Cut grass for the first time since 1996

Recommended Posts

Cut grass for the first time since 1996, with an Allis Chalmers, that is. After all my troubles getting My B-10 to run, today I bolted in a "new" ( around 67-68) engine, hooked up all the wires and hoses, and afer some carb adjustment, cut the grass with the B-10. To me this is a major acheivement, and one I often doubted would ever come. For those of you who have been answering my questions this past year, Thank you. of course I'm sure to have more....Like what do you do when the parts tractor actually runs, too!!!!

Good going Greg, if your like me one will do the yard work and on will do the heavy work [towing, grader, plow]. A good ratio seems to be about one tractor for every two tools. Got too many tractors, Then get more tools! Too many tools? You got it! Its tractor time, it seams to be a cyle thats easy to catch. Good luck.

Thanks for the congrats.... Wife wasn't really hot on the idea of another parts tractor....She's been real supportive so far...but she has her limits.... For the first time in a while I wish it would rain so I can cut again......Here in north Georgia it hasn't rained since August.

How about setting the deck as high as it will go and cut your grass. Then in a few days lower the deck 1/2 inch and cut it again. You can keep on like this until you hit dirt or it rains and get a whole bunch of tractor time in!!! I hate rub it in, but we have been getting quite a bit of rain in MN lately, so once a week hasn't been enough to keep on top of the yard. (Just like spring time cutting) Usually this time of year the grass slows down - not this year!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
