What Am I?

Working up on the forest today, I came across this little fellow Here. Its being(been) used by a trail riding outfit to shuffle around the dirt under their temporary paddocks I suppose. Got a scraper blade on the rear. No markings other than "International", and obviously in pretty rough shape. I assume its one of the number series from the 60's. Just curious.

Looks like a B275 to me :D Maybe even at B250. Made in Britain.

The B series was going to be my guess too. IH built a bunch of utility tractors in the late 1960s and early 1970s, most of them had little identifying tags or numbers, for some reason, and were just sold as utility tractors.

Did you offer to take it with you and give it a good home?

Looks like the right rear tire needs turned around when they replace the missing one. :lol:

It's a B275, the B250s didn't have the screen in the side of the hood. The white circle on the fuel tank would have been the model decal.

If they use the blade to push (going backward) rather than pulling, the tire would be right.

I'm waiting until I get my current tractor up and running before considering getting a second...then there's the issue of storage...

I'm not sure what the deal with the reversed tread is, it looks like the blade is mounted for forward operation, but who knows. I figured those circles might hold the key to its ID, but they're both worn away pretty badly, nothing to see anymore in them.
