Welcome Dave, you picked a great model to find. They are built like a tank. I have 2 of them and they do a lot of work for me. Occasionally one comes up for sale, just be patient. Are you looking for attachments also? They tend to be as hard or harder to come by as the tractor.

Can't help you with the Allis 720, but just be aware that there are scammers out there that watch some of these sites and they will claim that they have exactly what you are looking for and if you send them the money they will pay the shipping to get it to you. They will have pictures stolen off of some other internet site to make it look like they actually have the item you are looking for. Just wanted to make sure that you know to be extra careful these days. 

I will sometimes ask for a picture of some area they most likely would not be able to get a picture of if they did not have the item in their possession. Or tell them you need an address and a time as you have a friend in the area and you are going to send him to look at it.

Thank you all  ever so much for the information and help/ advice..have no idea about face book in Ohio having four 720's for possible sale ?...simply because I have no idea about anything to od with Facebook..I'm lucky to be able yo do email and paypal ...Please give me an email for each of the possibly available 720's I have a friend who has a friend who has a pick up truck ( not sure if it's wide enough to hold a 720 with high float tires ) however he also hasa trailer..Ohio is pretty close so a good chance that I could get there..Excellent advice about scammers ..I checked with a dealership in Kansas that has a 720 that looks great but they are asking $7,500.00 for it..seems like too many banana$ ?...thanks again please do advise ..all comments/ advice are most welcome..

Dave, I'm not all that far from you. I have a 720 with a loader, not for sale, that I dragged home from NE Atlanta, Ga. 
When I got it, it had a new B&S engine.
Good luck on getting one.

Not sure the reason but like the rest of the tractor market right now, not many coming up for sale.

Bought mine about five years ago, less than ten miles from home. Haven't seen another one close since!

Nice looking unit. it's on facebook.com/marketplace.    1977 Allis chalmers 720 loader mower - Commercial Vehicles - Packwaukee, Wisconsin | Facebook Marketplace | Facebook

Dave; wrong rear wheels, no problem.  If you are going to do some serious snow pushing you may need chains.  Herb(GA)

Good point Herb, one of my 720’s has the floatation tires and I had to order chains for it because it was useless without them in any snow above 4”. Like a tank with chains.
Good talking to you yesterday Herb, would have never guessed you are a young 91 years old. And again, thank you for serving our country my friend.
