I bought a Allis Chalmers B-12 with a loader...not AC but looks ok.:D:D Drove 6 hours there and back to pick up this gem,and a tank of gas in my truck. The tractor has a few problems to fix first.;) 1Back wheel & hub wants to come of the axle shaft.[:0] 2The back of the loader frame needs to made longer.[:0] Karl [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/karl_brandt/Hpim0012a.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/karl_brandt/Hpim0003.jpg[/img]

Karl, Good score! It looks like its in pretty good shape. It's hard to tell from these angles, but that looks like it may be a Henry loader, who made the L-10/L-12 loaders for Allis. It certainly doesn't look like a Johnson Workhorse, or a Quikway. Where's the hydraulic reservoir?

Looks good and your right on extending the mounting bracket.It should probably be tied back to the rear hitch somewhere.That will keep it from bustin out a BGB.I don't use mine a lot but it's nice to have when you do need it.

Looks like there is some kind of reinforcement plate/band around the frame where it joins the BGB. I wonder if that was done before or after a possible frame problem.

Hard to tell, Roy, but that's certainly the stress point. It breaks that "butt plate" that the BGB bolts onto right out of the front frame... That one still doesn't connect to the rear frame rails, it appears, so it wouldn't "bridge" those four bolts in the BGB that hold the tractor together. My 2012 has been repaired there, and additional reinforcements added to bridge the BGB.

The loader is made by Kuchyt metal works in Fort Erie,Ontario,Canada. I paid $1500 canadian for the tractor and loader & mower deck.^ The hydraulic reservoir is under the control valve,right side of tractor.

What a deal! It looks like it is in very good shape. Those are certainly some large, double-action lift rams on it. How does the pump drive? Direct coupling, or....

Looks like it will be a real workhorse after you get it patched up like you want. Kent is right. Those hydraulic cylinder look huge.

I love the way it looks, Karl. Good deal. Lots of potential there for hard work. The fork bucked with the scoop on it makes it look like it was used on a farm as a poop scooper at one time. You take the scoop off and it loads manure. That is probably why the cylinders are so large. It can take a lot to break away a load of that stuff with straw mixed in. That tractor was intended for work!

The pump drives off the engine's crankshaft,has a small drive shaft. I also bought myself a new digital camera,I used the new camera to take these pictures of my new toy. Karl [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/attach/karl_brandt/Hpim0001a.jpg[/img]

Boy, they built that one "industrial strength" all the way. I'm really impressed. Let us know how much it'll lift, so we can compare it to the Simp/AC ones. BTW, when you start thinking about modifying your loader frame, you may want to look at how the Simp/AC ones mounted.
