I was wondering if anyone knows the production numbers for farmall chisholm ryder tractors. I just picked up a Farmall 340 that was a Chisholm Ryder tractor. The serial number is 6?? and another number on the tag is SY-CR-6??

Thanks

Jay: To start with it is not Chisholm Ryder but rather Chism Ryder. They bought tractors from IH as well as other companies. Each tractor will have it's own ID as well as a Chism Ryder ID.

How many you ask, I doubt if IH kept any better records of how many Chism Ryder bought, than they did of how many I bought. I bought 16 new Farmalls. Why not do a google search, see what Chism Ryder have to say.

I strongly disagree Hugh. I have 2 bean harvesters that clearly say Chisholm Ryder on both sides. I began to question my own memory, so I just went outside to check, clearly Chisholm. I agree that it is pronounced Chism, but do a google search, there is no such thing.

Hugh, I`m not trying to start a war over spelling, but harvesterguy is right. I`ve seen quite a few of these over the years and it`s definitely Chisholm Ryder.Try googling it with that spelling .Cant recall ever seeing a Chism Ryder,though.Mark

A Chisholm-Ryder is basically a hi-clear Farmall 504(?) or similar tractor modified to operate a C-R built mounted string bean harvester. Most were painted kinda yellowish-green and white. However I've seen at least one painted traditional Farmall red. All sported prominent "Chisholm-Ryder" decals on the hood sides.

There's still several C-R's earning their keep on a couple local farms here. However now they carry spray equipment instead of bean pickers.

It is Chisholm Ryder. A number were used in the Mississippi Delta around Lake Washington during the late 60's and early 70's. I sold three Farmall 504 HC's and then three Farmall 656 Hydro HC's to a local manufacturer who made its own bean pickers which were a vertual copy of the Chisholm Ryder bean pickers.

Bob , Ive seen Chisholm Ryder conversions on a 230,340HC`s and 656HC`s and I`m sure they used many other IH`s as well.

Here's a red and white Chisholm-Ryder/Farmall 504. I seem to recall seeing a C-R/Farmall 460 once too.

Mark: If you google either Chism Ryder or Chisholm Ryder, one comes up with same harvesters.

Google ends up translating it to Chisholm Ryder to try to match what you typed in. It is infact Chisholm Ryder as others have stated. At any rate you all mean the same thing.

These High Clear tractors I sold were special ordered with: IPTO, no 3 point hitch, no hydraulic rockshaft, 17 gpm hydraulic pump, three auxiliary valves, and industrial yellow paint. After the hydrostatic drive 656's were introduced by IHC, the F504HC's were traded in on the F656HC Hydros in order to get more power and more speed control. The F656HC Hydro's were installed under the same shop made pickers. We sold the F504HC trade in's locally to be used as spray tractors. I don't know what happened to the F656HC Hydros as they left the area still mounted under the pickers, when the local area stopped raising eatable beans.

T.C.: Truth is when this clan left Scotland they were Chisholm's. I come from New Scotland, aka Nova Scotia, and in parts on eastern Nova Scotia the name Chisholm probably represents 30% of phone book listings. They damn well, will not tolerate one pronouncing it Chism. Clearly I grew up knowing it was Chis-Holm, and if in right company one damn well got corrected in a hurry for saying something like Chism.

The name Chism as I know it came from a John Wayne movie, with "Chism Trail" forming part of the title. Upon inspection of a map, I found Chism Trail to be in western USA. I expect some old Chisholm guy made his way west in the early 1800s, probably illiterate, made himself some money, probably became famous, probably learned to read and write, thus put his own spelling on Chisholm.

Like you say, what difference, we know they are all Clan Chisholm. By the way, what I picked up on google was a discussion on Red Power forum, those guys were calling it Chism, and no translation. Who amoung us would ever question those RED POWER guys.

From everything i've seen so far, the tractors should just have Chisholm Ryder on the hood instead of Farmall. Mine just has the PTO and 3 hydraulic valves, but the bean picker was taken off and probably scrapped years ago. My main inquiry is does anyone know how many 340 hi crops either Farmall or Chisholm Ryder were made?
