About IHC Farmall TractorsThe McCormick Harvesting Machine Company, formed by Cyrus Hall
McCormick, merged with several other manufacturers and formed the
International Harvester Co. They were primarily known for the
production of harvesting equipment. They began experimenting
with tractors around 1905. These tractors were huge, powerful and
clumsy and although they were useful for large areas, they did
not work well for the small acreage farmer.
Their first attempt at a smaller tractor was the Mogul 8-16 and
was a big hit. International Harvester continued to refine their
small tractor line with several follow-on models. The famous
letter series tractors, including the A, B, H and M begain production
IH produced many tractors during their reign and were ranked as one
of the largest manufacturers of farm tractors. In 1984 IH was purchased
by Tenneco and merged with the Case Corporation.
Some the most popular models produced were the A,
and the 786.
