Question regarding allis chalmers mower heads, I am familiar with New Holland, International etc. Was there any set backs to the Allis Chalmers heads? I have seen pictures and videos. Also what was the knife speed. For instance the new Holland are rated at 1600 strokes per minute the international were at about 2000. Was the allis concept good and worth getting. Help is appreciated--Adam

If you are talking about the later model Twin Wheel Drive models I don't know the exact speed but they'll cut as well or better than any sickle bar ever built.They did have several issues with the bearings in rear of the arms being the worst,all bolts needed to be kept tight as they tended to vibrate loose.I used the different AC Twin Wheel Drive models for years but have now switched to New Holland as parts are easy to come by for the New Holland and not very available for the AC.Also the AC mowers needed to have a very sharp sickle at all times to minimize wear and tear of course that's really true of any sickle bar mower.

The ac heads are grooved and fit into a matching grooved piece on the twin wheel drive. No clue on speed. That are ok mowers but just ok

Today's Featured Article - Upgrading an Oliver Super 55 Electrical System - by Dennis Hawkins. My old Oliver Super 55 has been just sitting and rusting for several years now. I really hate to see a good tractor being treated that way, but not being able to start it without a 30 minute point filing ritual every time contributed to its demise. If it would just start when I turn the key, then I would use it more often. In addition to a bad case of old age, most of the tractor's original electrical system was simply too unreliable to keep. The main focus of this page is to show how I upgr ... [Read Article]
