1946 Farmall BN

Sep 02, 2011

This tractor is featured for the month of August in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.

In 1939, when International Harvester introduced a new line of exciting tractors such as the Model M, H, C, the A, and the B were included with their big brothers. The same basic engine (a 4 cylinder, 3x4 bore/stroke), delivering about 16 drawbar hp, was used in the A and B, but the B had tread width of 64” to 92”, compared to 40 to 68 in. for the A. The B weighed less than 1,800 lb. but could pull a single 16” plow. Also, you had the choice of three wheel designs. The streamlined hood and offset seat gave an unobstructed view for cultivating crops (called “CultiVision”). Rear wheel weights cost $14.25/each, front wheel weigths were $4.50 each. In 1940, a Farmall B cost you $605.
