Found this International 706 near Pearland, TX. I have seen a lot of Farmall 706's but this is the first International 706 I have ever seen. Is this considered a "Wheatland" tractor? Around this area it would have most likely been seen in a rice field.

Somebody has switched the rear fenders to Farmall fenders on that tractor. It is a standard type, wheatland type, or wheel type tractor, depending on what part of the country one is in. In Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, or Mississippi the International version was quite commonaly used in rice fields.

I own a IH 706 gas very similar to that, but mine has the original clam shell fenders. It's one of my favorite tractors, I use it on a no-till drill in the spring and then it spends the summer on a CIH 531 square baler. It's just a really handy tractor. Just put a set of K&M steps on it and can't wait for spring to use it....... :)

That's just a standard International 706.
The Wheatland Edition was an option package on a standard International that included T/A delete, clamshell fenders with full platform & rear step, one hydraulic outlet, and a Wheatland badge/sticker on the front radiator panel. Early '06 Wheaties had a panel with no hole for the T/A lever, the later ones and the '56 Wheatlands used the same panel as other machines with the hole for the lever...just no linkage.
I don't believe there was a 706 Wheatland Edition, just 806 and 1206 in the '06 years.
General rule of thumb...if it's got a T/A then it's not a Wheatland.

And yep, it would look better with a set of clamshells on it. Looks like just a quickie spray job too with those white emblems and red rims.
