The Titan Type D was built by International Harvester from 1911 to 1914 in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA factory.

Model History Edit

For Company history, see International Harvester.

In 1910, the Milwaukee factory produced the Reliance Type D in 20, 25, and 45-hp versions. In 1911 these models were renamed Titan Type D. The 20-hp Titan used the same Famous engine as the IHC Type A and IHC Type B 20-HP models built in the Akron and Upper Sandusky plants at the same time and the Mogul Type C 20-HP built in Milwaukee. The Titan Type D 25-HP used the same single-cylinder engine as the Mogul Type C 25-HP also built in the Milwaukee Works. The Titan Type D 45-HP continued on with the 2-cylinder engine designed for the 1910 Reliance 45-HP. In 1912 the 2-cylinder 2-speed Type D 18-35 was added to the range between the 25-hp and 45-hp models. In 1914 the 45-HP was fitted with a new cellular radiator and fan and renamed the Titan 30-60. In 1915 the Type D 20-HP was dropped and the much smaller Titan 12-25 4-cylinder more or less replaced the Type D 25-HP. The Titan 12-25 was soon renamed Titan 15-30

For 1916 a new smaller tractor, the 2-cylinder Titan 10-20, was added at the bottom of the line. The phenomenal sales success of the Fordson tractor and the fact that most US farms were small acreages ended the reign of the heavyweight tractors. From 1918 all the heavyweight Titan tractors were discontinued and the only model left was the little 10-20, which stayed in production through 1922 and was the main weapon in International Harvester's sales battle with Fordson.
