    F-20 fiat allis

    Thinking of buying a fairly late model Fat Allis, a F20. Owner says it' been sitting in a barn for 20 years, only has 2K hours on her and he put in some fresh diesel and she runs fine. Has a cab, looks pretty good from the pic. Any idea what it might be worth?

    That's what I was told, was used only on a farm making, loading topsoil, says the undercarriage is at 95%.

    Bigger machine. 8.5" pitch rails may be a good buy but will be heavy and a tad bit awkward as a 977 Cat. Loader series is a FL20, dozers FD20. Definite Fiat not Fiat Allis as no Allis in it.

    FL20 yes, forgot the L, but it definitely says Fiat Allis on her.

    Yes to agreeing with sitting but she was stored inside, will look her over real good. This is what I've been waiting to hear, thanks very much FieldMechanic

    Be prepared to start replacing a lot of seals once you start using it.

    Yes the label will be FA but the machine is all Fiat at that stage. Will have a Iveco engine, Fiat design trans and hydraulics. Rails running gear and such will all be Fiat based. Allis died in the mid 80's, FA was a label from then on only. Fiat Hitachi and Fiat Kobelco came next but sold the same machines rebranded and identified by new series numbers.

    Dust control is important.

    Good to know. AC was a good company, lots of similarities to Studebaker, ahead of their times with lots of cool stuff although my AC I600 TLB was the biggest POS under the sun. Missed out this Summer on a FREE HD14 dozer, couldn't find a rigger to haul it for me, that really sucked.
