Yeah, what Don said! Also, if you liked your 30 series tractors you'll love the 70 series. Ease of steering and good brakes makes them nice operating tractors.

Thanks to both of you who responded , for your views.Ours were straight 8 speeds and that is what I would rather stick with. I understand why none of the others posted as sometimes it just causes a pi$$in match of varied oppinions and hard feelings. Any more info I need , I will get another way. Again , thanks to the two of you. RB

Sorry you feel the way you do. Your question was very vague. The 1170 and 1175 were distinctly different tractors in the Case 70 series lineup. as were the 12-1570's. The only 75 series Case tractor built was the 1175, which was a lighter built 1170. (mainly the monsterous front axle on the 1170 was replaced with a standard 70 series axle. the 1170 also had external disc brakes which were unique to it and the 1090 tractor, unique to it'self. Both 11's had outboard planitarys to handle the extra HP and torque from a 451 Turbo engine. All the 7-1070 series had standard bullgear rears powered by either the 8spd or the 12spd RPS34 trans. Both 11's were 8spd with mechanical clutch. The 12-1570 were a totally different tractor. The tranny was rotated 90 degrees so what used to be the top then became the RH side of the trans and diff. With the abundent horsepower fron the turbocharged 451 and 504 engines, these tractors were designed with inboard planitaries and brakes and offered a 1000rpm pto only.
My point here is that you asked a question which encompased a broad variety of Case tractor designs and each design had it's good and bad points. When you get a specific model in mind,post back and we can answer your question in detail.

Thanks,ACG , that is exactly what kind of info I wanted. I know my Q was vague as I stated in my original post it was a "wide open question". I don't feel any animosity toward anyone as no-one is obligated to answer posts on here and there are plenty of reasons for not doing so. I will try to be more specific from now on. Right now I don't know exactly which model/s will be up for sale and when. I just wanted to arm myself with the most info I could ahead of time. I appreciate your info , it is exactly the kind of info I wanted. One more specific question , though, I have heard the statement that the 1270/1370/1570,s outpowered their drive train to the point that most will be pretty much shot after this amount of yrs. Any credence to that statement in your opinion? Again,thanks, and I more than likely will be back with more Q,s eventually. RB

Yes there is creditability to the rumor. The problem was many farmers of the time were old school. They would weight the he!! out of the tractors and hook bigger imps to them. Case was trying to reeducate farmers and teach them about lighter tractors which compacted less and pulled smaller implements faster, thus covering more acers/hr. burning less fuel, and increasing the longevity of the tractor. Case called this theory "The Rapid Farming System" They had handy pocket slide sticks that you could dial in actual ground speed, impliment width and calculate acers/hr-day, or specific time period. That was the reason Case designed the intelegence center dash module linked to a ground radar unit. It monitored max performance and like the slipstick you could key in imp width and it would display % of wheel slip, thus field efficiency. Loren

Know exactly what ya mean. Back in '62 our neighbor bought a brand new JD 4010 and this is what he loaded it down with , a fully mounted 5 btm plow , 2 clod busters and an anhydrous tank behind that. Far as I know it didn't have a turbo and even though it only had 81 hp to tear it up , I doubt that tractor lasted more than 10 yrs. Again , thanks for your info. RB
