can see why I'm confused about the model designation.
This is defiantly relating to this style crawler and not the newer style with the hood.
This manual is for a 1949 Agricat model-C but it also has a parts list for the longer two roller crawler and as you can see here it list it as a "L-model"

Right underneath where it says "parts - L model long track tractor" it says : "When ordering parts for the L model tractor, use C model parts list with the exception of parts listed below".

I've long ago excepted the fact that the manuals and other printed information on old tractors isn't always accurate.
The printed material on my Bolens Ridemasters is often confusing and even contradicts it self.

Cool little crawler. How high does the loader go off the the ground. I like the rippers, bet they help a lot for loosening the soil. Have fun with it.


Neat little machine!! That will make an interesting project. The only thing I see as questionable is getting on an off the machine? going over the loader to get to the seat looks like an easy way to slip and bark something.


YES. You are completely correct. Not sure what else to say about that LOL

Wow Mike , your serial number has me scatching my head, mine starts with "F" , I figured since that was the model, then after my numbers my serial ends with LLS, I figured those to be option codes for parts, like mine had a hi loader ,long frame, ripper and street cleats. I know yours is a 2 roller so it can't be a C , and you already said it has a L on it
If the engine looks original, can you tell from engine code what year it might be, love to hear from the other agri-cat guys, what thier numbers say

The engine looks original. The tag is missing. Will look for a stamp
Im guessing the H is for hydraulics. I was told it was model L didnt see it anywhere on it

The loader that was on mine, had the pivots way over the drivers head to the rear ,like a skid loader. I don't have too many picture of before I rebuilt mine to show and they are on polaroids. I sold the loader off of mine , didn't need it because I made mine into a halfscale D2 Caterpillar

Sorry about that Mike.
I guess these are a model-F ( not model-L like it shows in my manual ).


Here are some photos of two different Agricats with the high lift loader ( not mine ).

I can do that once I get some replacement pads. Rubber looks expensive (atleast 2") may have to try wood

I wish i had the rippers and powered bucket. here mine. cant find any serial numbers on it anywhere, but from what i have founds its a model F. restored it this past year and have been using the crap out of it. Best part about these things is that most parts are available from mcmaster.
