Super AV cultivators with a tractor thrown in

Postby Super A » Tue Dec 29, 2020 11:54 am

Here's the SAV I brought home from NJ yesterday. I wanted the universal mounting frames and rear gangs for the SAV I drug home earlier this spring, but the asking price for the whole package was too tempting. Looks to be around a '53. Engine is loose, block has a freeze crack repair, 9.5 rears which is a tad unusual from what I've seen. I may end up keeping this one and selling the other one!

What is the different between the Super A and Super AV ? I know the rears are and front wheels.

The main difference is the 36" rear tires, and 19" fronts or 16" fronts, and they have the heavy duty front axle that was optional on the Super A. The bigger tires make it necessary for the universal mounting frames to be different.

I think they used a heavier final drive casting as well, at least early on, but I have to do some research to confirm.

This makes two. As ugly as this one is, it may be the "keeper." There's just something about it I like. I'm going to try to get it to run and then decide.

At least you have the proper front wheels with this one. I had to make new front AV wheels...

Front Spindle drops are also taller than than the regular Heavy Duty axle used on the Industrial tractors. I have had a couple of the high clears with wider rear axle stubs on the Super AV's. I too recall the early ones seemed to have more webbing / gussets on the final drive castings, haven't did any part number research on this either.

They all seem to look this rough or worst coming out of the field. I haven't seen any gently used Hi Clearance tractors around, most of the ones in my area were brought in from further South.
