This tractor was purchased new by the Harrow Family of
Christchurch and used on their berry farm. Used mainly for
spraying and working between the rows of raspberries.
When the farm was sold in the early 1990’s it was put into storage.
Purchased in January 2001 and restoration completed in Nov 01.
The BN is similar to the A, B & AV models. The N is for Narrow
as this model is eight inches narrower than the B. It retains the offset
seating position known as ‘Cultivision’.
IHC produced over 220000 of these four models with only 14967
being the BN style. There are very few of this model in New Zealand
