4-WD Articulated Tractor Made From Allis-Chalmers Rear Axles
I built a 4-WD articulated tractor out of two Allis-Chalmers WC rear axles. I paid $100 for one tractor and was given the other one. I removed the engines from both tractors and used parts of both frames. I turned both frames around and put an articulation joint in the middle where they meet. Power is sup-plied by a Chevrolet 235 6-cyl. gas engine mounted on front. I also installed a power divider for the transmission and built my own hydraulic system for hydrostatic steering.
I also constructed an 8-ft. mower that I pull behind and to the side of my Sears Craftsman riding mower. The mower is powered by a gas engine and rides on four caster wheels. I built a frame to support the deck and a hitch system that includes a steel rod that pins onto the side of the tractor. I can remove the add-on mower by pulling three pins. (Alfred W.
