Not Surprised at All . These are the kind of POWER Horses that the Greatest Generation fought and won wars with, AND fed the World with for Years . They made Men Confident who swore by them and sometimes even Swore at them .LOL ..... I have pulled out a County dumptruck and a concrete truck mired into the ditch on the side of the road ..The DC has a most amazing balance pulling torque ratio...During winter blizzard77'We lost all ELECTRIC for 3 days or more here in tame winter Southern INDIANA ,. No one had a generator then ..3 straight days temps STAYED Below zero with windchill 30 below ,.didn't see anything on the roads for 3 days,. drifts 10ft with ice underneath and a nice ice coating crust on top you could nearly walk on ,, you Guys up north have seen the times more than enuf I am Sure ....anyway the DC CASE is what we started 1st By hand cranking , Then went on to pull 73 FORD pickup, 830 Case and 430CASE Diesels ,, got busy digging ourselves ands the neighbors out .. Massey 165 jelled up because neighbor did not want to add a little gasoline to fuel like we did the CASE Diesels ....

Being in southern Ind. remember those sub zero nites in 77 well. Was out working on the local roads with a DC, neighbors big Ford diesel jelled up and sat in the roadway. Back then farmers cleared the roads, county didnt have equipment like they do today except in 77 they ended up renting bull dozers to get the worst of the drifts.

Where did you live in 77?.. Yeah , Dozers is what they used here in Harrison and Floyd county . It was funny too, Cause ,the contractor dozer had started following our On Road then Off Road track across the harvested and still frozen corn field that all the neighbors were using to get out from back there ,The drifts completely masked the road to that poor guy , who was running a open station D6 Cat .., That was the 1st time we ever used a little gas in Diesels ,(never heard of such ideas ).. We trusted the neighbor mechanic and did so at his insisting , the 165 was still considered new and hands-off,and We all wanted to Remain GOOD Neighbors ... but it sure did have trouble jelling ...

Dearborn county at the south east corner of Indiana, still am there and got some new snow today. Back in 77 we had a field next to the road that blew clear with most of the snow falling in the road cuts and redrifting so we opened the fences and let trafic drive thru the field to bypass the worst of the road. Still have gaps in the fences I can open if need be.

Nice that they start in cold weather too. My old DC has a new mag and fires up if I need it.

Wow, you must have easy winters in MN, we got 18" of snow last Sat in Central VA :) (Not often I can needle someone from MN about winter!) I used my 800 to plow driveways, pull some hay up with the wagon from the barn for a woman to feed her horse, and pull my pickup out of the snow. You just can't beat an old Case for pulling, regaurdless of weather.

RJ, I was watching the news last week, You guys were the talk of Minnesota,our local news cast covered your weather in detail, and Yes you sure did get the weather. I have not seen a bad winter in years,way below average snow fall here in minnesota, the past 7 years. We still manage to get darn cold,but lack the snow fall. Jim

Back in the 50s, we had a 38 C Case and a 37 B John Deere. For winter chores, the Case would start dependably on the third or forth pull of the crank on the coldest of days in Kansas. The John Deere was hard to get started in the winter. The Case mag had a really hot spark.
