1962 factory picture of the initial production TS460. As you can see it is a big brute of a machine and Allis-Chalmers had great hopes for it. This unit is fitted with a Farr aircleaner and the characteristic Allis-Chalmers curved exhaust pipe.

Factory shot of an Allis-Chalmers 562B shows well the very clean lines of this large motor scraper. Operators loading mirror above the windshield is noteworthy

Goat country was no problem for an Allis-Chalmers 562. Ample power and automatic no-spin differentials meant that the machine could climb with the best of them. This photo is of an A series machine taken near Big Sur, California in 1963.

562 strips kaolin at a china clay deposit in Georgia, 1964. Oddly angled bowl lift cylinders still provided a good measure of cutting edge penetration despite the strange geometry.

Nice shot of a near new 562B descending steep hill with a good load. Allis-Chalmers had a reputation for the quality of machines they turned out and were quite innovative in their time. The model 562 pushed the boundaries a little far.

The EMD 1:50 scale model of a 1962 vintage Allis-Chalmers TS460. As you can see it is a fine looking model and has the cable operated apron, only fitted to the first production series machines. As mentioned in the text, the wheel hubs are a little too large in comparison with photos of the real machine and the price tag is even larger!

Two 460Bs carve up the earth on Interstate 85 in Virginia, USA. These two belong to BG Young & Sons, a prominent Allis-Chalmers user.

For sale! Spotted on the internet was this Allis-Chalmers 460B looking in darn fine condition and on good tyres. It is a stock standard 460B without a windscreen, although traces of it can still be seen. It sold for US$8995 – a bargain!

Beautiful colour study of an Allis-Chalmers 460C loading damp clay on a Pittsburgh, USA, highway job in 1968. This is a very early production machine as the 460C was only introduced that year. Photo was taken in October so the trees are all beginning to lose their leaves prior to winter.

Fantastic photo from volume 27 of the Allis-Chalmers Reporter showing a model 460B being push loaded while another returns from the cut. The action was captured on a highway relocation job. Particular points of note are the complete absence of ROPS, windscreens, hearing protection (and probably resource consents) which are so prevalent today.
