Allis Chalmers 710

Recommended Posts

I just recently acquired an Allis Chalmers 710. I don't know much about these, I don't know if it's a late series or an early series. It is a 3 speed. I also am wanting to restore it. Are there any good sites for decals? Also what is supposed to be painted the correct colors? I know the body is Allis Chalmers orange, my deck is white. Is that correct?

Kubota orange to my eyes is exactly the same color as the factory orange on those A/C's. TSC and Rural King both carry that color in the Majic brand. I've had good results with it...The Allis Chalmers orange is actually a different color than what they used on the garden tractors...it is less red.

I have also had good luck with maple hunter.

Looks like a good project for you and the OLD guy on the tractor.

hahaha thanks! I'm pretty excited about it! I do youth ministry and this is one of the kids in my youth group, and he hasn't driven anything this old before. I thought that was cool.

That would be an early series and yes the deck should be white , not a real bright white, more of a canvass or off white. welcome to the club

Can you explain more on what the difference is between an early series and a late series? Thanks, I'm glad to be a part of the club!

the easiest way is the headlight configuration, bucket or pod system on the early models, they are built in to the grill on the later models. if you  are positive the original engine is still in it you can date it  that way as well. I believe the later models had orange decks and running boards too. Someone else will have to take it from here, I am sure there are several other differences but this is how I can identify.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
