544 International Posted by Andrew Hoffmeister on 08/10/2012

Bought this tractor with 72" Bush Hog type loader w/ nose powered hydraulic pump. Standard type 5-forward, 1-reverse manual transmission. C-200 gas engine, converted to electronic ignition, Delco-Remy type distributor. Runs great, but parts are getting to be hard to acquire regardless of whether new, remanufactured, or used.

It's a good acreage tractor. Due to compact wheelbase, rear end needs counterweights for front end loader. Hour meter was broken when purchased and factory type meter/tach will not be replaced.
