The Industrial 3010
Officially called the "3010 Wheel"
Built 1961-1963

While shown at the big introduction of New Generation series in 1960, the 3010 Wheel wasn't actually produced until January of 1961. There were no crawler versions of the 3010 Industrial produced, although there was an experimental crawler built.

Here is a list of the differences of the Industrial version:
  • Cast iron nose frame, for increased weight and protection of the fuel tank
  • Sheet metal made with 10 gauge steel
  • Industrial style grill, flat
  • Frame
    • Rails larger and stronger
    • Holes drilled in different pattern from agricultural versions
    • Frame made with 6 inch C-channel steel
    • Frame extends farther back onto transmission case than ag versions
  • Tread size fixed
  • Larger rear axle housings, with better bearings and axles
  • Heavier Front axle
  • Steering-Uses frame mounted hydraulic cylinders, not motor
  • Two lever gear shifting
    • Right lever shift through all gears
    • Left lever shift through high-low-reverse ranges
    • Left lever located at original position of rockshaft lever
  • Rockshaft lever relocated to right side of seat
There were the normal options of Gas or Diesel engines. Liquid Propane was not used on the industrial tractors, for certain reasons-it would be like having a bomb in front of you! All the other hydraulic and hitch options (three point hitch, etc) were available. Most were not needed for industrial use. Often, the PTO was left off as well.

With all of the heavier parts, the 3010 Wheel could outweigh the agricultural versions by 1000-2000 pounds.
