My International Harvester – Farmall A

The Farmall A tractor was first introduced by the International Harvester Company in 1939. It was designed as a smaller and more affordable tractor for small to medium-sized farms. The Farmall A was produced from 1939 to 1947, during which time over 100,000 units were manufactured.

The Farmall A was a compact tractor that was powered by a four-cylinder gasoline engine with a maximum output of 18 horsepower. It had a three-speed transmission and could achieve speeds of up to 12 miles per hour. The tractor was also equipped with a hydraulic lift system, which allowed it to power various implements such as plows, cultivators, and mowers.

During World War II, the Farmall A was used for various tasks such as plowing fields and hauling equipment. After the war, the tractor became popular with small farmers who needed a reliable and affordable tractor for their operations. In the 1950s, many Farmall A tractors were sold to developing countries where they were used for agricultural purposes.

The Farmall A underwent several changes during its production run, including the addition of electric starting and lighting systems, as well as a redesigned hood and grille. In 1947, the Farmall A was replaced by the Farmall Super A, which featured several improvements over its predecessor, including a more powerful engine and an optional hydraulic system.

Today, the Farmall A is a popular collector’s item for tractor enthusiasts and is considered a classic example of early American farm equipment. Its compact size and versatility make it a popular choice for small-scale farming and gardening operations.
