Allis-Chalmers D-19 vs. IHC Farmall Regular


Allis-Chalmers D-19

Allis-Chalmers was by not means the first company to offer a diesel tractor. But AC diesel-powered tractors set themselves apart of the competition in the 1960s by offering machines that delivered hard working horsepower over a wider torque range. To boost performance even further, Allis engineers equipped their Model D-19 (introduced in 1916) with a turbocharger, marking it as the first such tractor to feature charged air compression on the market.



IHC Farmall Regular

The Farmall was not the first tractor to feature the now famous tri-cycle design. Nor was it the first attempt at an all-purpose tractor; a machine as accustomed to cultivating row crops as it was plowing or powering a thresher. But Farmall was the tractor that put both concepts to practical application and commercial success. And for its impact on tractor engineering – let alone the improvement in quality of life for farmers – the Farmall stands atop the pile of the world’s greatest tractors.
