    Cool! I almost bought a lil' B Allis like that. I wanted to put a belly mower on it, thought it would be just the perfect size.

    The particular one I looked at had some anti freeze in the oil though, and I decided to pass on it, but a guy I knew decide he wanted it.

    He fixed it all up and gave it a new AC orange paint job, said it (the anti freeze) was just a rusted out plug in the head and was a relatively cheap fix. He just loves that little tractor.:mad::eek:

    Seemed like he painted it a brighter orange than the tractors in your pic though? Maybe its just the pics??:beatsme

    Any more Allis pics? :drinkup

    These other B pics look like the same bright orange I was thinking. I wonder what the B was originally marketed for? Is it maybe considered an orchard tractor?

    That one there sure looks nice!!

    Originally the B would have been a culivator tractor. When I was on the farm as a kid we had a C which was just a narrow front end B. Dad's fields were kinda hilly and the tractor didn't have enough power or the right gearing for hay raking so we kept the Farmall M on the rake. But the C was handy for light work like fixing fense and stuff. I do remember that it had a one bottow plow that mounted on the rear for like plowing gardens and stuff. We never used it, just kinda came with it.

    Sad to say that the B model is probably worth as much as the '77 models put together. Nice clean tractors.

    Ohh, it ain't quite worth that much, both the big ones are in real good shape, except the 7580 has a whole bunch of annoying but harmless things go wrong. In 31 hours, the starter push switch went, the clutch safety switch had a bad connection was bad and the connection on the PTO safety switch was bad. Couldn't figure that one out until I found out it had a PTO safety switch. The heater valve leaks internally and the A-C quit. There's a lot of other things too Harmless but annoying as heck. The 7060 has been real good tractor and rarely does something go wrong.
