IH 4386
Got this picture from the Elmia show in 1979, big US 4WD's were popular then. We got 2 of this type in our neigbourhood, one were traded to a CIH 4894 and the other I don't know, the owner leased out his farm a couple of years ago and I haven't heard what happened to the 4386.

Re: IH 4386
Where there in sweden a lot of farms big enough to need such a big tractor back then, Lennart?
Because you said that there were also some White and Case 4wds sold?

Einachser: in that time we hade some farms that were about 1000 ha, but there were a lot off farms with 200-500ha. Well not a lot. we used to have 85 ha in the 70's and that was pretty big. The common farm in the 70´s would have around 30-50 ha and about 20 cows.

Re: IH 4386
The farms in my area that bought this 4WD's in the 70's were 200-500 ha, one 1300 ha. Farming was very profitable in Sweden at that time so they could afford this tractors. Soil packing was not discussed at that time. Reversible plougs had not become common yet and no reduced tillage or combi seeding.

1990 when Swedish farm subsidies were reformed nearly all this farms stopped growing cereals and sold/stopped their 4WD's. Then 1995 when Sweden joined EG they started farming again, but at that time reversible ploughs and reduced tillage combined with Rapid-seeders, and bigger FWD's were available this monsters were set aside.
