Hi Range is to be used only for rapid travel across normal terrain to get from one place to another. It is not intended to be used while performing work of one kind or another. Case never intended Hi Range to be used while ascending steep grades or descending them either. Knowing HOW to use your tractor properly is the key to greater satisfaction with it.

If your tractors had difficulty climbing grades in Lo Range, then that would suggest certain parts are badly worn. A diagnostic would need to done on the hydraulic system to determine whether the pump was capable of putting out its rated flow and pressure. The oil should be changed out and fresh 20W50 installed to make sure that wasn't part of the problem.

Again Tom, you fail to grasp what was said. If you were reading closely you would see that I have shifting ranges down to a proverbial science. Unless you're mowing 4 or 5 inches off in one pass, how productive is it to mow at 3mph? This is where the hydrostat is more efficient. No need to change ranges when you come to a hill. You can easily mow at the limits of engine power or cut quality. I'm not knocking the Case in any way. They have the same hydraulic capacity as many farm tractors did in the 60's and 70's. It just depends on what you want to do and how fast you want to get it done. I like the big wheels and high clearance. It cuts better than my 1450 Cub does too.

I grasped perfectly what you said.

The engineers wrote Operator's Manuals that clearly state Lo Range is to be used when performing "work". Mowing grass is "work". However, there are some owners who insist on performing "work" in Hi Range and then blame the design of the tractor when it fails to ascend grades while cutting grass.

When you push any machine beyond its design limits, then who is at fault? Sure, if a tractor is driven by a hydrostatic pump instead of a hydraulic pump, you can ease off on the control lever. Trust me. I get it. However, I wouldn't trade my Case for any of the hydro powered units that are out there today. Most of them will be in the scrap yard within ten years time but my Case will still be motoring along just fine 40 years from now, thanks to its design and rugged components.
