Hi. I am new to this forum, all "fourms" no idea how they work.
Anyway, I have 2 Allis chalmers yard tractors. I know they are old and collectable and that's about it. Lol They both ran about 3 yrs ago when they went into my barn. 1 is 712H orange w/plow & deck. Other is a B-1 it's yellow w/plow. I have no idea what they are worth.i am looking to sell them. But I'm clueless. Any info would help.
Thank you Tammy

Both tractors should be worth at least $300 each to an AC guy that really wants them even if they don't currently run as long as nothing is seized. Both are quite rugged and also simple enough that little work should be needed to get running again. Mind you, that is just for the tractor itself. Any attachments in working order are usually worth about $200 each to somebody wanting one. HTH

Be mindful of anything laying around. Tire chains, wheel weights and rear weights for B1 or other attachments

A recent price check.................

I purchased a 716H with 48 inch mower deck this summer for 800$ Canadian (590 US$) in Ontario.  The tractor was in working order, good tires, and had been well looked after by one owner.  It had been in storage for a few years, so it needed some TLC!!  The previous owner installed a replacement motor, same horsepower, sometime in the past

Your 712H should be the same tractor/mower if original, with a 12 HP engine, and the very desirable hydrostatic transmission

Allis Chalmers 700 Series Garden Tractors in good shape hold their value well in my neck of the woods

Here is a pic of my 716H



Hope this gives you some additional info for your project

Both Tractors look to be in very nice original shape. You shouldn't have any problem selling them. If I was closer, I would go for the B1...... Good Luck! Hope you sell em' to someone who appreciates AC equipment.

X2 what Steve said.
If the 712 doesn’t run and it appears to be sitting out on lawn. Tells me it was pushed or towed. Lift the seat an fenders and you will see a little handle looking thing on top of rear end “hydro” unit. It pushes down onto two little buttons. Push them down to prevent damage to hydro unit when pushing with out running.

Those are really nice looking survivors!!! Best of luck getting them sold. After now seeing what they look like, I want to mention that the prices I suggested in my prior comment I would consider to be bare minimums. They should easily bring at least that amount from anybody that truly knows what they are. That B1 is REALLY nice and I would be racing Steve there if it was closer as well.

Thank you for the information. I'm glad I picked them up with the Deer to put them in yard.
With slings... of course.
Yes, they both ran when they were put in the barn about 3 years ago. I'm sure the just need fresh gas and battery, maybe the carbs cleaned. I am in NW-Illinois. I would love to see these go where they would be "saved"

Your tractors are in excellent shape and ready to be put to work! They were well looked after by the owner.  I would add check spark/clean points to your list of actions to get them running.  

Great you are taking the time and effort to get them to a new home

Good luck with your project
