Re: IH 684
Interesting picture. Do you know where these tractors
are built ? Are they mechanicaly the same as the IH 684
built in Doncaster, England ? The mud guards and bonet are
different and so are the rear wheels but the tractor looks a
similar size.
Re: IH 684

I believe I don't know the answer to that question off hand,
I will have to consult one of my IH books to give you a
definitive answer. If you are interested in the specs, an
excellent link for all IH tractors is
Re: IH 684
Thanks for the link, it was very interesting. From the
specifications it seems to be basically the same. The
horsepower ratings are a little different to the uk figures
ive got, but i think thats just cross atlantic variation !
I'm still intigued as to whether its a British built export
tractor or built over your way. The tractors sold here all
has a safety cab as standard.
Thanks again
Re: IH 684
Hey Owain,

Yeah that link is pretty useful, I will check and see if I
can find where the 684 was built, one my IH books should
specify. Unfortunately I don't keep them in the office.

Take care
Re: IH 684

as I know all 684s were built in Doncaster, UK with the same
D-239 Diesel engine from Neuss, Germany and the same basic 8
+ 4 transmission plus the optional two speed powershift.

In Europe Series 84 was suceeded by Series 85 in 1982 with
the XL cab as a new option while Series 84 was still built
for overseas markets and continued to be sold in the US
until 1985 with a different safety cab (optional). Only the
385 was sold in the US since 1982 because the little 384
(with 8 + 2 transmission) was no longer available after
Bradford plant in the UK was shut down.

Older models like 454, 574 and 674 were built in Doncaster,
UK as well as in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Petrol engines
were only available in the US and also produced there, while
Diesel engines were shipped to Louisville from Neuss and
transmissions from Doncaster.

Best regards
