Industrial Model International Harvester Posted by tim austin on 02/12/2013

Bought this well used IH238 at an auction. Came with 1850 loader. (Same as 2250 loader but not quick disconnect.) BD154 diesel engine. Has power steering, 3 point hitch, can put in reverse in any of 8 forward speeds (shuttle shift) Similar to IH 384 farm tractor except for 14.9 x 24 inch rear tires, 7.50 x 16 front tires and shuttle shift. Once I got the power steering, and brakes working and hydraulic leaks fixed it has been a great unit. Mainly used as a log skidder and to move dirt. Previous owner did not take care of tractor at all.
