International 300

I have a 300 series tractor that has the McCormick name on the side. It has the wide front end. Is this what they call the row crop version of the International 300? I don't know much about these and just purchased the tractor for use around my house. I need to order an operator manual and I want to make sure that I get the right one. Any help would be appreciated.

This is what my unrestored 300-U looks like. If yours is like this, it needs a different manual from the others.

Here is a picture of a 300 that I used to own.

Since your tractor says McCormick on the side it's almost certainly the Farmall 300 (row crop) version. This normally came with the narrow front end, but wide fronts were available for it from the factory, and from aftermarket suppliers. It should also say "FARMALL" in chrome letters on the side.

IH also made a "standard" or utility tractor, known as the International 300, which came only with a wide front. This one says "INTERNATIONAL" on the side. It's sometimes called the 300U.

Perhaps the easiest way to distinguish between the two if the chrome lettering is missing is the rear tires. The 300U has 28-inch tires, and sits close to the ground. The Farmall 300 has 38-inch tires, and sits higher. If you search in the Gallery under Tractor Photos (left side of your browser screen) under "300", you should find pictures of both varieties.

These two models use the same engine, but many of the other parts are different. Hope this helps you figure out what you have.

Guy's please correct me, but there are three types of Farmall 300 with wide fronts - Utility , Hi Clear and Wide Tread. The Standard Farmall 300 Operators manual covers Row crop, Hi Clear, and Wide Tread. The utility is covered on in a different manual. If looks like this (except with a wide front) it is a Row Crop style.

Today's Featured Article - Show Coverage: Fair Weather Tractor - by Dave M.. No, Fair Weather isn't some rare brand. It's the kind you can't leave out in the rain. Here's how it happened. I had been casually looking for a tractor for weeks. I saw a few 9N's, but they had even fewer amenities than the 8N my Grandpa bought new in '52 with a Dearborn loader. That was 10 years before I was born, so I grew up thinking that 8N was the world's best tractor. Grandpa had greenhouses, with over half an acre under glass, and that 8N did almost everything. It was the only ... [Read Article]
