Soon the employees of the company presented the Allis-Chalmers tractor which pleasantly surprised the farmers with its original appearance and impressive technical characteristics.
Until 1923, the company sold about 300 tractors a year, but the demand for its equipment was constantly growing, after 7 years this figure had already grown to 2300 machines annually. Special attention should be paid to the 1929 20/35 model, which was able to develop power up to 45 horsepower, since its design included a four-cylinder engine with a volume of 7.6 liters. Moreover, the production of tracked equipment began. It is worth highlighting the Model K with an 8.4-liter engine that develops power up to 50 horsepower.
The firm continued its development and by the end of the 1970s it entered into a number of agreements with popular firms. So, light tractors of the 5000 series are produced in Japan, at Fiat factories in Italy and Romania, and the new 6000 series belongs to the Renault brand.
