    CONTROLLED TRACTION
    Allis-Chalmers own limited slip differential on rear wheels provides automatic controlled traction, putting more drive force on the wheel with best traction in slippery going. Aids maneuverability and control, helps reduce scuffing in tight turns, too. 
    IN-LINE DRIVE
    Allis-Chalmers in-line design aligns engine, bevel gear box and transmission driveshaft with crankshaft to help reduce vibration. Belt power transfer dampens shock loads between engine and transmission for smoother operation, less gear and bearing wear.

    Heavy duty full length steel frame cradles engine and power train to maintain critical parts alignment, season after season. 
      3 "LIVE" POWER TAKE-OFF POINTS
