I have a Series II D-12. The machine you're describing is the ultimate in D-12's. About the only things it doesn't have that you would get on a new machine are 4WD and a differential lock. It should have fully live PTO and hydraulics and remote hydraulics as standard. Power steering and the multi-range tranny are hard to find. The first gear on the regular 4-spd is probably slow enough for tilling; with the multi-range it should be great. Most mechanical parts are available from AGCO-Allis or aftermarket sources. Sheet metal and the like generally has to be fabricated or salvaged.

The Allis-Chalmers have excellent traction for a 2WD machine. I had a Ford 600 with a loader and the traction was poor, even with a lot of ballast on the rear. The D-12 does better with less ballast.

For mowing you would probably be best with a 5 ft. rotary cutter, maybe 6 ft. if a finish mower.

The machine you describe should easily be worth $5000, maybe more. I paid less for mine, but it doesn't have the PS, multi-range tranny or factory 3-point hitch and wasn't running well at all when I bought it.

This is a very good utility tractor. The 3pt hitch and hi-lo trans give this D12 more value than earlier models.The live pto makes roto-tilling and mowing a breeze. Engine parts are easy to find but sheet metal is tough and pricey. With a loader and attachments a guess would be $5,000-6,500.Check the serial # registry for prices paid for D12's.

Today's Featured Article - Gettin My Old Tractor Home - by Clayton Sweeney. My name is Clayton Sweeney. I am from Southern Maryland in a small town called Lothian. I am 20 and my father and I are the proud owner of a 1954 Allis Chalmers WD-45. When I was 18, I dated a girl in the next county over. Her family are tobacco farmers. It was a cold Thanksgiving evening, and we were going up to her Grandparents house. As we passed one of their barns, I noticed something orange in the corner of my eye in this old shed. It was pretty dark and I asked what it was ... [Read Article]
