The International TD-12 was a diesel engined crawler tractor built by the International Harvester company from 1981 to 1982 in the USA.

Model historyEdit

For Company history, see International Harvester.

The 110 net hp International TD-12 was added to the International crawler line in 1981 to fill in the big gap that existed between the 78-hp TD-8E and the 140-hp TD-15C. The engine for the TD-12 was the 466 ci 6-cylinder diesel from the TD-15C without the turbocharger, although a lightly-boosted turbo version was available for high altitudes. The TD-12 also used a full power shift torque converter transmission with 3 speeds forward and 3 in reverse. The TD-12 competed with the Case 1150C, Caterpillar D-5B, and John Deere JD750. In 1982 International Harvester sold its construction equipment operations to Dresser Industries, which continued to build the TD-12.[1]
