Your calendar says the term "Comfort King" was introduced on April 17, 1965, but Stonehouse and Brumbaugh say it was 1962 which is what I remember as my dad and uncle were exploring the possibility of opening a Case dealership and I recall them talking about the "Comfort King.(Unfortunately, they did not do so.) I also remember an ad for the tractors used by the Bloodworth Brothers in Arkansas
and the term was used there at that time.

Sorry, all I have is what the book told me. I wasn't trying to put you down as I know how confusing research can be from my days as a graduate student in history.

Tom, you are right in that the CK term was used in 62 for the 930 and later used in 64 for the 730 and 830. We can't give "Dutch" too much grief though as he does a whale of a job with the calendar and hope that everyone sends him their photos.

The Comfort King designation came with the relocation of the fuel tank to the rear of the tractor and the raised flat operators platform. Not sure, but the April 65 date could have been the production start date of the 930 CK / DOM tractors.

It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
