tractorshark Posted January 28, 2009 Author Share Posted January 28, 2009 I think that the tractors would have become a strong suit again for IH. I know we have all probably said "If only they would have had powershift", but I really don't think that powershift earlier would have mattered. There are more than 23,000 3x/5x88's that were sold during a dark period of agriculture. I don't know how this compares to the Greenies, but I don't think that is to bad considering the short run they had(essentially 3 years). Add that to the powershift trans(magnum) coming and maybe the hydromechanical in the wings and maybe they emerge with an unbeatable lineup. I just think that IF they could have stayed afloat 3 or 4 more years, they could have turned things around (easy to say now). For some reason I think that the strike and how it was handled, was the gut shot that sent them staggering. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
