Anybody here ever watched or heard of a TV show called "Heavy Rescue" based in Canada? I was watching episodes of it on my Netflix this past weekend and there was 1 episode with a VERY NICE 6080 2wd in it that came to the rescue for one of the heavy wreckers that got stuck on the icy road and couldn't move. The 6080 was a really nice open station 2wd sporting wheel chains and a back blade. She had no trouble getting that heavy wrecker moving again so it could finish rescuing the double soybean trailer semi that had slid off the road too. Pretty awesome sight to see.

I love these posts. I want someone to take all these clips and put them all together in a YouTube video. From Matt Helm and the AC golf cart and Barnaby Jones and a wayward 7045 or 7060 PS to the AC tug on Restoration Garage and Kenny Rodger's 190 in Six Pack.

I seen the Perry Maison episode that groundhog is talking about and at the end of the show it said that Allis Chalmers supplied the construction equipment.

I saw this short film on Mystery Science Theatre many years ago. AC managed to get a cameo of the new D series in there.

Speaking of allis on tv. On the opening thing of green acres is that a allis sitting by driveway. It's so quick it's hard to tell.

The Green Acres tractor is not an Allis. I Googled it once but forget.

OK, I had to look it up again. They used a John Deere at beginning of show but in episodes it was a Fordson, probably because Ford was a sponsor. They had a made up brand name for it like Hoyt Claxton. I think Lisa made a head gasket for it using her pancake batter

I've seen the tractor Mikez is talking about. It's in the beginning of the opening credits. It's in an aerial view right after Eddie Albert's name. It's sitting next to a white building next to a driveway or road.
Looking at the past to see the future.

Old NCIS episode (season 1 or 2) has a helicopter landed in the middle of a crop circle in a corn field with an old Allis driven by Patrick Swazye’s brother.
