The 10-20 resembled the McCormick-Deering 15-30 in appearance but was far smaller. It took the place of the International 8-16 thanks to its 2-plow rating. A 3 gear transmission was mated to a 284ci ohv 4-cylinder engine that was controlled at 1,000 rpm. The 10-20 saw a small boost in power in 1928 when the regulated rpm was raised to 1,025.
With its front-radiator automobile design, unit construction, light weight, 251 cc 4-cylinder engine, 3-speed transmission, and mass-production techniques to keep the price low, the 1918 Fordson turned the tractor industry upside down.
The sloped-hood International 8-16, which had the same size engine as the Fordson and a 3-speed transmission, was also introduced by International Harvester in 1918. However, it was significantly heavier.
Despite price reductions to make it more competitive, the International didn’t sell nearly as well as the Fordson. The McCormick-Deering 10-20 was International’s true Fordson-ғɪɢʜᴛer, which was unveiled in 1923. It was incredibly advanced. It sold for $785 and became popular right away. Up until 1939, the 10-20 was still in production. Sales decreased later on as the manufacturer released the more recent McCormick-Deering W-30.
