    1961 International 4300 4WD Tractor

    Albert Jensen and his fully restored 1961 International 4300 four wheel drive tractor. The tractor essentially was ‘ahead of its time’ as there were no 300 horsepower 4 wheel drives around. Only about 300 units were ever built and sold as farmers in the early 60’s just weren’t ready for that kind of horsepower on most farms. At the time of our visit. Jensen said he was only aware of 3 such units in Canada.
