New Idea (maybe) manure spreader identification

Decided to buy a manure spreader for my old man as a late christmas gift for his hobby farm. He lives in a different state so I had some time between picking it up and delivering it, and I had some extra paint laying around, so I thought I'd clean it up a bit. I may have gotten carried away...

Anyhow, I am curious if anyone could tell me anything about it from the photos. I'm assuming it's a New Idea since the original colors appeared to be orange and green, but there were no markings or tags on it that I could find. I'm curious about the model and approximate age of it. I found the hitch to be particularly interesting.

T-6 Case it is. Flambeau and close to Hunter green were Case implement colors...I agree that the tires need reversing if it were in less than ideal conditions.

Others are right about reversing the tires. Back in the day, there were directional arrows on the tires to show direction, traction vs drive.

Thanks for the insight guys. Question though, it was definitely painted orange with green accents which is why I thought New Idea. Did case ever use those colors, or was it more likely repainted at some point?

Regarding the tires, that's how it came, and that's how tires sit on the tractor. Knowing that this is a driven vs driving machine, if the tires should be the other way, let me know so I can make it right. I've used it a couple times and so far haven't had any issues with it as it currently is.

It will have better traction if the tires are backwards. Allows the tire lugs to dig in, rather than slide, on ground driven equipment. But, if it won’t be used in snow or slippery mud, likely will work just fine with the tires that way too.

I think Case did have some green colored accent parts on some of their implements, but others likely know better than I on that for sure.

Based off of hitch design, I also am thinking Case. Looks like a good, usable machine.

acaswell,

Nice looking for now!

Quick question, aren't the tire treads supposed to be the "other" way?

Brett is correct. It is a Case model T6. Appears to be in very good condition. It would have had a Case Flambeau Red box and dark green trim. The green would be similar to early Oliver green or todays Forest green Rust-olium. The Flambeau Red is a bit deeper orange, but similar to the AC and NI orange.
The only thing missing, seams to be the shield over the ratchet and paw on the apron drive.

Ya,I never saw a New Idea ground driven with a steel box. That light tongue says Case.
