Tractor Comparison, 2WD Edit

The International 383 was the least expensive 2WD 40-hp class utility offered by a major manufacturer. The Ford 2610 had about the same power and weight but was priced about $2500 higher. All of the other small utilities developed a few more hp and cost about $2500-5000 more, except for the Romanian-built Long 460, which was based on an outdated Fiat design and cost much less.

Tractor Comparison, 4WD Edit

The International 383 4WD was in something of a class by itself, with 37 pto hp. All of the contemporary small 4WD utilities sold in the USA developed 41-44 hp and cost $3000-6000 more, except for the Romanian-built Long 460DT, which was priced $1600 lower.
