The ad on this tractor says Triple Range Drive. Was wondering what that is. Looked at the tractor and since I never been around one could not figure it out. Looked like a hand clutch and a foot clutch on the left side and a high and low transmission shifter lever on the right side. So where does the triple range come in at? Unless I missed a lever somewhere. The ad said 3 point. but it is a eagle hitch. Thanks

Hi Duane,
Your right,it's alot easier to get along and respect each other.And I'm sure there are those out there that enjoy the games.But they seem to miss the passion of collecting,and I think for sure there is something missing in their life.So really,we all need to pity them,as its a sad way to have fun.
Hope someone can help NEKS,as his post got sidelined

Don't really know why the green and red guys monitor this site and post such inane things. While JD and Farmall are good tractors Case also made high, rugged equipment.

If your desire is for a Case then go for it. I have 630 gasser with triple range and couldn't be happier. The other post below with useful information is correct the range lever requires pulling it or pushing in/out then forward and backward to get the three ranges.

As for the 3 point, the eagle hitch was the Case version of the 3pt. Some on here will not agree, but in my opinion still the best set up over the Ferguson system which requires you to get on and off the tractor to attach to implements. The eagle hitch allows you to open the "claws" get on, back up to the implement and position under the pins, lift the draft arms, pull slightly forward to close the "claws" and then attache the top link; all while you are still seated onthe tractor. As well it does not flop around like a traditional 3pt and requires no stabilizers to make the arms rigid. On a lot of implements this makes not difference, but try to drill a straigtht line of post holes, cultivate without detroying some of the crop or plow a straight furrow with your middle buster without rigid arms, which Ford and Ferguson did not have. Other manufacturers that added the 3pt after the Ferguson patent ran out also used a stabilizer to make the arms rigid to solve the above problems. Case moved to the traditional 3pt in 1965 or so to avoid having to convert their eagle hitch to class 2 or 3 set up and atthe same time added the draft-o-matic feature. As well I just learned on this forum yesterday that JD has moved to eagle hitch like rigid arms on their small tractor lines as well, most manufactures now offer a snap lock hook up similar to the Case eagle hitch so I guess it was not a bad system afterall.

If you want the Case and it is priced right get it, no matter what Mr. "Green" says. Case made fine tractors and brought innovations to the farming industry that others copied. As well if you buy green you will pay a premium.

The range lever will also slide out to the right to go into a third range. A triple range has 12 speeds. The hand clutch will disengage the drive clutch for stationary pto work.

Well fellows you think i said that to pull your leg. Well i'm talking from personal experience a 630 case is a piece of junk.I have run one before, if you want to play around buy a 630 you want to get something done buy a Deere and if you cant afford a Deere buy a farmall 400 or 656 atleast.Even a o'l 400 is still a hell of alot better tractor than a 630 case.

You know, I thought someone obviously as smart as you could at least compare apples to apples. I guess "an old International 400 or 656" would work circles around a 630. The 630 is basically a heavy duty small tractor. The 630 is more closely akin to the Farmall 300 or JD 2010. The 730 is closer to the 400 and 656. When you want to compare, make sure you are comparing two tractors in similar engine size and HP ranges.

You blew it on this one buddy and showed all the Case people on here what an arrogant and unintelligent tractor guy you are. Next time you want to make a comparison try going to Tractor Data and looking at specs to make sure you are comparing similar machines.

Your comment is like comparing a 1/2 ton pick-ups towing capability to a 1 ton!! I guess you would notice a difference if you were trying to pull a 15,000# goose neck with an F150 when it really should have been hooked to a Dodge D3500. Ford F350 or Chevy 3500.

Well Jim you better read your specs again as 630 is rated at what 48 horsepower thats about the same as 400 farmall. So maybe you better think before opening your mouth. Case made several tractors that way to light for there horse power. A 300 a 500 and a 630 to name a few. Even Herb Wetzel our biggest case collecter around here calls a 300 a piece of junk. So its matter of do you want to get out and do something or do you want to play around.

Sorry, Nebraska tests on 630 are 43 HP, IH 400 48 HP. IH 400 weight 6500+ lbs, 630 about 4400 lbs. You gonna tell me these are tractors in the same weight class. I didn't just fall off the turnip truck, I can read weight and HP specs. As well compare their physical size. My 630 fits in my garage I can guarantee a Famall M or 400 won't.

The 630 is probably too light for 43hp and too close in HP to weight ratio to the 530. Piece of junk as you and Wetzel say, no. It has a place and use, its low in production numbers and pretty well sought after by Case collectors. It is a good tractor for mowing, raking, hay wagons, small farms, etc. Its not a tractor to pull a 6 bottom moldboard plow on your 500 acre field, never designed to compete in that class. The guy wasn't asking for a JD or Farmall sales pitch. He was asking Case people, which you are obviously not, what their opinion was. You tend to JD and Farmall obviously and that is OK because they made some good equipment. Everyone is entitled to his opinion, but get your facts straight, and data correct. The 630 was never made to compete with the JD 3010 or Farmall 400. It falls in roughly equivalent to the Farmall 300 and JD 2010.

Again the Farmall/IH 400 is a update of the M/MD and Super M which are equivalent to the Case DC and big Case 400 (not 300b/400b models which equate more to the Case 430). The IH 300 is closer to the Farmall C, maybe H, and the Case 300 roundnose is about equivalent to the ealier Case VAC.

Not gonna argue with you anymore, you like JD and Farmall which is OK, but keep your personal opinions to those sites if you have nothing positive to say and have no good information to share other than personal biased opinions. That is NOT what NEKS asked for.

Jim

You might be right. Sure doesn't seem to know his tractors. I'm by no means an expert but I know the 400 was one heavy tractor, by no means equivalent to a 630. If he has worked with a 630 it must have just been to drive it back to the barn.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
