Have always liked the looks of this generation Allis, but how are they for a dependable tractor. Any stay away froms or watch out for's?? Also, please shares all the good things about them. I have, HAVE to buy a tractor in the next 2 months and am leaning towards this or a similar model, I am an IH man but I can find a comparable IH in a comparable price range.

Three things to look for, torque limiter, torque limiter and torque limiter if bad it will require a split someone other than me can tell you how to test for that because last time I did that I got chastised even though I quoted it from the book. The 7030 has a turboed 426 set at the low end of its hp range the big thing to look for is pump tampering because of that reason. The 7020 is a tubocharged intercooled 301 running at its max.

The 7000 series is not a bad tractor for the price--but look for a 7010/7020 because they are much better on fuel than the 7030/40/45/50/60, and not a whole lot different horsepower wise--maybe a gear or 2 slower but half the fuel useage.

Got one in 1979, at 2400 hrs it had scuffed a piston and the fella traded it. 8300hrs now and other than some blowby and several sets of hydraulic control cables no more problems. Cheap horsepower compared to JD, and depends on nearness of AGCO dealer.

Today's Featured Article - Choosin, Mounting and Using a Bush Hog Type Mower - by Francis Robinson. Looking around at my new neighbors, most of whom are city raised and have recently acquired their first mini-farms of five to fifteen acres and also from reading questions ask at various discussion sites on the web it is frighteningly apparent that a great many guys (and a few gals) are learning by trial and error and mostly error how to use a very dangerous piece of farm equipment. It is also very apparent that these folks are getting a lot of very poor and often very dangerous advice fro ... [Read Article]
