The Farmall 504 was a row-crop tractor built by International Harvester from 1961 to 1968 in the USA.

Model historyEdit

Main article: International Harvester

For high-clearance version see: Farmall 504 Hi-Clear. For utility version see International 504. For row-crop utility version see: International 504 Hi-Clear

The Farmall 504 replaced the 340. The new model had a longer wheelbase and weighed several hundred pounds more. The gasoline engine had a larger bore and longer stroke to increase displacement from 135 ci to 152 ci. The governed rpm was also increased from 2,000 to 2,200 rpm. The diesel engine was given a longer stroke, increasing displacement from 166 ci to 188 ci. The bore and stroke were now the same as for the Farmall 560’s diesel engine, making the International D-188 4-cylinder essentially two-thirds of that 6-cylinder.

Tractor Comparison, gasoline version Edit

With 46 pto hp, the Farmall 504 was substantially more powerful than the 35 hp Farmall 340. The changes made the 504 approximately equal to the Ford 901-series, John Deere 2010, Minneapolis-Moline 4-Star, and Oliver 770. The Allis-Chalmers D-15 and Case 541 lagged behind with only 40 hp while the Case 641 had 51 hp. The mid-1963 Allis-Chalmers D-15 Series II grew in power to equal the Farmall. In 1968 the more-powerful Farmall 544 replaced the Farmall 504.

Tractor Comparison, diesel version Edit

The Farmall 504 diesel was very competitive in 1961-62 with the Case 631, Ford 901-series and 4000, John Deere 2010, Massey Ferguson MF65, and Minneapolis-Moline 4-Star. Allis-Chalmers bracketed the Farmall with the smaller, less powerful D-15 and considerably larger D-17. The Oliver 770 was slightly heavier, more powerful, and expensive and it was eventually replaced by the still more powerful 1550. In mid-1968 International replaced the Farmall 504 with the more powerful 544, which competed with the Oliver 1550 as well as the John Deere 2510 and Allis-Chalmers One-Seventy.
