As many times as questions about Traction Booster are posted, perhaps YT could place an article describing it under the (Home Page) Allis Chalmers heading/Information. A treatise from Allis' own manuals or by a qualfied person would surely help the new buyer/novice as well as the "seasoned" user. Gatz

OK, you started it.

I have seen the term "DRAFT" on a Massey Ferguson 285 we used to have and my father has recently restored a CA. So WHAT IS TRACTION BOOST? I understand that it used the weight of the impliment to give you traction but how is this different from a regular 3 point lift system? What did that DRAFT lever do (the Massey had two levers)? As far as I could tell it simply lifted the 3 point.

Thanks for the education if you would be so kind.

Traction Booster is the weight transfer system developed by AC, similar to the Ferguson system, and others since. It senses excessive load on MOUNTED implements, and slightly raises the lift arms, so weight of the implement, and it's load, (like weight of the dirt being turned by the plow) is transferred to the rear wheels of the tractor. On a WD, etc., there is a mechanical linkage between the coil spring inside the hitch assembly and the hydraulic pump, which 'tells' the pump to apply upward pressure, which pulls down on the drive wheels. On a non-sensing system, the same effect is obtained by raising the mounted plow when you notice the wheels are slipping and you are getting stuck in the mud. Weight-transfer does it automatically.

Traction Booster is draft control . Even the old fords had it. Little lever under the seat. fords used the top link instead of the under the bottom hitch point on the Allis for control.
