This Farmall BN was one of a pair we purchased from the Harrow Family of Christchurch and used on their berry farm. They had purchased them new. Used mainly for spraying and working between the rows of raspberries.
When the farm was sold in the early 1990’s there were put into storage (the back of the hayshed).
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
