Case tractors along with other American made tractors are in danger of disappearing from the scene if the American people don't wake up. The Chinese demand for steel and cast iron is like a roaring Lion seeking whom it may devour. The Chinese get their Iron Ore from Australia and Brazil all the time. But because uneducated dummeys in America don't value what their forefathers worked hard to build, they throw it all away just for a few dollars. Scrap is scrap, but a tractor that needs four tires and rims, an overhaul and some paint is not scrap. The Chinese are taking us because we are easy. WAKE UP AMERICA !!! Go to the internet and look up "Iron Ore in China". The demand is expected to get greater, so now is the time to make up our minds to save and protect American made Tractors. They are as American as we are. God Bless You Tractor Lovers. ---Derrol in Texas(Case LA Propane)

Last week, in conversation with customers, 6 of them told of tractors, of all brands, that they knew had been recently scrapped. The total came to about 60 tractors. Makes me sick. A common thread is that mostly, the owners wouldn't part them, or put a high price on them, or chased any prospective buyers off. The scrap man always buys them cheaper. Why do we get discriminated against?

i totaly agree. when i take real junk the no good stuff to scrap and i see all this nice stuff such as cars that look like they run and have no rust or lanw mowers with tires that still hold air or nice pieces of steel it sickens me what people get rid of. i like to fill up my truck with good stuff and. i found 1 time a huge cat or something crawler that was all cut up into a pile. had a huge fricken winch with 3/4 in cable that somebody had gottenm rid of with it. what is the world comming to. the old tractors are more reliable than the new.

I agree with you mostly but tractors are not the only thing to worry about. China will own this country if we dont demand common sense from our elected officials and thats on both sides of the isle. I seen the other day that they are trying to gain some of our defense contracts now thats scary. People need to honestly try not to buy thier cheap made CRAP. Sorry i got off your topic about our past history being junked. I have seen some pretty nice stuff junked. I bought a RC a few years ago out of a scrapyard that would have been pretty nice. That was before they grabed it with a claw and ruined the hood fuel tank and fenders. Thad

There's more to life than just making lots of $, the sooner we learn this as a nation the better. Unfortunately I don't have high hopes. I personally would rather see someone enjoy something and see it put back into good use, then get a little more $ and know it went to scrap. But that's just me.
