Exactly what was the purpose of the high utility? Was it just that instead of sitting up higher like a row crop, you sit lower stratling the tranny? Kind of like an AC D- series.

 Re: 350 Hi-Utility in reply to IH fan, 02-10-2013 02:24:20  
I don't have a good answer for that. As far as clearance, I have a 460 HU which uses the same rear end and wheels as a row crop 460. In other words the rear clearance is the same. If the 460 RC has a WF the front clearance should be the same too. The utility/HU has a swept back front axle meaning that the turning radius is less than with the WF on the 460, but more than the NF. Also the utility/HU will not turn as short because with a locked rear wheel, the tire will slide and it will not "turn on a dime" like the row crop will. If the HU was made for taller crops in wide rows (front axle straddles the row) I don't think it will accept front mount cultivators which were popular in that day. I bought the tractor because it is relatively rare (400+ built) and the price was right--but I would like for someone to tell me what the advantage of the 350 and 460 HU's are over the rowcrops with a WF.
