Hi Tom, We had an Allis WC on our Ohio dairy farm for many years. I'm not sure where Grandpa bought it, but it had a front end loader, trip bucket. We used it until the mid 80's when younger brother bought a new Case skid steer loader. The WC had the second shift lever, in the up position was direct range. There was a center position, neutral with the pto operational, and moving the lever to the down position gave a low range of 4 gears. (about 2/3 speed of direct gears). This tractor DEFINITELY had 8 forward and 2 reverse gears! I wanted to pull the WC in the antique classes, but Dad said we needed it on the loader. (We did). AC pullers know about this additional gear box, it's desirable to find.

That sounds like a Sherman Hi-Lo trans. that mounted just in front of the factory tranny. I just bought a WC from Larry Swinson that had one. It had a hand clutch also. It is a nice piece of equipment, did not need it so Larry kept it.

I agree with Noly- very common on later WC, and for the purposes he stated. WC never had a hi-lo available, but there was one company that made an add-on clutch assembly that fit in that torque tube area, with a long handle coming out the right side, similar to the hand clutch on the WD. It let the pto run while stopping the rear wheels. Neighbors unit was the only one I've ever seen.

Tom it probably is a rear end disconnect. it disengages the rearend, so the cultivator lift will work when the tractor is stationary. also lets the pto run while wheels are stopped.

Today's Featured Article - A Towny Goes Plowing - by Anthony West (UK). I live in an area renowned for its rural beauty. Small fields with hedgerows and trees are common place, as are small hamlets with village greens and the odd duck pond complete with swans. The center of any village once the shop is closed is the old tavern. Rustic places with cheerful names like "The Griffin" "Red Lion" or "The Plough and Harrow" are found dotted around the country lanes all over the place. The warm glow of yellowish light can be seen for quite some distance at dusk, and ... [Read Article]
