The International 424 utility tractor was built by International Harvester from 1964 to 1967, with partial manufacture in Doncaster, England and final assembly in Louisville, Kentucky, USA, and under license by IH's joint venture in India, Mahindra Tractors.

Model historyEdit

Main article: International Harvester

For industrial version see International 2424. For LCG (low center-of-gravity) version see International 2424 Lo-Boy

The International 424 replaced the International B414 in the US. The new model was still partially built in Doncaster, England but it was styled like American models, with a new grille made up of fine vertical and horizontal bars. The chassis was shipped to the US as a "skid unit" and assembly was completed in the Louisville, Kentucky factory. The gasoline version was shipped without an engine and the C-146 engine was fitted in the US. The C-146 was apparently based on the C-135 engine of the International 404 Utility tractor but with a 1/8" longer stroke to increase the displacement.

Tractor Comparison, gasoline models Edit

When it was introduced in mid 1964 the gasoline-powered 424 competed directly on weight, power, and price with the Case 440, John Deere 1010, and Massey-Ferguson MF135. The Ford 4-cylinder 2000 was slightly smaller and less powerful. The Oliver 550 was slightly more powerful. By 1967 the newer 3-cylinder Ford 3000 and John Deere 1020 and the Fiat-built Oliver 1250 were close matches for the International.

Tractor Comparison, diesel models Edit

In 1964 the International 424 was a close match in the hotly-contested small diesel utility class with the Case 430, Cockshutt 550 (built by Oliver), Fiat 411R, Ford 2000, Fordson Super Dexta, John Deere 1010, Massey-Ferguson MF135, and Oliver 550. The David Brown 880 was slightly heavier, more powerful, and more expensive. New competitors that matched the International by 1967 included the 3-cylinder Ford 3000 and John Deere 1020 and the Fiat-built Oliver 1250.
