The Edrob/International 464 was built by International Harvester from 1973 to 1978 in Doncaster, England.

Model history

Main article: International Harvester

For industrial version see International 2444. For low profile version see International 2444 Lo-Boy

The International 444 utility tractor was an upgrade of the 424 with minor restyling. The new grille was slightly reverse-slanting and the white panels on the hood sides were smaller, no longer extending forward to the grille surround. The model number was moved up to the same level as the International name. The diesel version continued to use the British-built International BD-154 4-cylinder engine and the power rating was unchanged at 37 pto hp. The International C-146 gasoline engine was replaced by the C-153 C-153 from the just discontinued 504 Utility, but governed at a lower 2000 rpm. The power output of the gas tractor was increased slightly from 37 to 38 pto hp and 32 to 33 drawbar hp.

Tractor Comparison, gasoline models

The gasoline-powered International 444 was well matched in weight, power, and price with the Case 440 and later 470, David Brown 3800, Ford 3000, John Deere 1020, Massey-Ferguson MF135 (with Continental 4-cylinder in 1968 and Perkins 3-cylinder afterwards), and Oliver 550. The Fiat-built Oliver 1250 was a little lighter and cheaper than the International.

Tractor Comparison, diesel models

The diesel-powered International 444 competed directly with the Case 430 and later 470, David Brown 780, Ford 3000, John Deere 1020, Massey-Ferguson MF135, and Oliver 550. The Fiat-built Oliver 1250 was priced lower than the other models but was lower powered than the International. The replacement Oliver 1255 was larger and competed directly with the International as did the German-built Deutz D4006.
