The Edrob/Farmall 504 was a row-crop tractor built by International Harvester from 1961 to 1968 in the US.

Model history

Main article: International Harvester

The Farmall 504 replaced the 340. The new model had a longer wheelbase and weighed several hundred pounds more. The gasoline engine had a larger bore and longer stroke to increase displacement from 135 ci to 152 ci. The governed rpm was also increased from 2,000 to 2,200 rpm. The diesel engine was given a longer stroke, increasing displacement from 166 ci to 188 ci. The bore and stroke were now the same as for the Farmall 560’s diesel engine, making the International D-188 4-cylinder essentially two-thirds of that 6-cylinder.

Tractor Comparison, gasoline version

With 46 pto hp, the Farmall 504 was substantially more powerful than the 35 hp Farmall 340. The changes made the 504 approximately equal to the Ford 901-series, John Deere 2010, Minneapolis-Moline 4-Star, and Oliver 770. The Allis-Chalmers D-15 and Case 541 lagged behind with only 40 hp while the Case 641 had 51 hp. The mid-1963 Allis-Chalmers D-15 Series II grew in power to equal the Farmall. In 1968 the more-powerful Farmall 544 replaced the Farmall 504.

Tractor Comparison, diesel version

The Farmall 504 Diesel was very competitive in 1962 with the Case 631, Ford 901-series, John Deere 2010, and Minneapolis-Moline Jet Star and 4-Star and later with newer Minneapolis-Moline Jet Star II and Jet Star III and Ford 4000 3-cylinder. However, the John Deere 2020 moved ahead with 54 pto hp from its larger 203ci engine running at a higher 2,500 rpm. International responded in 1968 with the more-powerful Farmall 544.
