IH features at the annual Kingaroy Rally


Recommended Posts

The Kingaroy & District Vintage Machinery Club's Annual Rally was held at Kingaroy in the South Burnett Region of Queensland last week-end where the feature was IH equipment. A vast variety of equipment was displayed  and the photos following show this variety. Peanuts are the principal crop grown here in the rich red volcanic soils of the area, hence quite a few row-crop equipped Farmalls were displayed, some with a distinct non IH red patina. I will follow up with some trucks in my next post.

Following on, here are some of the trucks at this show. You will notice how dry the grounds are. Even though we are in the first weeks of spring,  we are experiencing one of the worst droughts  since farming first started here in the 1800's  and what that can be seen here is typical a lot of the country at present. We can only hope for some summer rains. The Atkinson (bottom) was built by IH in Melbourne.

I wish we could have sent you some moisture this summer,we had an abundance. The A-554 looks like a 660 to me i wonder why the change the #'s for export, if there are actual differences in the tractors?

The A554 was built here in Victoria during the 1960's and virtually the same as the W6 and B450 from Britian, & fitted with the IH 264 4cy 55hp diesel engine.. The fibreglass cowling is about the only likeness to the 660. THis A554 was also available as a rowcrop Farmall and the 564 Farmall, also shown above replaced the A554.
