Thinking about buying a 1070 in the future for grading gravel driveways and dirt lots. Also to use it to pull a land plane. Any thoughts at to wether this would be a good choice. Any years better than others, was there a choice in transmissions.

I was hoping for a little faster, say 25 mph. I will have to do a lot of road miles.

Thanks for the help!!

Good tractor that offers both the 540 and 1000 PTO...

We use it as a general field tractor and a bale loader...

A 1070 is probably one of the best Case tractors ever. Big motor that will last forever. I have an 8 speed manual transmission model that was put on the dyno after a new PTO clutch pack was installed-130 hp with the pump still sealed and over 10,000 hrs on the tach. The motor has never been touched. It is simply a good tractor, although it is a 1978 late model. I can't give you any ideas about the powershift tranny as I have never owned one (or driven one). Don

Hey Don, How did you squeeze 130 ponies out of your 1070? I was thinking they were rated around 100 horse.

Yes, you could get a powershift or an eight speed manual. The eight speed was kind of pokey on the road though, it is also very sturdy, and trouble free. I have a 1070 with an eight speed, and it has been the most trouble free tractor I have ever owned. The 1070, if it had decent maintainence in its previous life, will be a good tractor.

They have an 17 MPH road gear with 34 inch wheels. As far as the model year, the newer, the better.
