AC D-17 Tractor

Recommended Posts

Guest
I have an AC D-17 Series III tractor and I was wondering how practical it is to put a front end loader on the unit? The tractor has wide front and power steering but I have been told that the hydraulics are too slow for a front end loader. Any one know if this is true or not? It there a way to overcome slow hydraulic so I could put a loader on the tractor? Thanks Richard

I use to be an A-C dealer in Wis. D-17seriesIII was made to be a loader-tractor. You wouldn't have any problems with slow hyds. that tractor has enough for the job, just be sure you get a loader with low pressure cylinders. Beside an AGCO try finding a Schwartz loader.

The Series III was built with enhanced hydraulics in mind including a three spool valve. That tractor will handle a loader like nobody's business. Who ever told you it was slow is full of molasses. Steve

I have an early D-17 with an allis loader that has a front mtd. pump I believe it is called a 500 loader what a great tractor loader. I have owned it since 85 I bought it at the auction when the Ag dealer in town sold out he did'nt want to sell green D-As . Cal

Although I am not particularly fond of Allis-Chalmers farm tractors, I would have to agree with all of the above posts. One of the strenghts of the AC farm tractor line was their strong hydraulics, even stronger than Deere! ACs' used a close-center system with exceptionally high pressure. The pressure is so high, that if you would put your finger on a pin-hole leak, the hydraulic oil can enter your body similar to way a hypodermic needle would work. Many farmers have gotton ill this way, so be careful
