The [[Farmall 544 Hi-Clear]] was based on the regular [[Farmall 544]] but with larger diameter tires and longer front spindles to provide several inches of additional crop clearance.
   
 
=== Tractor Comparison, gasoline version ===
 
=== 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.
+
Competing directly with the Farmall 544 Hi-Clear were the Allis-Chalmers One-Seventy High Clearance and John Deere 2510 HC. The John Deere 2520 HC, which replaced the 2510 HC, was a more powerful tractor. The Case 730CK High-Clearance was also a larger and more powerful tractor.

The Edrob/Farmall 544 Hi-Clear was a high clearance tractor built by International Harvester from 1968 to 1973 in the US.

Model historyEdit

Main article: International Harvester

For high clearance version with hydrostatic transmission see: Farmall 544 Hi-Clear Hydro. For regular row-crop version see: Farmall 544.

The Farmall 544 Hi-Clear was based on the regular Farmall 544 but with larger diameter tires and longer front spindles to provide several inches of additional crop clearance.

Tractor Comparison, gasoline version Edit

Competing directly with the Farmall 544 Hi-Clear were the Allis-Chalmers One-Seventy High Clearance and John Deere 2510 HC. The John Deere 2520 HC, which replaced the 2510 HC, was a more powerful tractor. The Case 730CK High-Clearance was also a larger and more powerful tractor.

Allis-Chalmers One-Seventy High Clearance 54 226 8

Tractor Comparison, diesel version Edit

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.
