I MARKET GARDEN 5-7 ACRES OF POTATOES AND GARLIC AND NEED A FAIRLY COMPACT TRACTOR FOR CULTIVATION AND HILLING. I HAVE HEARD THE G HIGHLY PRAISED, BUT G'S SEEM OVERPRICED AND LIMITED IN WHAT THEY CAN DO. ARE THEY REALLY GREAT FOR MY PURPOSES, OR ARE THERE OTHER OLD ALLIS TRACTORS WHICH WOULD BE CHEAPER TO BUY AND STILL DO PRECISE MID-MOUNT CULTIVATION WHILE OFFERING MORE FLEXIBILITY?(PTO, HYDRAULICS, POSSIBLY 3PH CONVERSION, ETC.) I ALREADY HAVE A GOOD 40HP TRACTOR, SO I DON'T NEED A POWERFUL MACHINE, JUST A USEFUL COMPACT ONE FOR MARKET ROW-CROPPING. ANY SUGGESTIONS APPRECIATED!

Mike, What a G does best is to be restored and sit and look good. It is a good, very light weight (many were used in our area on boggy muck land for celery and vegetable production), and easy to drive machine. However the Continential, 62cu in., engine is also a light weight. With only two crankshaft mains, one on each end, they are prone to breakage. Engine parts getting hard to find.

Mike, unless the cultivators are in the ground, the thing the G is good for is pulling the front wheels off the ground. They also get kind of dusty depending on the conditions you use them in...

A CA with the AC combined front/rear mount cultivators makes a very good cultivator tractor and offers advantages over the B/C, particularly another gear.

A "B" would be another possibility and perhaps a little less costly, but the visibility would not be quite as good for real close cultivation. Either would work well, with the flexiblity edge going to the "B". Good luck. TED
