I have a Allis 200 that would be great if it had a differential lock. I don't think it was an option? What series did Allis Chalmers start putting them in?

I am not experienced with differential locks other than last winter I removed the axle housing from and ED-40 that had one. I was not impressed with the mechanism. Maybe they are OK but it didn't look like it would stand any abuse. Not that I abuse equipment, just that for long term reliability I would prefer not to have one, or to not use it too hard. I have always just tapped the brake on the spinning wheel and "locked" the differential that way.

Differential lock is usually pretty durable on most tractors if used like its supposed to be used,wouldn't have to be too good to outlast a ED40.

7010's and bigger had a diff lock as standard equipment. Never was available on a 200 or 7000.

The lack of a differential lock was always a criticism of the 200 Allis I had run for a neighbor whom I had worked for. I used to do a fair amount of fall plowing with that tractor. I had grown up with John Deere tractors which had the differential lock feature. I did like that 200 Allis, and I found it to be a very fuel efficient tractor to operate.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
