The International T-5 series was made up of two compact crawler tractors built by the International Harvester company's Canadian branch from 1959 to 1960 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada and Melrose Park, Illinois, USA.
The International T-5 series compact crawlers were built by International Harvester of Canada. They were different in design from the U.S.-built [[International T-340 series|T-340 series], with smaller dimensions and a lower profile. The T-340s were built for industrial purposes as well as agricultural while the T-5s (and slightly smaller T-4) were mainly designed for agricultural use, especially in orchards.
The T-5 was the very similar to the T-4, with the same dimensions but a slightly higher weight. The engine was the slightly larger 135 ci four from the T-340, adding 3 more pto hp and 3 more drawbar hp. The TD-5 was the diesel version of the T-5, with the British International BD-144 engine, as used in the McCormick International B-275, but set at a higher rpm.
