Model History Edit

For Company history see
Main article: International Harvester

The 1972 International 354, built in England, took the place of the old US-built International 404 Utility, last built in 1968. The 354 offered a choice of gasoline or diesel engines. The diesel was the British-built BD-144 previously used in the McCormick International B-275 tractor. The BC-144 gasoline engine was a conversion of the diesel.

Tractor Comparison, Gasoline Models Edit

The gasoline-powered International 354 closely matched the other models shown in the following table for power, engine size, forward speeds, weight, and price. The US-built Case 470 was quite a bit more expensive. The Oliver was more powerful but was an older design with a less-useful 6-speed transmission.

Tractor Comparison, Diesel Models Edit

The British-built International 354 diesel competed directly with other imported utility tractors: the British-built Ford 2000 and Massey-Ferguson MF135, the German-built John Deere 820, and Romanian Long 350. The US-built Case 470 was quite a bit more expensive. The German Deutz-Fahr D3006 was a smaller, less-expensive tractor.
