I'm considering purchasing an Allis Chalmers I-600. Have not yet seen it in person so don't know what year it is (66-68). I wondering what might be a fair price to pay for it.

The owner indicates it is in good condition. Has a front loader with a box blade. Owner indicates no leaks.

What would be other questions to ask to get a better idea of a fair purchase price?

I'm new to buying a tractor.

I've gone ahead and purchased the AC I600 tractor. Reviewing the owners manual it references using SAE 80 transmission fluid and a 20w 20 oil. I've gone to our local Tractor Supply store and they don't carry either. Suspecting they now longer make these oils. What are you using?

I'll be looking at the I-600 Friday afternoon. Had a question hoped you might have some input on. I understand that number of hours on a tractor along do not determine when some type of overhaul is required. But would you have an idea of how many hours would normally start to see major work required on the AC I-600 tractor?

If no major work has ever been done on it before and it is nearly 50 years old, is 2,000 hours a lot or is 10,000 hours a lot or 20,000 hours. Trying to get a gauge on reasonable number of hours versus a lot of hours on a 50 year old tractor. Thanks.

I bought one early last Summer had been sitting in a barn,runs good but 2nd gear is totally gone 1st and 3rd work fine so I usually use 1st when loading anyway.Loader on it and rear PTO no rear hitch gave $500 for it.

Thanks for this information. I've rented and used tractors before but never owned one so I have never paid much attention to how things get connected. So if I may, the unit I'm considering buying has a box blade on it. Does that mean it would allow for a backhoe? Or does require a different configuration/model to add a backhoe?

Would I be correct to presume that if no backhoe is currently attached, then testing the swing is immaterial?

I assume it has the backhoe attachment on it - check the swing function on the hoe...does it have OK power on the swing. If you put one stabilizer down making the machine lean a bit with the hoe stretched out - watch to see if the swing drifts to the lower side...and how quickly it may drift? Check how effective the power steering is preferably with some weight in the front bucket. I used to own one of these. Good little machine but you don't want to start out having to do a lot of upgrading. I don't know what prices are like in your area...where I live 4000 - 6000 dollars would be the range in fair running condition. I would need to be really convinced of good shape to pay any more than 6000. Let us know how you make out.

I missed the part about the rear box blade on the first round...so obviously it doesn't have a hoe.

I've not yet inspected it in person. Trying to become as knowledgeable as possible before meeting with the owner. But appreciate the suggestion.

Can you tell me if your I-400 is a larger or smaller tractor than the I-600? Would you have any thoughts on what is a fair purchase price for an I-600 with a front end loader and rear box blade?

Does it slip out of any gear when accelerating or decelerating? I have an I-400 that will slip out of 2nd gear when decelerating, so check it out.
