Agco Allis 918H Dimensions

Recommended Posts


I see an Agco Allis 918H for sale with a blown Kohler Command 18.   I was wondering if this tractor had the hood that is lower in front and shorter frame in front?  I remember that some member had a problem installing a Kohler Magnum into a Sovereign 18 with the Kohler Command because of the decreased room.  Thanks for your input.

I believe the late model Sovereigns powered with the Command and Triads, had a hood which was taller to fit the increased engine height. Actually the same hood but the hinge point on the frame was raised. Because on the late model Sovereigns the gas cap hole in the hood is off center slightly from the actual gas cap.

Exactly what Bill said.  The hoods are the same dimension.  It is the front frame structure that is taller on the older (opposed twin) engine tractors.  The 17 GTH-L would be that last model that had the taller front frame structure.

The newer Sovereigns hood was slightly lowered, the front frames sections is slightly different.  If it currently has the Command engine, original to the tractor, I would think it has the lowered hood.  Which makes it a bit tight, headlight clearance, etc. for the Magnums, etc with their exhaust.  One way to verify, is there an approximate 2" hole drilled through the side of the front most frame section?  That was for the exhaust to exit.  It did not exist in the late models.

Brett is correct...things are tighter on a Command powered tractor, which would have the shorter fromt frame section and downward sloped hood.  Bit, a magnum fits.  I bought an M20 repowered late model sovereign off Dave. Cleance to the headlights was very toght but he did a great job stuffing it in there. His build is archived here somewhere

      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
