I have a chance to buy a '65 606 from my uncle. It has been sitting uncovered for about 15 years, the motor is free, but I think it needs a clutch. the sheetmetal is slightly rusty. It has a new rear tire. It doesn't have a 3pt. hitch. Any thoughts or opinions of this tractor?

My father has had one of these for 20+ years.I spent alot of time on it when I was at home.Was allways a good reliable tractor.His had a TA which gave it good speed range for most jobs.Also has far more power than it's tires could handle,seemed a bit traction limited in some respects. The 6 cylinder engines allways seemed to run much better than the 4's. His was equiped with a Westendorf loader which was very nice,although the hydraulics allways seemed a bit slow,however they were alsos very control-able which was nice for a loader. Value wise,I'm not sure.They are apparently somewhat rare(at least in Iowa) as his is the only one I've ever seen.I know he had a heck of a time finding sheet metal after it had a run-in with a tornado.The parts seem to be fairly easy to get however as most seem to be common with the 460/560. If your looking for a project and something that you could use when your done,go for it.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
