Hello guys, I normally hang around the JD board but I have a question about the 1 piece of Allis Chalmers equipment I own, I dug 3 AC flail forage choppers out of a neighbors grove and saved them from the blue flame, I made one out of the 3 and use it to harvest stalks for my cattle, so the first question is what model is it and what years were they made? It is of course a left hand pulled unit, and a 2nd question is can any one point me in the direction of an operators manual I always try and have one for every piece of equipment I own, any help is greatly apprieciated

The 56f was the only flail chopper that Allis ever made.If I remember right they made 1600 of them.My grandfather had a new one in the 1960's and it worked great.They have more suction than the other brands.When setup right they make a fine cut,Dad even used it to cut alfalfa for the silo.They were putting alfalfa in the silo the day that president Kennedy was shot.Check on E-bay for a manual if you can't find one I could make a copy of mine for you.

The only AC flail chopper with left hand pickup that I know of is the 56F, built beginning around 1960. It was a 36 knife, 6'unit. Had one many years ago..wore it out. I'm trying to find my manual... so long ago, not sure where it is..but I rarely throw things out. That's a nice find three in a bunch..

Thanks alot, that sounds like what I have and I can easly take 2 rows of stalks, for what ever reason the neighbor ran the wheel bearing out of the 2 parts machine so I only am able to use the one but with hubs and spindles I maybe could have a second one, I have never seen any of these flail choppers any where else around here

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
