My dad owned and used a AC tractor in the 1930's to 1950. It had lugs, painted green. I do not know the model year. In a tactor book I found one that kinda looks like it and it was a 1930 Allis-Chalmers U. It was orange. My dad's was green. I remember the lugs being different than this picture.
My dad had threashed for 50 falls, starting as a water boy on his uncles steam engine. Dad had his own treashing run for many years. I would love a picture to use in stories of his threashing.

I"m sure if it was an Allis Chalmers and it was green and from the late 20"s, then it was a 20-35. The one pictured on the site link below has had all the lugs taken off.

Yes, the 20-35 seems to be just about right. The front wheels seem a little too large and wide set, however I didn't see it after 1950 when it was sold at a farm sale as my dad was dying of cancer. I don't know who purchased it. That tractor and the threshing machine was so much apart of my dad and I don't have a picture of either. Thanks.

This is off the wall perhaps, but one thing we all overlook nowdays is the time frame. Those were hard times and no money so they did what they had to. Those lugs could have been from any make tractor, let alone color.

Scroll down to the picture of the 20-35. Did it look anything like that?

Looking at the enlargead picture of Hubbard, not that one. Art Wegner in Wisconsin Dells with the Avery has some memories as Dad talked about his Avery, but before my memory. Ralph Blum in Wisconsin, Dad"s was rather similar to this, the front wheels aren"t right, Dad"s tractor had smaller ones. The fender was very much like this and the sides I remember to be more covered.

Im not much of an authority on AC, but weren't some very early Rumleys dark green? Maybe thats what it was?

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
