I stopped by my local tractor dealer today and he had a IH 350 Utility High for sale. It had a high clearance frontend and had 38 in rims on the rear with ajustable axals like a H on it.
Has anyone seen or heard of this model before? It is not listed in my 350 Utility shop manual.

Thanks
Paul In Western WI

I would like to know if any one knows how many 300 and 350 Hi-Utility's were built. I have found a 300 Hi-Utility and I am trying to buy it.

Paul-- I think these are rather rare verisions of the 350U, along with the Wheatland. I think they come in gas and diesel, I don't know about LP. I was lucky to pick one of these up at auction years back it's a gas with fasthitch. Some of them had long axle in the back for diffrent row spacings. Was the tractor in good shape? What was the SN. I think you would enjoy a tractor like that as they are rather rare. Please post if you get it. Thanks

It is real clean and has a fresh paint job. The tires are about 70% and not dry rotted. The only mod I could see was a 12 alternator was added.

I have that same tractor. It's called a 350 hi-utility. Very rare tractor. It has all the advantages of a utility with the additional advantage of higher clearance and better traction. They were only made in 1958 and then were replaced by the 460 hi-utility which is itself a rare tractor. I have been told IH developed that tractor because of the risk of fire from the utility models in grain fields. By the way, mine has less than 1600 hrs on it. It had been sitting in a shed for 25 years when I found it.

I thought the advantage of a utility was that it did sit lower to the ground. What is the advantages of a 350 high-utility over a Farmall 350?

It is a lot shorter and not as wide as the stander size 350. Can be truned around in a barn or narrow feild a lot easier. It also is lighter and can get in and out of wet areas with out getting bogged down in the mud.

The Hi Utility is not any lighter that the Farmall version. The only reason the Utility models were lighter was the lack of the 2 1/2 inch longer axles, 38 inch tires, 38 inch rim and those heavy cast wheels. My 300 Utility weighs 4900 pounds without any wheel weights or fluid in the tires. My 300 Farmall with wide front, 16.9 rear tires and 14 inch rims with one set of rear wheel weights weighs 5800 pounds. 300 pounds for wheel weights, and I know each one of those cast rear wheels weigh at least 300 pounds each. So you see take 900 pounds of the Farmall and it would weigh about the same as the 300 U. If I also took off the wide front and put the tricycle front end under it you could get the Farmall lighter than the 300 U. Over all length is about the same. Wheel base is a little shorter on the Utility because the front axle is built back under the front a little and the axle angles back also. They sure won't turn around as short as a Farmall with a tricycle front end.

Hi Red,
Thanks for the info. As for turning, I agree that a Farmall with a tricycle front end can turn on a dime. I used to have to turn a wide front MD in a barn. Almost took out a wall each time. The 350U could be in and out and turned because it was shorter than the wide front MD. When I said lighter I was talking about a 350U that had 28 in wheels.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
