Search Product Q&A's Answered by Jose, the Lawn Mower Expert

I have one small part of my 3/4 acre yard that has a significant incline. How much incline can this mower handle? Is there any riding lawn mower that can be used for this, or am I better off having something else to handle this?
Benjamin Johnson 
from North Carolina 
August 17, 2011
Answer
Benjamin - most residential riding mowers, including this Allis Chalmers tractor, will handle an incline of 18 to 20 degree's of slope. The manufacturer specifies no more than 15 degree's in the owners manual, but in reality, a little bit more than that is possible. You will probably need a walk behind mower to maintain that area of your property with the steep incline.
+
Does the AC130 allow mowing in reverse by key selection or do you have to press a button or operate some other control to get it to mow in reverse?
Donald K. Hall, Sr. 
from Connecticut 
July 25, 2011
Answer
Donald - The Allis Chamlers will mow in reverse using a key selection feature, but it's not recommended. Here is the info directly out of the owner's manual for this model:

Reverse Mowing Operation (RMO)
WARNING: Mowing in reverse can be hazardous to
bystanders. Tragic accidents can occur if the
operator is not alert to the presence of children.
Never activate RMO if children are present. Children
are often attracted to the unit and the mowing
activity.
1. Engage the blades.
2. Insert the supplied key into the RMO switch, located to
the right of the steering wheel bellows.
3. Turn the key. The L.E.D. light will illuminate, indicating
that the RMO feature has been activated. The mower
deck can now be operated while the unit is traveling in
reverse.
4. The reverse mowing option is deactivated when the
blades are disengaged, and must be reactivated each
time the blades are engaged, if desired.
5. Remove the key to restrict access to the RMO feature.
WARNING: The engine will shut off if the speed
control pedal is moved into reverse while the blades
are engaged and the RMO is not activated.

Just ordered the Allis Chalmers 46" tractor. Does it have headlights?
Jeffro 
from Ohio 
July 17, 2011
Answer
Jeffro - yes, the Allis Chalmers tractor does come with head lights.

I've read that the all wheel steer is nice but takes some muscle. My wife enjoys mowing sometimes. Have you received much feedback from female users and what do they have to say? Also, does this model have a cup holder?
Tim 
from Pennsylvania 
July 06, 2011
Answer
Tim - you are correct. Turning an all-wheel steer tractor does take a bit more muscle than turning a regular tractor. Other than the reviews that are posted on line for this product, we haven't received any feedback one way or the other specifically from female customers concerning the steering of this tractor. And yes, it does have a cup holder.

Todd:I'm from the North West ,Who does the service on these machines? They are not very common in this area. thank you;Norm from the Pacific NorthWest
Norman Berg 
from Washington 
June 30, 2011
Answer
Norman - service on the Allis-Chalmers tractors is performed at your nearest Simplicity service center. Here is the link you can use to find the dealer closest to your home: Simplicity dealer locator
+
Todd, can you tow a cart behind the Allis-Chalmers 7800511 with no problems especially with the hydrostatic trans and 4 wheel steering, thanks ?
Kenneth 
from Texas 
June 06, 2011
Answer
Kenneth - the Allis Chalmers AC130 all-wheel steer tractor will tow a 10 cubic foot yard cart with no problem. Larger carts may or may not be easily towed depending on what you intend to load in them.
+
What is the actual overall width of the mower? I have a gate that I would need to fit it through that is 48" wide-would this fit through it or will I have to go with a 42" model?
 
from  
May 28, 2011
Answer
With the discharge chute on the mower deck in the DOWN position, this mower has an overall width of approx 55 inches, so it would not fit through your gate. With the discharge chute in the UP position, the overall width is approx. 47.5", so it would be really tight as far as getting through a 48" wide gate. I would have to recommend going with a 42" mower deck model.
+
Please compare the Allis Chalmers AC130, 23 hp lawn tractor to the Simplicity Broadmoor 22 hp lawn tractor - which do you recommend and why? Also, headlights are important to me - do these come w/lights? Please compare your choice between these two with the Kubota GR2020 or T2080. Thank you.
David Paciencia 
from New York 
May 24, 2011
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. The Simplicity is the best lawn tractor on our site. The AC and the Simplicity are both manufactured by Briggs & Stratton, but the Simplicity is the higher end. They both have lights. I have no comparison with the Kubota because we do not offer that brand.
+
I have never heard of Allis Chalmers before finding this website. I have seen a few "mom and pop" Ariens stores, John Deere Stores, and Cub Cadet stores. Home Depot and Lowes have those three as well as Toro, Husqvarna, and Troybilt. Worx and Craftsman of course from Sears. So my questions are: How difficult is it going to be to find parts? Will I be stuck with internet only ordering? Will this brand fade? Longevity? The price of the mower seems good, but if I can't find blades, filters, belts, etc., or if I have to pay 2 or 3 times the amount for them, it's not so attractive. Also, How American made is it? Does it have any MTD in it at all? I have read that Ariens, Cub Cadet, even Craftsman have at least some MTD parts in them, which are known to be cheap outsourced junk.
Matt 
from New York 
May 21, 2011
Answer
Matt - the Allis Chalmers brand is part of the Briggs and Stratton power products group, same as Snapper and Simplicity. This brand is in no way affiliated with MTD. This tractor is the same basic design, and uses many of the same components, as the more popular Snapper LT130AWS all-wheel steer tractor that sells for $2500 to $2900. You can readily find parts and get service on an Allis Chalmers tractor from your local Snapper or Simplicity dealer, and since this tractor uses a Briggs and Stratton engine, engine parts are also readily available from any Briggs and Stratton dealer or service center. I really don't think parts availability would be an issue for you unless you live in a remote part of upstate New York and there are no local Snapper or Simplicity dealers close to where you live. You may want to check on that first before you buy one of these. These tractors are VERY American made.

