Each year, the Upper Midwest AC Club™ features a specific Allis-Chalmers tractor model as their way to continually promote and preserve knowledge of these machines that highlight a part of the Allis-Chalmers company history. During the 2020 Orange Spectacular®, the featured tractor will be the model Two-Ten. This year marks its 50th Anniversary of production. With less than 1,500 of these tractors ever built from 1970 to 1972, this “Landhandler” tractor filled the 42-horsepower gap between the 190XT and the Two-Twenty models. Except for the sheet metal and fuel system used on the Two-Ten, there were very few mechanical differences between the Two-Ten and Two-Twenty tractors. The same 3500 turbocharged diesel was used but a lower-output injection pump was set to produce a 122.40 PTO versus the Two-Twenty output of 135.95 PTO. When it was introduced, Two-Twenty orders took a big drop, but the Two-Ten gave Allis-Chalmers a much needed entry in the strong 120-hp market for two years until the new 7000 family came out in early 1973.
Anyone interested in bringing their Two-Ten to the Orange Spectacular® is welcome!
