I have a Case 2090 and a 2290. Same tractors except the 2290 has a turbo. The next sizes up from the 2090 and 2290 in the series are bigger and heavier. I think the 2090 and 2290 are a pretty nice size and weight for doing a wide range of activities. Either of them easily pull a 25 foot field cultivator or disk, or a 13 foot disk chisel. You can tell the 2290 has more power with the turbo - maybe a gear faster. I like the 2090 for planting with an 8 row, no-till planter with 3000 lbs. of dry fertilizer. I keep the 2290 in its duals and the 2090 in singles. They really need weight on the rear to pull. The 2290 is loaded with fluid and the 2090 only has 2 weights on each rear wheel. I haven't had much of any problem with either. I try not to abuse the power shift in the 2090 to avoid major repairs. I use it, but only when necessary and I don't push it to the max. 2290 has an 8 speed transmission - no power shift. I like it for that fact. They are getting old enough that it is hard to keep the air conditioner running. I think they ride a little rougher due to the shorter wheel base. Going down the road my International's ride much smoother. I think some have moved the front axle forward on the 2090's and 2290's to get a smoother ride. Hope you have the same experience with your Cases's as I have. Good luck.
