So you are interested in International tractors.  You'll find International Tractors history below, as well as used
International tractors and parts available right now on-line.  You can bid on them and get a better deal than at  a retail
parts or lawn equipment store.
International tractors began
through experimentation in 1905
by the McCormick Harvesting
Machine Company after merging
with several other companies and
forming into the International
Harvester Company.

International tractors were large,
powerful and were very useful for
large farming.  International
Harvester tractors did not work
well for the smaller farmer,
however. Eventually,
International tractors offered the
Mogul 8-16 and it sold quite well.
International Harvester continued
to improve their smaller tractors
with several models. The famous
letter series International tractors
began being produced in 1939.

International produced many
tractors and became one of the
largest manufacturers of farm
tractors in the world.  They
eventually decided to capitalize
on their smaller tractor success
by launching an even smaller line
of lawn and garden tractors in
1961, called the
Cub Cadet.  

In 1984 International Harvester
was purchased by Tenneco and
today is part of the
Case
Corporation.
