Tractor Info


Oliver 1955 tractors, like most other Oliver models, used a six-cylinder diesel engine. Four styles of Row-Crop tractors were built, plus Wheatland, Ricefield, and four-wheel drive models. Closed center hydraulics were another feature, along with the choice of Category II or Category III three-point hitch systems. Hydraulic triple disc brakes were featured, as was a hydralically operated pto shaft. With the Over/Under Hydraul-Shift, the 1955 offered eighteen forward speeds, and with the Oliver Hydra-Power drive, twelve different speeds were available. Standard equipment included power steering. Nebraska Test No. 1055 was run on the Oliver 1955 tractor in October 1970. This test revealed a maximum output of 108 pto horsepower. The 310 cubic inch, six-cylinder engine used a 3 7/8 x 4 3/8 inch bore and stroke. Rated speed was 2,400 rpm. Although the four-wheel-drive option was built with a fixed tread, the wheels could be switched for a tread width of 66 or 70 3/4 inches; with the use of spacers this could be extended to 80 inches. A factory option was the no-spin differential which operated automatically to reduce front wheel spin-out.
