Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Green with Envy

Recommended Posts

I stopped by a John Deere dealer in my state recently looking for any used Simplicity or Allis gear. A veteran salesman approached me and asked if he could assist me. I told him I was looking for any Allis Chalmers tractors and/or implements. His reply floored me: "You won't find anything of that high quality around here" he stated. As we talked it became clear he was not so much an Allis fan. But he was of strong opinion that the quality of products from Deere, Allis and other manufacturers were much higher ten years ago and the quality had declined significantly since Allis went out of business.

        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
