Re: I-4 and I-6 whats different from W-4 and W-6 in reply to Jed, 08-07-1999 11:42:56
The I4 and W4 are the same engine and basic components as the H while the I6 and W6 are the same engine and size as the M. The I and W tractors are standard type tractors whereas the H and M were rowcrop tractors. The I's are industrial versions of the W's. The main diferences in the I's and W's are they came with different tire sizes and types, whe wheels were different, and the I's had a foot accelerator as standard. Different optional equipment and gearing was also available. The front axle may also have been different but I don't remember. The I4 was standard with 12x24 industrial tread rear tires and 5.50x16 multi rib front tires. The W4 was standard with 12x26 R1 rear tires and 5.50x16 front tires. The I6 was standard with 13x24 industrial tread rear tires and 6.00x16 multi rib front tires. The W6 was standard with 13x30 R1 rear tires and 6.50x16 front tires. There were several optional tire and wheel sizes on all of these models.

Both the I4 and W4 had foot brakes. The W4 was available with either a hand clutch or a foot clutch. The I4 was only available with the foot clutch. The I4 had a foot accelerator standard and this was not even available on the W4. This applied to both the 4 and 6 tractors. I believe various spark arrestor mufflers were available for the I series which were not available on the W series. I believe the drawbar was different and the fenders were the same, but I'm not sure. We had a I4 we used for a shop mule but that was many years ago and my memory may not be 100% correct.
