The Edrob/International T-6 was a gasoline engined crawler tractor built by the International Harvester company from 1940 to 1956.

Model historyEdit

For Company history, see International Harvester.

The International T-6 was a new small crawler for International, following the styling theme introduced earlier on the TD-18. The T-6 was larger and more powerful than the unstyled T-20 it replaced, and had a 5-speed instead of 3-speed transmission. The T-6 shared the 248 ci 4-cylinder gasoline engine and 5-speed transmission of the McCormick-Deering Farmall M and W-6. The original T-6 and the TD-6 diesel were in production from 1940-56.

The T-6 competed with the Allis-Chalmers M, Caterpillar R-2, and Cletrac AG-4. All of these tractors were rated at 3-4 plow. The T-6 was the same physical size as the Caterpillar R-2, but heavier and more powerful, with a 248 ci engine vs. Caterpillar’s 221 ci.
