The Design and Development of the International Series 88 Tractors 790812
The International Series 88 represent a new concept in four-wheel drive agricultural tractors. The operator, being located on the rear half of these articulated tractors, is provided good visibility and feel of rear mounted implements, and a view of the front wheels for accurate guidance in row crops. Many high volume components in production for two-wheel drive tractors were incorporated in these new machines.
An extensive field evaluation proved the concept to be right and led to a successful marketing approach. A coordinated design, development and test program met the challenge of the new vehicle design.
