The McCormick Tractor Co., founded in 1834, is well known worldwide for its International Harvester and Farmall tractor models. In 1954, the company unveiled its International B250, a smaller tractor than previous models that continued to mechanise small farms across the globe.

Before then, many of those small farmers were likely preparing fields with horses and ploughs.

  • The McCormick Tractor Co., founded in 1834, is well known worldwide for its International Harvester and Farmall tractor models.
  • In 1954, the company unveiled its International B250, a smaller tractor than previous models that continued to mechanise small farms across the globe.

Engine

The International B250 came new with a four-cylinder diesel engine with an injector pump and four injectors that could generate a rated 30 horsepower.

Specifics

The B250 came with rubber tires -- a fairly new development in the 1950s -- and it was Great Britain's first tractor to have disc brakes and differential locking. It also has twin steering rods.

Hitch and Appearance

The B250 features a three-point hitch, capable of pulling small and mid-size ploughs, as well as road running. Some models were made with roll bars, but, generally, the four-gear clutch, finger-formed steering wheel and bottom-formed metal seat were the height of its luxury. It was manufactured in candy-apple red, an International and Farmall trademark.
