The International 330 was a utility tractor built by International Harvester from 1957 to 1958 in the USA.

Model historyEdit

Main article: International Harvester

The new International 330 utility tractor was essentially the chassis of the 350 Utility fitted with a smaller engine. The 135 ci 4-cylinder gasoline engine was similar to the engine of the Farmall 230 tractor, but with a 1/8" larger bore and 1/16" longer stroke. Like the 350, the 330 was available with the shift-on-the-go Torque Amplifier 2-speed planetary.

Tractor Comparison Edit

The small utility tractor class was founded by the Ford 9N with Ferguson System in 1939. By 1957 it had evolved into a very popular group of tractors with just 30-35 belt hp. Models available included the Case 310, David Brown 30, Ferguson TO35 and F40, Ford 601-series, Massey-Ferguson MF50, Minneapolis-Moline 335, and Oliver Super 55. The 2-cylinder John Deere 420U was slightly smaller and less powerful than the rest. International entered this class in mid-1957 with the 330. Built on the 350 chassis, it was heavier and more expensive than most of the other tractors in the class but offered the advantage of the Torque Amplifier. The 330 was only built for a short time before the same engine was used in the new International 340 chassis.
