You can’t argue with history. Initial sales were somewhere around 20,000 units and dropped all the way down to around 5,000 units after the rear ends started shelling out. And the sales never fully recovered. Throw in the tent city recall and the 560’s reputation gets tarnished. And it didn’t help that the 4010 came out right afterwards.
I wouldn’t say the 560 was one of the worst tractors ever built as IH did fix them. But the 560 should go on a list titled something like top 10 tractors that did the most damage to their company.
