Thought I'd start a thread to share pictures or where anyone can ask questions about IH and Case tractors/machines, random chats or stories relating to these are welcome also.

Some pics of our extended family's tractors, most of which have already appeared in Classics earning their Keep, to get us started.

I don't own any IH tractors but I did work at main IH dealer from 1976-80 and I remember a lot that went on even after all these years !!
Now then I don't want to put a spoiler on things what will be an interesting topic but there is a photo of a 474 on
an R plate making it 1976-77
The 474 was replaced by the Perkins
engine 475 in 1975

This anomaly was flagged up on the classics earning their keep thread as well, it's the plate off a 674 that's on the 474 :censored: ;)

the 574 has been in the family all it’s life and went into retirement about 5 years ago when it had a respray.
The 844 has also been here since it was new in 1991 and is now waiting some cosmetic work and a few other jobs so that it can come back to work.

The 1255 was purchased last year as a project. Bloody lovely tractor... it’s identical to the one we had back in the day!
