Allis 716H

Recommended Posts

When I was at the local Farm/hardware store I walked past their row of used tractors (as always). They have a 716H stuck in the row of drug store and box store tractors. The wheels in my head started turning, maybe I should buy this to replace my Cub Cadet 1440(It came with the house, honest. It is underpowered and its hydro seems to be going away.) What are the things I should check? All my other tractors are gear drive not hydro. It is not all rusted, and it has a deck mounted. It does not have the rear lift assembly, but all the rest of the brackets seem to be there, they look like the ones on the B-10. Does this tractor use a rod for the lift like the B series, or a cable? The biggest question is price? It is a late 700 series, what is a fair asking price for this unit. I need some backround before I start talking price with them. Thanks, Greg

I paid $400 Canadian for one of mine and it was in OK shape. It was well weathered, since it had to have sat outside most of its life. But it ran like a charm! I also bought a parts 716H for $300 and it had a bad hydro and engine and the deck was rusted out. William Jordan

I've been very happy with the 716H I have (photo's at http://www.wheatfarm.com/actractor/index.html). Mine is due for a bevel box rebuilt, but otherwise it's an awesome machine. Paid $750 for it with the mower deck and rear tiller.[A href='http://www.wheatfarm.com']http://www.wheatfarm.com[/a]

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
