Re: Allis-Chalmers D17 Series I...1960
Depending on the rubber in the rear, even in snow you should do ok. A D-17 is a much bigger tractor than an 8n is, like Steve said. With weights and chains you should be able to go anywhere that you ought to be going with a tractor.
Around here a series 1 is anywhere from about $1,500 to $3,500 depending on condition, but mostly around $2,500. For comparison, an 8N will sell for around $2,000.
It will be Snap Coupler hookup (I think it was Series 3 before they came with 3 point standard, if even then). There are parts available for them, and there is lots of snap coupler equipment available if you want to go that route, or you can put a 3 point on them for a couple hundred dollars.
