Hello again. I am still looking at purchasing my first Allis, happens to be a CA. I kinda like it due to the size since it fits on my trailer better than my Farmall H. I have a small wood lot that we intend on builiding on, and just want to know how it would be helping we out over there. The tractor has 12.4x24"s on it now and I have chains to put on it. I just need to to do some light clearing of logs (I would cut them to he length it could handle), but it has a slight incline going from the house site to the road. I know my Farmall has bigger tires and all, but doesnt fit on my trailer all that well (the rear tires rub the sides) and the drive is a bit far for the tractor. Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Why not narrow up the back tires, they are adjustable.

I have them slid all the way in, without flipping the centers around which to me would make it too narrow for what I need it for. It doesn"t help I have 13.6"s on the rear, I have thought about getting some different tires for the back. Right now the sidewalls scrape when I load it.

Thank you all for the advice. I currently also have a Farmall A, which I have had for a long time, and was all I had up until a few years ago when I got the H, but was looking at the Allis B/C/CA due to being centered and not offset like my A. Will have to think about it some more.

The CA, the C, and the B all share the same engine. The CA seems to have a slower 1st gear, than my C or B. Weight the front end, if pulling logs. I hate having to steer with my brakes, and those little Allis's WILL PULL. What a combo of engine, and gearing, it's hard to belive what they will do if you can keep the front end down. I use a 10 gallon propane tank, filled with water, on the front of my B, when pulling hard.

The little CA will do fine, bout like a Farmall A.

While the H would do it better, your reasons are good.

Sometimes, my SH or other high, wide, tractors just won't fit where I need to go, so the A or AC C do the job.
Small or big with tractors, any will do the job, the little one just takes longer.

I've lived here a long time, and watch the giant 8-wheeled

JD monsters working the same fields that I used to see little Fords, Farmalls and JDs working.

Crops look the same..............

I have had both and would prefer the H over the CA. The big drawback of the CA is if you are getting off and on a lot. The H is much easier to get on and off of. Both are good tractors, but I would prefer the H.

Same with me. Had both and getting on and off the little Allis will wear you out.

The H would be best but the CA will surely pull the logs if you have it chained right.

Power wise, they are around the same HP.

I have used an H and an Allis C to pull a firewood wagon and to skid small logs, both will do it but the H had a lot more traction and power. If you have a lot to do I would probably use the H as it will be quicker, but if the convenience of the CA is worth it I would not be afraid of an incline provided it is not really steep.

I have had both and I would take the CA. I still have the CA that my dad bought new. It is very nice to get around with, It has live power take off with the hand clutch. It has a lift system that can easily be made into a 3 point. They have tons of power for their size and traction can be fixed by adding wheel weights. Ours did all the cultivating, half the plowing, pulled hay racks and silage wagons and anything else you ever asked it to do and the motor has never been touched. Great little tractor.
