The International B275 was built by International Harvester at the former Jowett car factory in Idle, Bradford, England. It was imported into the USA from 1959 to 1961 where it was known as the McCormick International B-275. Some were also built under license by IH's joint venture in India, Mahindra Tractors.

In the UK they had McCormick on the badges but they are generally Referred to as the International B275 The model number being hyphenated in the roundel on the bonnet sides but not generally when described in print articles. (very inconsistent & confusing).

Model History in USA Edit

The McCormick International B-275 was imported from England where it was built by International Harvester Great Britain. While International Harvester’s American-made tractors of the 1950s used the McCormick brand name for row-crop models and International for standard-tread and utility wheel tractors and crawlers, the B-275 used both names, with McCormick in small letters and International in larger letters. The B-275 was roughly the size and weight of the International 340 Utility but was a totally different British design. The engine was the British built International BD-144 engine a 143ci 4-cylinder diesel. The tractor had a dual-range 8-speed transmission and a differential lock, not normally available on American tractors at the time.


Tractor Comparison, USA models Edit

The McCormick International B-275 seemed to offer the best value in its class (30 pto hp diesel-powered utility tractors), offering 33 hp for a $2755 in 1961. The Fordson Dexta, also imported from England, was very close, with 31 hp for $2950. As shown in the table, all of the other makes ranged upward in power and/or price.
