The D-21 shouldn't have much trouble with the disc, or field cultivator. As to row crop, it's dependent on row width, and how this particular tractor is equiped with tires. Many of the d-21's came with 24.5 - 32 rear tires, and that could be a problem with narrow rows. If it is equiped with 18.4 - 34's or 38's you will probably need a set of duals to pull your tillage equipment. At any rate these are considered as row crop tractor with the narrower wheels, because the wide front is adjustable on them. If the width of the rear tires is OK, the price sounds fair if it's in reasonably good shape.

I put a set of 24.5x32 tires on a customers D21 for 650 dollars each in the 24.5x32 tire. He likes the tractor and uses it for land leveling.

I've got an ad from Allis Chalmers which was run in June 1966. The ad says that the D21 Sweries II pulled two 15 disks squadron hitched. They als claim a seven bottom
plow, and an 8 row cultivator. It was rated by Allis at
127 hp and tested at Nebraska at 128 pto, and 116 on the
drawbar. If your talkling about a D21 made made in 1963
and 64, it has about 23 hp less. Should still be enough
but not as comfortably.

Regards,

You will need to determine how wheel spacing and tire width
fit with your plans for row spacing. In large farming
operations, it was considered row crop. I think it would be
too big for small operations.

I believe it is a good choice. But you must make the decision.
You should not have a problem if you row spacing is 32" or more.
I do not know the specific wheel spacings that are available. If
the wheel spacing choices include the right one, you should be able to handle something even narrower.

What row spacing are you planning to use and what crops?

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
