Allis Chalmers B1 tractor

Recommended Posts

Hi, There is a guy that is selling and 1963 AC B1 tractor. It has a rototiller, front counter weight, plow blade, and two extra rims and tires for a dual wheel conversion for extras. The tractor has been siting in his shed for 25 years and he's the original owner. It would need a fuel and carb clean but that's normal. Could someone please tell me the value of it. It would be really appraised.

it's always hard to say what something is worth. i wouldn't sell my B-1 for a penny less than $300. i have a home made weight for sale for $35 and a tiller w/o the bolos for $75. my extra plow i am asking $75 and i have some rims for $5 each. that said; a not running tractor i would pay $100 to $150 at the most and i would haggle like heck over the rest. fwiw; if i still lived in NH, and therefore in driving distance to you, i'd be on my way to try to beat you to it.

Sounds like a neat package...if it all had nice steel and was machanically sound (considering engine a non-runner, but turning over), I would give decent money for a B-1. Probably up to $350 for what you have listed. That being said, there are LOTS of things that would start dropping $25 here, $50 there for me. For the average B-1 I've seen, I would have a hard time giving $100 for it, non-running. Those attachments tend to be beat...there's another $100-150. The counter weight might be the best part of the deal. Those get good money. The tiller MIGHT be worth $150+, but most I've seen are awfully nasty. If he actually has the dual wheel adapters, you had better already be on the road! ;) Some of those old timers think their machine is gold, and that's up to you to agree with them or walk ^ I got a guy up the road with a beat-to-heck B-1 who wouldn't part with it for any sum.

Thanks Talntedmrgreen are those dual wheel adaptors worth good money. and if it had the wheel adaptors would it make the tractor worth 350 cause thats what the old timer wants for it.

I have sold the tiller only without the PTO for $225 and have seen the wheel adaptors go for his asking price. Sounds like a more than fair deal to me with the extras that are included.

I would pay a little more for one if it had the original model 19 engine. Most of the B-1's I've seen have been repowered with the 8hp briggs (still a good engine, they're just not original).

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
