The Edrob/Farmall 544 was a row crop tractor built by International Harvester from 1968 to 1973 in the US.

Model history

Main article: International Harvester

For high clearance version see: Farmall 544 Hi-Clear. For utility model see: International 544. For row crop utility model see: International 544 Row Crop. For industrial model see: International 2544. For models with hydrostatic transmission see: Farmall 544 Hydro, Farmall 544 Hi-Clear Hydro, International 544 Hydro, International 544 Row Crop Hydro, and International 2544 Hydro.

The International Farmall 544 was about 1,000 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 200 ci C-200 4-cylinder gas engine, derived from the C-301 6-cylinder of the Farmall 856, replaced the old C-153 four. The available diesel engine was a new German International-built D-239 4-cylinder, replacing the American-built D-188. 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 optional.

Tractor Comparison, gasoline version

The gasoline-powered Farmall 544 competed directly in power, weight, and price with the Allis-Chalmers One-Seventy, Ford 4000 Row Crop, John Deere 2510 RC (row crop), Minneapolis-Moline U302 Super Row Crop, and Oliver 1550 Row Crop. The Case 730CK Row Crop was heavier and more powerful. The John Deere 2520 RC, which replaced the 2510 RC, was also more powerful. The Massey-Ferguson MF165 Row Crop, essentially a raised utility tractor, also competed with the Farmall 544.

Tractor Comparison, diesel version

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.
