Here is my 200th post after almost two years on Trek Earth. This old tractor looks brand new despite the fact it is 56 years of age. It was probably perfectly restored. I can compare it with the fact that after 2 years and 200 posts, I still like Trek Earth as the first days. It is a good source of motivation to take picture and to keep learning. Thanks to all members for the many critiques, tips and comments all over the past two years.
The Farmall was the name of a tractor and later a brand name for tractors manufactured by International Harvester.
Development began around the start of the 1920s, and the new tractor design was introduced in prototype form in 1923. In 1932 IH introduced an updated Farmall with a more powerful engine, which received the designation F-20. The F-20 replaced the original Farmall, which became known by the retronym Regular (after the introduction of the F-20). IH also added other new tractors to the brand, which became known as the F-series. These included the F-30 (1931), the F-12 (1932), and the F-14 (1938). All Farmall tractors were painted battleship gray until the mid-1930s, when a decision was made to change to a new color, 'Farmall Red'.
By 1973, IH had officially dropped the 'Farmall' name from its new tractor models. The announcement ended an era that began with the first Farmall Regular back in 1924.
On February 1, 1974, at 9:00 A.M., the 5,000,000th IH tractor came off the assembly line at the Farmall Works plant in Rock Island, Illinois. IH was the first tractor manufacturer to accomplish this.

Voici ma 200ime aprs presque deux ans sur Trek Earth. Ce vieux tracteur semble tout neuf malgr ses 56 ans. Il a probablement t parfaitement restor. Je peux le comparer au fait quaprs 2 ans et 200 photos, j'apprcie toujours Trek Earth comme les premiers jours. C'est une bonne source de motivation pour prendre des photos et pour continuer mon apprentissage. Merci tous les membres pour les nombreuses critiques, astuces et commentaires depuis les deux dernires annes.

Farmall tait le nom d'un tracteur et plus tard le nom dune marque pour des tracteurs construits par International Harvester.

Le dveloppement a commenc autour du dbut des annes 20, et la nouvelle conception de tracteur a t prsente sous la forme de prototype en 1923. En 1932 International Harvester prsente un Farmall mis jour avec un moteur plus puissant, qui a reu la dsignation F-20. Le F-20 a remplac le Farmall original. International Harvester a galement ajout d'autres nouveaux tracteurs la marque, qui sont devenue notoire comme la srie F. Celles-ci sont F-30 (1931), F-12 (1932), et F-14 (1938). Tous les tracteurs de Farmall taient gris cuirass jusqu'au milieu des annes 30, quand une dcision a t prise pour changer en une nouvelle couleurrouge.

En 1973, International Harvester avait officiellement laiss tomber le Farmall . L'annonce a marqu la fin dune re qui avait commenc en 1924.
