Recommended Posts

I have an Allis Chalmers 314 with manual lift. Can anyone tell me if it would be possible to retrofit and electric lift on this tractor? If so, where I might find one and the cost? Thanks for any help!

Bruce, as far I know the electric lift kit is no longer available. You can buy the whole kit via parts. But it is very expensive. I need the electric motor only for mine, but GULP! list price is $198. Used ones will be hard to find as they were not very durable.
Good Luck.

Bruce, If the 314 uses basically the same frame as the 112 and 212 then you should be able to adapted the older hydraulic lift. Much better system than the electric. I don't know anything about a 314 so I don't know how difficult it would be. Tim

Tim and Bruce,
The 314 uses an entirely different frame (built by Outdoor Products and not Simplicity). The hydraulic lift system Tim is talking about would not easily fit, but if there is a desire there is usually a way.
Good Luck, MS

        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