As to your other statement, Ariens products do not have any MTD parts in them. Ariens and MTD are two totally different companies. Cub Cadet is owned by MTD, and Cub Cadet products would have some common components and parts as found on MTD products. MTD also builds several of the Craftsman brand mowers and snow blowers.

Do you have a part number for the snapper snow blade for a LT130 AWS which also fits the Allis chalmers AC130 AWS ? Thank you can't find it online. Sincerely brad j
Brad Johnson 
from Ohio 
May 18, 2011
Answer
Brad - because this is an all-wheel steer model, there is not a snow plow blade offered on this model. While the all-wheel steer function makes this tractor extremely maneuverable on turf and bare ground, it does not offer very good traction in the snow.
+
What bagger kit would i order for this mower?
L.D.SMITH 
from Colorado 
May 15, 2011
Answer
The Allis Chalmers all-wheel steer model uses a Snapper 7600070 bagger.

is the engine pressurized for oil?
Dave 
from Minnesota 
May 10, 2011
Answer
Yes, this unit would also have a spin on oil filter.

Thanks,

TODD HOW HEAVY MADE IS THE MOWER DECK? I CURRENTLY HAVE A JOHN DEERE LX176 I PURCHASED IN 1997. ON A LOT OF THE BETTER PRICED MOWERS LIKE SEARS, YARDMAN ETC, THE MOWER DECK IS WEAK AND DOES NOT HOLD UP WELL, ALSO WHAT ABOUT WARRANTY ON THIE MOWER
DENNIS 
from Missouri 
May 08, 2011
Answer
Dennis - this Allis-Chalmers tractor has a two year consumer warranty on the engine and all non-consumable components. The warranty does not cover consumable components like belts, spark plugs, tires, etc.

There are two types of mower decks used on all residential grade riding mowers. Most residential riding mowers have what is known as a "stamped deck". These deck are literally stamped (shaped) out of a full sheet of 14 guage or 12 gauge steel. The one piece construction does provide strength, but the gauge of steel is lighter, so the stamped decks can be dented or dinged over time. This Allis Chalmers tractor has a 12-gauge stamped steel deck.

The second type of deck is a "welded" deck. As the name implies, this type of deck is made by welding steel pieces together. You wouldn't think so, but a welded deck is actually more durable than a stamped steel deck. The welded decks are also usually made from heavier (thicker) 7 gauge to 10 guage steel - adding to their strength and durability, but also adding to the cost of the mower.
+
ANY SNOW THROWER AVAILABLE FOR THIS AND CAN IT REALLY HANDLE MOVING SNOW?
Tony 
from Iowa 
May 07, 2011
Answer
Tony - because this is an all-wheel steer model, there is not a snow blower attachment nor a snow plow attachment offered on this model. While the all-wheel steer function makes this tractor extremely maneuverable on turf and bare ground, it does not offer very good traction in the snow.
+
Does the deck have a roller ? How many anti-scalping wheels does it have ?
Brad Johnson 
from Ohio 
April 28, 2011
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. the deck has no roller, but there are two anti scalp wheels.
+
I have a yard that is very hilly with a double slope. I have had other lawn tractors that I was assure would pull the grade but it was almost impossible. How good is this one on a grade?
Jerry 
from Georgia 
April 22, 2011
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. This mower is able to handle a grade. The all wheel steering helps for better control.
+
How is this tractor rated as mulching capabilities,double blade? Do you have to buy mulching blades?
Joseph Orlando 
from Ohio 
April 22, 2011
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. This tractor rates as a good mulching mower. We have a mulch kit available. The model number of the mulch kit is 722796. IT is a Snapper mulch kit, but it is compatible with this tractor.
+

David Brozo

Can I pull equipment with this tractor?
John 
from Washington
