There are several "Gaps" in the IHC line: No W-20 No F-40 No row-crop version of the W-9.

If they had continued the WD-40 and WD-9, they may have been able to keep up with John Deere.

they where way ahead of john deere by 15 years. ihc had the first diesel tractor motor ready in 1934. john deere did not have one till 1949, with the model R. it was the model D and the row crop G that was their big tractor. the 40's would work circles around those 2 piston slappers. ihc started loosing ground with the 60 series tractors.
there was no reason to have big row crop tractors to work open fields, as that was the wk40, wd40, w9, wd9, super wd9, 600, 650, and 660"s job.

The downfall of IHC-Farmall wasn't their product line, it was management and union. Though I pretty much bleed green, I would have to concede that during their hay-days, IHC's Farmall line of tractors was in most ways superior to Deere's. Dad had the same stationary engine on an irrigation well in the early 50's as was used in the W-9 tractor. Wasn't there a crawler that used that engine too? I think the engine carried a U-9 label. It was a big 4-banger, 55 hp as I recall, and even burned tractor fuel - lots of it. It was a red-hot, fire-belching dragon after dark.

Yes, the T-9 was the crawler.

The G was to compete with the F-30. The D hp wise was between a W-30 and W-40. No doubt a 40 would outwork a D but IH sold about 10,000 W40s and JD sold over 26,000 Ds during that same time period. JD sort of lost the battle but won the war.
