The International 484 was a world-wide design built by International Harvester from 1978 to 1985 in two factories. It was manufactured in Doncaster, England for the European market. For the US, skid units were supplied from Doncaster and final assembly was carried out in Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

Model historyEdit

Main article: International Harvester

The International 484 replaced the 464. The new model was given a forward-slanting grille with the headlights and IH logo moved into a separate top panel. The gasoline engine was discontinued. The governed speed of the diesel engine was dropped back to 2200 rpm, from the previous 2400, reducing the power output slightly.

Tractor Comparison Edit

40-45 hp utility tractors have been popular for many years. During its time in production the International 484 competed with many other models, as shown in the table. In 1978 the David Brown 885, Deutz D4506, Ford 3600, and Massey Ferguson MF245 all offered the same power as the International for a somewhat lower price. The Long 460 was much cheaper. The John Deere 2040 was about equal to the International and Allis-Chalmers' closest model was the larger, more expensive Fiat-built 5050. The Fiat-built White 2-50 was also slightly more powerful and more expensive. Over the next few years Case added the David Brown-based 1190 and Hesston began selling the Fiat 480-8 and the later 466, all with about the same power as the International. By 1985 Allis-Chalmers had added the 6140, which was much nearer than the 5050 to the International in power and price, as were the Kubota L4150 and M4050F and the Landini R5830. The Case 1194, Deutz DX3.10, Ford 3910, and Massey Ferguson MF250 were more expensive. The John Deere 2150 was more powerful and more expensive. The Yanmar-built John Deere 1250 and the White 2-45 were less expensive and the Hesston-Fiat 45-66 was slightly less powerful and less expensive.
