The International 2544 was an industrial tractor built by International Harvester from 1968 to 1973 in the USA.

Model historyEdit

Main article: International Harvester

For hydrostatic transmission model see: International 2544 Hydro. For regular utility model see: International 544.

The International 2544, a heavy-duty industrial version of the 544 utility, replaced the 2504 industrial. The International C-200 4-cylinder gas engine replaced the old C-153 and the D-239 diesel replaced the D-188.

Tractor Comparison, gasoline version Edit

The gasoline-powered International 2544 competed directly with the John Deere JD400 and JD401, Massey Fergusom MF30, and the improved Ford 4400 introduced in 1969. The 1968 Ford 4400 and the nearest models from Allis-Chalmers, Minneapolis-Moline, and Oliver all had less power than the International.

Tractor Comparison, diesel version Edit

As with the gasoline-powered version, the diesel International 2544 competed directly with the John Deere JD400 and JD401, Massey Fergusom MF30 (and earlier MF3165), and the improved Ford 4400 introduced in 1969. The diesel-powered Oliver 770 Industrial also had about the same power as the International. The 1968 Ford 4400 and the nearest models from Allis-Chalmers and Minneapolis-Moline had less power than the International.
