About: 1950s ALLIS-CHALMERS CRAWLER TRACTORS PROMOTIONAL FILM 43814
Great video. Need more of them today to show the snowflakes what we do for them to sustain and enjoy life.
Without farmers and contractors life would not be possible as we have come to know it today.

... Worth mentioning there because at that time, it was still an oddity. Many homes there built before WW2 had concrete incinerators as a standard appliance in the back yard.
Funny how they are showing landfill as a good thing. so much has changed in the last 70 years
How many lungs were filled with dust, how many ears detoriated with noice, how many cases of lumonia etc. In none of these shots is any operator protection visible...
How much ass was kissed to get the air force in colorado
notice the guy running away from the explosion on RH side of screen. Jobsite safety
These guys would be really jealous of what I have: a 36" cut Troy Bilt riding mower..... <:-) Also, the host made a mistake when he said there were 6,000 men, when really only 5,998 men showed up as two didn't show for work because they were stoned the night before on pot & Opioids.
really very fascinating 🤩
This looks like it was made by Kling Film in Chicago. They did a lot of these kinds of industrial films for farm and construction equipment manufacturers. Also because the announcer on this film is Ed Roberts, who was the voice of countless drive-in commercials produced by Filmack (also in Chicago). His is the voice you hear on the classic "dancing hot dog" intermission film (titled, "Variety Show").https://youtu.be/4uhKLd9tBt4
water pipe for an airforce academy in colorado sounds a little fishy i wonder if its a huge underground bunker
Is this a tractor documentary or an Allis Chalmers commercial?
50's and 60's was the years the live on earth......
it's absolutely amazing the size of the projects with primitive equipment
we have an old AC loader (not sure what year but it's ancient) it's not articulated the back wheels turn to steer and it's powered by a straight 6 cylinder Gas engine we bought it from a junk yard probably 20 years ago. It still runs and we use it
And I bet it is still in use today and it's never had any problems
The dam near me has AC engines in it running it
Pretty hilarious to see the rocks raining down on the boss's truck and the guy running away from the blast radius at the Illinois highway blast footage
I remember the Allis Chambers tractors when growing up and it was like they just went out of business.
Sad to say,no more orange 🚜 tractors.Allis-Chalmers(AC)was ahead of its time in many ways and with its commitment to outstanding engineering and state-of-the-art of design,nobody would ever believe that one day AC would just fade from the farm fields and construction sites,just to become a faded memory in history.🚜⬅AC D-21
