In the 60s and 70s Several farms around here used Allis Chalmer snap coupler tractors to plant tobacco. There were green brackets that bolted to each side of the engine to install 2 to 4 55 gallon drums of water for the transplanter. I have been looking for a photo, have not found one. I think I have a photo of 1 55 gallon drum on a Farmall... the AC we used had 2 of these.

The story I was going to post it with... The job no one wanted was to turn the Briggs-Stratton pump off, the spark plug would nip you even using a stick to turn it off. One time I got distracted with a new insect and my father got his shirt wet. (94* outside, I saw no problem with anyone getting wet)
The next round, my job was to fill the tanks. I had to use two pieces of firewood to stand on to get the lids open. Everything went OK with the first. With the second, I leaned up on tiptoe to see how full it was. The wood tipped over, I bumped my head on the barrel and the hose got away from me. It whipped around and drenched my father! We all had a good laugh after the pump was turned off and got back to work.

just a thought outside the box here,
contact the company, Holland or Mechanical

they were together many years ago, but as I understand the owners got crossways over the water delivery system, so they separated.

both brands are very good setters.

however, they might have pictures, booklets, sales brochures of tank holders made for different tractors over the years.

first we had a one row Holland with the tank hanging off the front end of a TO-35 fergy. later we had a two row Holland with a tank on each side of the little fergy, both units had different tank racks, but they were factory made for that type tractor.

I still have a one row mechanical with the tank support bracket attached to the frame of the setter. this unit is much easier to hookup and work with.

worth a try, who knows you might hit pay dirt.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained

Didn't know until now there was ever any factory made ones. Dad carried a 55 on each side of a model C back in the 60s on angle iron carriers copied from the neighbors set up. One carried liquid fertilizer and the other was for banded weed killer. That C had a load when the planter and drums were both full. Dont remember ever seeing a picture of it.

Back when my father bought his IH 140, he ordered a logging drawbar for it. The salesman could not locate one - I have never seen another one since.

Their implement assembler manufactured one in his spare time by expanding the photo to get the pattern. Bolted right up and we used it for 30 years off and on. Will post a pic later.

When you cant find it, you did what you could.

We had a wooden platform Dad made from old bridge planks that sat on the pin hitch drawbar bail and under the axles of the CA. He put 2 55 gallon drums on it and had an 8 row fold up boom mounted on the front cultivator bracket.It made great spraying rig for corn. We used the platform to haul milk cans full of water to the hogs in the field and to the house for wash day and Saturday night baths.

Today's Featured Article - Sunday Drives - by Cowboy. Summer was finally upon us here in Northern Maine.

I have been restoring old Farm Tractors for the past 6 years, and have found it easier and less expensive to hit all the auctions and purchase whole tractors for parts needed.
