The Edrob/Farmall 544 was a utility tractor built by International Harvester from 1961 to 1968 in the US.

Model history

Main article: International Harvester

For row-crop utility version see: International 504 Hi-Clear. For industrial model see: International 2504. For row crop model see: Farmall 504.

Farmall 44-Series 4-Cylinder Row Crop (1968) The International Farmall 44-series replaced the McCormick Farmall 04-series in 1968.

Farmall 544 (1968) The International Farmall 544 was about 1,200 lb heavier than the previous McCormick Farmall 504. New engines moved it up from the 3-4 plow 45-hp class to the full 4-plow 55-hp class. A new 200ci C200 gas engine, derived from the C301 6-cylinder of the Farmall 856, replaced the old C153. The available diesel engine was a new German International-built D239 4-cylinder, replacing the American-built D188. As before, the main transmission was a 5-speed and a 2-speed Torque Amplifier was available. Larger 13.6-38 standard rear tires helped put the increased power to the ground and dual rears were available.

In 1968 the gasoline-powered Farmall 544 competed directly in power, weight, and price with the Allis-Chalmers One-Seventy, John Deere 2510, and Minneapolis-Moline U302. The A-C and Minnie-Mo used larger, lower-speed, engines and the John Deere had a smaller, higher-speed, engine. The 6-cylinder Oliver 1550 was quite a bit heavier. The Case 741 model (in the 730 series) was also heavier, with its big 4-cylinder engine, and somewhat more powerful. In 1969 the upgraded 3-cylinder Ford 4000 approached the power of the Farmall. The mid-1969 Oliver 1555 was nearly unchanged from the 1550. The 1970 Case 770 replaced the 741 with little change in basic specifications. The competitive situation for the diesel-powered models was basically the same, but with some additional models in the mix. In 1969 Oliver offered the Fiat-built 1355. In 1971 it was turned into the 1365, with the engine size increased from 190 to 211ci. Minneapolis-Moline sold the same tractor as its G450. Also in 1971 the German Deutz D5506 air-cooled 4-cylinder tractor competed with the Farmall.


Tractor Comparison, gasoline version

When International Harvester brought out the 504 utility, the gasoline version competed directly with the Ford 801-series and the replacement 4000. The Case 540, Massey Ferguson MF65, and Oliver 550 were lighter, lower powered, and cheaper. The Case 640 and the standard-tread Oliver 770 had more power. When the John Deere 2010 utility came out, it also competed directly with the International, as did the Massey Ferguson MF165. The John Deere 2020, which replaced the 2010, moved up a power class, where it competed better with the Oliver 770. In 1968 the International 544 replaced the 504 and moved up to the same class as the John Deere 2020.

Tractor Comparison, diesel version

Competing with the International 504 were several other diesel-powered utility tractors in the 46 pto hp range: the Case 630, Ford 4000 3-cylinder, John Deere 2010U, Massey Ferguson MF65, and Zetor 4011. The Ford 801-series and 4-cylinder 4000, Long BMC Nuffield, Nuffield 10/42 and 3/45, Oliver 550 and 600, and Ursus C350 were all less powerful. The David Brown 990, John Deere 2020U, Massey Ferguson MF165, and Zetor 5511 were all slightly heavier and more powerful. Also competing to some extent with the International were the taller, heavier, Cockshutt 560, Fordson Super Major and Ford Super Major 5000, Nuffield 4/60 and 10/60, and Oliver 770 and 1550.
