IH series info wanted

Recommended Posts

So after the 60 series with the 140 240 340 460 and 560, I don’t understand which series come next and when. And which tractors are apart of which series. (Like the 544 is apart of what series?) Can anyone list out the series past the 60 series like, 56 and 66 etc in the correct order? Everywhere else I’ve googled just confused me more. Not an urgent question just curious. I understand the letter series through the 60 series, just not beyond that. Hope this makes sense.

Thanks, Brody

Next was the 06 series, 706, 806, 1206. Also includes 404 and 504. The 656 was built at the end of the 06 series, through the 56 series and overlapped with the 1st year of the 66 series production.

Then was the 56 series, 756, 856, 1256, 1456. This series included the 544.

The 826 and 1026 were built toward the end of the 56 series production run.

Next was the 66 series, then the 86 series.

Last was the 30 and 50 series. 3088, 3288, 34,88, 3688, 5088, 5288, 5488.

I know there are are small tractors and other models that fall in here but this is just a very brief description. Others can probably add much more detail.

The 404 replaced the 240, the 504 replaced the 340 in 1961. The 460 and 560 were built until 1963. The 606 replaced the 460 utility around 1963. The 706 and 806 were new models for 1963. The 1206 and 656 Farmall started in 1965. The 606 was joined by the 656 International (utility) in 1966. The 04 and 06 series were in production until late 1967 when they were replaced by the 56 series. This included the 544. The 826, 1026, and 1456 (Replaced the 1256) in late 1969. These ran until 1971 with the exception of the 544 and International 656(utility) which ran until 1973. The 454 and 574 were introduced in late 1970 as part of the world wide series of tractors. The 454 was replaced by the 464 in 1973. The 664 (1972-73) was a fill in until the 674 (late 1973)could be built. The 66 series started in late 1971 through late 1976 when they were replaced by the 86 series. The 84 series came out in 1978 and replaced the 74 series. The 86 series were replaced by the 30 and 50 series in late 1981. The 33 88 and 3588 2+2s came out in 1979 and the 3788 joined the group in 1980. These were replaced by the 60 series (6588 etc) in early 1982.

On most of the series (until the 5088+3088) the last number in the model designed how many cylinders the engine had. Example 544 was 4 cylinder, 656 was a 6 cylinder both built in the same time frame. 

684 was a 4 cylinder and 686 a 6 cylinder

And then there were the 3 cylinder tractors.  I was surprised when I came upon my first 464 powered by a 3 banger  D179 and really surprised at how smoothly the 3 cylinder runs.

The 464 and the like were British built utility tractors, all tracing their roots back to the B-250. The model numbers were all over the map and didn't really form a full "series" until the 84 series. They were generally 3-digit numbers under 700 until the 784 came out with the rest of the 84 series.

Whole different world from the American tractors, and you only know which tractors fit where by rote memorization.

I was told by a guy that the 06 amd 56 series was named this way, 544 was 54hp and 4 cylinder , a 1256 125hp amd 6 cylinder,  1456 145hp and 6 cylinder,  1206 120hp 6 cylinder,  is that correct? Sound neat if so I know some of the hp is off slightly but not.much

Except an 806 was 94 hp.

At least ih never had multiple tractors that had the same number. Go to a dealer once and get filters for a 8430, you better specify if it's the one from the 70s or more recent one, or the r series for that matter.

Can someone list the models that were available in each series small and big just the ones that were offered here in the USA or Canada. I would like to collect the biggest and smallest of each lineup. Going with the biggest first

That would be a good collection. If I could I would try to buy every tractor in the lineup. A person can dream maybe from a 8/16 to 7788 and a few of the mogul , titan tractors

ah yes, I didn't realize that but I never had any time around ih combines. Jd does that with their equipment also. Imagine my disappoint when I ordered axle bearings for a 7400 forage harvester and got bearings for a 7400 tractor.
