The History of Farmall Tractors: 1940-1954

Learn how Farmall’s expansion into construction equipment developed alongside the manufacture of quality trucks and farm equipment.

These tractors used the same C-113 engine that IHC fitted into A- and B-series tractors. But running the engine at 1,650 rpm instead of 1,400, and increasing compression to 6.1:1 from 5.33:1, gave the C a few extra horsepower.
