Model History Edit

Main article: International Harvester

For high-clearance model see: McCormick Farmall Super AV-1 For industrial version see: International Super A-1

Introduced in late 1947, the McCormick Farmall Super A was an upgrade of the Farmall A with more standard equipment, adding to its weight. The Super A was mechanically identical to the A except for a slightly higher compression ratio that gave it slightly more power. One of the main features of the Super A was the "Touch-Control" hydraulic system. The Super A ushered in a whole range of “Super” tractors for International Harvester.
