IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED BUY A FARMALL – The Farmall M depicted on this sign is one of the larger tractors in the Farmall letter series, capable of pulling a three or four bottom plow. Production began in 1939 and continued until 1952 when it was replaced with the Super M. The diesel MD was added to the lineup in 1941 and cost one and a half times as much as the gasoline M. Affectionately called the “Big brother to the Model H”, it had the same frame and layout of the Model H so that mountable implements were interchangeable.
The Farmall M was most popular with large-acreage row-crop farmers. It was powered by either a high-compression gas engine or a distillate version with lower compression. Options included the Lift-All hydraulic system, a belt pulley, PTO, rubber tires, starter, lights and a swinging drawbar. It could be ordered in the high-crop, wide-front or tricycle configurations. The high-crop version was called a Model MV.
Farmall was a model name and later a brand name for tractors manufactured by the American company International Harvester (IH). The Farmall name was usually presented as McCormick-Deering Farmall and later McCormick Farmall in the evolving brand architecture of IH.
Farmalls were general-purpose tractors. Their origins were as row-crop tractors, a category that they helped establish and in which they long held a large market share. During the decades of Farmall production (1920s to 1970s), most Farmalls were built for row-crop work, but many orchard, fairway, and other variants were also built. Most Farmalls were all-purpose tractors that were affordable for small to medium-sized family farms and could do enough of the tasks needed on the farm that the need for hired hands was reduced and the need for horses or mules was eliminated. Thus Farmall was a prominent brand in the 20th-century trend toward the mechanization of agriculture in the US.
Enjoying a production run that spread out over 14 years, over 290,000 of these machines were produced. Around 1940, the cost of the Farmall M was around $1,100. The cost of the Farmall MD was around $1,700.

Important note about images we provide : Just as we sometimes see that “pricing is subject to change without notice”, so too are “designs subject to change without notice”. In 99.99% of cases, what you see on Dixie’s website or brochure is what you get. However, there are the odd times when designs have changed in some small way (eg: maybe a logo moves to a different location on the item, or the colour changes). Sometimes this information doesn’t always trickle down until the new designs are manufactured and shipped to Dixie. We hope this is helpful and understandable.
