Farmall tractors have become one of the most iconic symbols of agricultural mechanization since being introduced into service during World War II. Conceived as general purpose workhorses built to last, this iconic tractor represents decades of American agricultural mechanization in 20th-century agriculture.
Farmall Regular was launched into prominence with its revolutionary tricycle front end tractor. Later Regular models received upgrades such as improved rear power take-off.

Unlock the Secrets of the Classic Farmall Model B?

By the early 1920s, International Harvester’s motor cultivator had developed into an all-purpose tractor capable of replacing teams of horses. Intended to perform plowing, harrowing, and belt work as well as cultivate vegetables (meaning breaking up soil between rows to kill any weeds that had taken root), its narrowly spaced front wheels ran between plants during cultivation while its high rear axle passed over rows and offered power take-off for attachments such as corn pickers.
IH enlisted industrial designer Raymond Loewy to give its new general-purpose tractors an elegant, streamlined aesthetic. These were known as the Farmall Letter series; models A through M and an MD diesel version were introduced starting in 1939. Their bright red paint scheme would remain their trademark color until 1970 (though some CNH Global utility tractors revived this name). Of note is the B model; which had a smaller frame size with less options, but otherwise was identical with its regular-tread counterpart Model A.

Model E tractors were constructed for speed as well as craftsmanship. Workers assembled the chassis and mechanical components at Emeryville before transporting them 500 miles to Pasadena’s Walter M.

Unlocking the Secrets of the Farmall Model G?

Model G was specifically created for vegetable gardeners, small farms, and landscape businesses. It can accommodate an assortment of implements, including plows, cultivators, and front-mounted hay rakes.
Compact tractors were distinguished by a distinctive design featuring a Continental N62 four-cylinder engine in the back to provide traction for rear wheels. Three differential locks and high- and low-range gearing were included in these vehicles to complete their capabilities.
Ideal technical solutions combined maximum off-road capabilities with refined on-road driving qualities for maximum utility in one vehicle – the G. It’s equally at home in both countryside and town environments thanks to modern independent double-wishbone front suspension sharpening on-road precision and the DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes offering flexible customization of its driving characteristics for any situation, making the G an indispensable companion in daily use.

Unlock the Power of the Model H Farmall Tractor?

Deere released their Model H tractor in 1939 with hopes that it would meet the demands of small-acreage farmers for something that could handle all power jobs at rock-bottom cost, according to Hemmings. One of the first tractors using distillate fuel, it featured a two-cylinder horizontal engine equipped with belt pulleys for running implements off a camshaft to reduce internal drive gearing while simultaneously decreasing engine speed overall.
Today, this tractor remains popular as a collector item–more for nostalgia than utility. An all-original 1946 model advertised for sale in Green Magazine in 2009 sold for $3,500 or best offer; high clearance versions with single front wheel (HN) and conventional tricycle configuration (HWH) also exist, along with easily restorable parts readily available for repair.

Unlock the Power of the Model K Farmall Tractor?

An enormous roadster from the early decades of the 20th century may not be typical automotive fare for this blog, but this particular vehicle caught my eye so strongly I felt I couldn’t ignore it. This car towers over nearly every Ford prior and subsequent to it including sleek 1933 models as well as garage-built T specials and Deuce hot rods built by hobbyists.
At its heart was its powerful engine: six cylinders featuring individually cast cylinders to generate 40 horsepower through a two-speed planetary transmission system.
Introduced by Henry Ford in 1906, the Model K was an expensive vehicle to produce – contrary to his vision of making mass-market cars more affordable – selling only for two years before production ceased due to competition from Henry Ford’s forthcoming Model T model and becoming Ford’s first financial failure.
