Did Allis make 2-row front gang cultivators with power lift or only manual lift for the WD45?

Thanks, folks. I was confused because of the mechanical lift arms on the front gangs. I now understand that they were just for setting depth.

Nate, those cultivators also used what was called a "delayed lift". At the end of the row the pump's adjusting screws were adjusted accoring to the decal on the battery box for delayed action, and the front would lift first, then the rear. Lowering was done the reverse, with the lever moved down enough to drop the front, then the rest of the way when the rear got to the row. Made for nicely plowed middles right on out to the turnrow. God Bless.

They made them and I own a set that I'm trying to sell. Uses one cylinder off the lift arms to raise the front gangs and the other cylinder to lift the tire scratcher. They do have a set of hand operated levers to set the depth of the gangs, but all the end of row lifting is done with hydraulics. E-mail me if you are interested. Also have a 2 row snap coupler cultivator that I'd sell. I'm in SE Iowa.

Would the two row Snap Coupler cultivator be of the 500 Series available around 1960? I have the 500 Series manual, and it only shows rear cultivators, 2 and 4 row.

I'm not real sure. Bought it off of eBay last year and have never been able to tell what model it is. I'd guess it to be in the 60's era. Not built for the WD line, but fits just fine. I'd guess it to have been built for the smaller D series.

Power lift is the term that describes the mechanical lift on the WC/RC tractor. WD and WD45 tractors had hydraulic lift. The adjustment levers on the WD/WD45 tractors are as you describe- they were for depth adjustment, not for lifting the cultivator. The rear gangs, raised by the lift arms, wiped out the tracks left by the rear wheels, so all ground behind the tractor was freshly tilled.

AC made two and four row cultivators for the WD and WD45. They were made for hydraulic lift. One lift cylinder was turned forward to raise the front gangs, and the other operated the rear lift arms.

All of the cultivators on WD and WD45 that I have seen had hydraulic lifts.
