Hello,

I came a across a Allis Chalmers D-17 with super nice sheet metal, okay tires, new head gasket, starter, tie rod ends, and exhaust. It runs great, the guy wants 2000.00 for the tractor and a trip loader that comes with it. It that a good buy or not?

I'm just looking to pull a 6' finish mower and push snow in the winter. Might be a little big for what I need but sometimes big is cool. Buy or not?

There is a D-17 in the paper here in Wichita Kansas and they want $3700 I don't know the condition, but the one you found sounds like a once in a life time deal. I would buy it and if it is over kill for mowing I would sell it.
With all those attachments you could double the price you payed for it.
Go to eBay and look up a D-17, there are some on there from $1000 to $3500 and up to $4500
I would buy that tractor in a second.
Good luck,
Have a great day

I'm going to buy myself a D-17 tomorrow, I so excited to get it home. Your right, you can't beat 2000.00 with a handful of attachments.

Does it have power steering? Mine had the add on kind,I paid I think about $1700-1900 for mine a couple of decades ago But it had been under a loader and now needs an overhaul now. i plan to try to do it myself next winter if things work out.The D 17 is a great tractor to bale with with the hi/lo.

yes this one has power steering. This tractor is built like a tank. I had a Farmall A and this D-17 does not even compare.

That tractor, in the condition you describe, with the attachments you later mention is a heck of a buy. I dare say you wont find anything better than that for that kind of money. If you seriously want a tractor, buy it now.

i'd grab it at that price. for the use you have for it , overkill would be an understatement. using it on a 6 foot finish mower and a snow blade would be like shooting sparrows with a .357 magnum. we had a D17 on the farm; it proved a very powerful tractor for its dimensional size.

Thats not a buy it is a steal!!!

If you don't take it let me know where you are and I will try and snap it up.

17's are a nice tractor esp for the mower with the two speed power director.

well it sounds like a good buy then, What does turf tires run for something like that?

Also, the guy has a plow, brush hog and back blade that he would throw in for free if i wanted them.

If you don't buy it NOW, let me know where you are at and I will come and get it!! I can't believe he is just throwing everything else in!?!? QUICK before he changes his mind!! Turf tires aren't that cheap, but you might be able to sell the ones on it if they are any good. DO IT! OR let me know where you are at!

It all depends on the shape they are in, (rusted, shedded and paint) and where you are at (prices are HIGH in Midwest low in the East) all depends.
My area (WI) for the bush hog, ($500 and up) 2 bottom plow $100 3 bottom $250 4 bottom $500, 3 point backblade is $350 and up a S/C is $300 and up. The trip loader depends on what model too. $200 and up depending on the shape and model.
You might get some better answers and more interest at the following forum.

This site doesn't have the garbage posts like they do over there, but you never know what you might find out.
