The Reason 4 difference?

Martin: Years ago there was a standard joke about buying a car. The basic car had a price. OK? Then if you wanted a steering wheel,it was extra cost. Tires..oh, that was extra cost. An engine was extra cost..get the idea? That was carried over to tractors as well. The C in 1948 replaced the B and BN. So to keep the advertized cost down it was made as a "basic" tractor. The B didn't have hydraulics so don't price the C with it either.. etc. So ya end up having some with extras and others NOT. As time when on, more and more extras were then included as Basic and always included in advertized price as "standard.". IHC also had made minor changes fairly often to tractors WITHOUT making a model change. The tourque tube on earlier C's wes lighter..etc. That changed and who cares.. Keep changing a few things now and then to improve the basic model. 50 years later it will take a dedicated person like Guy Fay to sort all this out and write some good referance books. How many really care that 1st gear in early C's was faster. They slowed it down for the SC. The distributer advance was sightly changed for the super (as I remember) but who cares for general work? Just look at major items. Disk brakes and 113-123 cubes? ALL of them are great..how's that 4 a summary(grin) Enjoy'em all.. ralph

Thanks to all, My dad just got a C in addition to his Super C and I am just trying to make a few comparisons. The C does not have fast hitch and I would like to get a finishing mower on it for not a lot of work or money. Maybe a 3 point hitch, not sure yet. Thanks again -- Martin

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
