  3. copyright HDT : Traton and Navistar Traton was formed in 2018 out of Volkswagen’s Truck and Bus Group, in order to spearhead the German automaker's push to become a major player in the global commercial vehicle market. That bid included establishing a presence in North America – the world’s highest volume commercial vehicle market. To further that goal, Volkswagen had already developed a close relationship with Navistar, in 2016 announcing a strategic alliance that included various research and development projects. That alliance has helped lead to Navistar introducing a version of Volkswagen truck brand MAN’s diesel engine as the International A26 engine for International Class 8 trucks and more recently, a prototype electric medium-duty truck. Navistar struggled in the wake of its controversial decision on how to meet the Environmental Protection Agency's emissions 2010 standards. It decided to forego selective catalytic reduction (SCR) downstream exhaust technology to reduce diesel emissions in favor of advanced exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) technology. The company’s MaxxForce family of diesel engines were plagued with technical issues, largely related to the significant increase in waste heat they generated due to their advanced EGR systems, and Navistar’s commercial vehicle market share and stock price suffered as a result. Navistar endured a long series of lawsuits over the failure of the MaxxForce engines to perform as advertised, but settled all pending complaints and “closed the books” on those

  6. Only a marketing question : IHC is a worldwide organization, the company owns some brands & trade marks, and use them differently in the different countries where it exports or build directely through its subsidiaries.For American Domestic market, the real risk of infrigement of the anti-trust law in the twenties drove IH to drop the distinct networks Mac Cormick and Deering, in order to use from now on an unique composed Brand (mc+D) In France, the two brands were sold separatly until 1947 ,using also the Brand Osborne and CIMA (for the ihc engines.Another example : All the tractors IH imported in Denmark brought the "Farmall" name typically, until the end of the fifties.What was the reason why ? "Farmall" name was particularly well known in this country, as Mac Cormick in France, the transition toward international brand was a very slow process....the Brand Marketing is a science, inspired by the customers habits....
  7. Made both in France and Germany - The German affiliate exported some tractors to Canada - The availability of Parts is correct for the engine - the transmission is very reliable but in case onf something should happen, it is not easy to purchase new parts - except in salvage fields in France, Germany. D268 engine natural aspiration for the 844 S - if the tractor is equipped with an hydraulic shuttle, avoid the purchase.
  8. What do you need exactly ?
  9. 1 2 3 4 5 6 : kph with 1 2 3 4 5 6 gear on the shift level - 500>2500 engine RPM and PTO 540/1000 RPM at 2150 engine rpm - For the Jean de Bru cultivator try the 5th gear 8KPH-->Approximatly more than 12KPH at the same engine RPM (1500) 4 KPH higher - the engine and the tractor will follow -be careful with the implement !
