Hello, I was looking through past threads of pics, and tips/hints of Case tractors. I really enjoy listening to you guys talk. Im 15, and I really like Case tractors, Heres some things my dad told me about "back then". My dad and Grandpa farmed with them. My grandpa Kenny, (Im named after him), started out farming with a DC Case, that he bought brand new. After that, he bought a 930, then a 1030. After that he stuck with Case for a long time. He bought a 970 for planting, and a 1270 for tillage and bigger jobs, after he sold the 970, he bought a white 1070. And he traded off his orange 1270 for a 1976 Case 1370 (new), because it had air conditioning. I forgot, he also bought a 800 NF (we still have it.) for spreading manure and grinding feed in 1970. The pulled a DMI Coulter Champ with the 1370, and had too much wheel slippage. My dad sugguested to my grandpa, they needed a bigger tractor, so they traded it in for a Brand new 1984 3294 MFWD. We were the only one who had one in the area for a while, my dad said they even had it on display at the Customer apprecation supper thing! In the Winter of 88, my grandpa traded in his DC and 1070 for a 1984 Case 2294, for a new planting tractor, it had about 2k hours on it. Then in 1989, Gpa Kenny died of liver cancer, in 1990, my dad takes over. He ran the 3294 until 1992, and traded it for a 1986 CaseIH 2594, with 300 hours for $32,000. Since he had a RED tractor, he repainted the 2294 red and black, CIH Colors. In 1994 My dad bought a 1985 CaseIH 4494, for a tillage tractor. He ended up replacing the turbo the same here, he also repainted that one, and put a 4694 intercooler on it, and put new rubber on it, so practially it was a 4694 now. He sold the 4694 in 2002. Then in 2005, he bought a JOHN DEERE 8300 MFWD. In 2006, he bought another Deere, a 8200. So then he sold the 2594, and 2294, very clean, LOW HOURED as well......................i still wish we had them, i got to run the 2594, pulling wagons, and disking, that 6 speed PS was awesome!! Hahahahahah!!! Very confy tractors. I spent alot of time sitting on the hump between the seat and back windows playing with my toy tractors, I remember my dad telling me to "watch my head" when ever he powershifted. We still have my grandpas 800 Case. And in 2008 my dad bought a 1972 Case 970 with a turbo and 4500 hours. I like them the most. My dad has converted pretty much to JD. My dad calls the Cases mine. Hahaa. I like JD, but not as much as Case. I love collecting Case toys, signs, and anything else!

I would post pics, but it wont let me!

Dont think i dont think you guys "can't read" i meant i hope you can read it!

It is so good to hear a young guy that appreciates those good ol' Case tractors. Can I ask why your Dad switched to green? That seems to be pretty common with Case farmers from the 80's. Were the 94 series not that good or did the merger not sit well, or did they not like the surviving dealer network? I have always heard the Magnums could more than hold their own against Deere. I probably will not ever have a CaseIH, choosing to end my farming career with pure Case machines. I plan on farming another 20 years LOL. Don

the 8200/8300 were ahead of Case in the area of hydraulics, lifting a tillage implement was one thing but lifting and running a center fill planter was another matter

Yes you are very right. My dad loves the hydrolics on his JD's. They are nice though. I always give him crap for selling them, I said sell the Deeres and buy Cases. Then you can have a whole bunch of money to spend!!! LOL! Thanks for the responses guys. I talk to a Case guy alot named Jason Kozlowski, a big Case collecter as well. Im not sure if you guys have heard of Bill Talbert eaither? Farms with Agri Kings, and 94 Series, and restores alot of 30 series. Case Nutty, i like your posts. I like your 1470 and disk photos. When I get a little older, I want to buy a 1030.
Thanks for reading, that a little of my history!!! third party image

Thanks for your family tractor history. Glean all the information you can from the older generations while you have the chance. They have a lot of good information for the younger crowd, including me. After all, they were there. It looks like you know that already, though! Good luck, and thanks again for the enthusiasm.

Glad to hear that there are more young guys interested in case tractors than just me! I will be 20 this fall and have grown up around international and case tractors. I currently own three DC my self and the family owns two more DC and LA a 730 CK, 1570, 2590, 2594, 4690. The big cases are our big work horses too. I like my international but I like the old cases just as much probably even more and like you I like seeing the older pictures and comments posted by the rest on this forum. Keep enjoying those Case Tractors.

Today's Featured Article - It's Alright Where It Is! - by Anthony West. I have a tale of a different kind to tell. Whilst rooting in the hedge bottoms this week I had cause to visit Chapel lane Farm, the home of an eccentric gentleman by the name of Austin Kendall. I had heard rumours that an old Case Model C was languishing away in the back of one of the outbuildings there. So off I went in search of what would turn out to be a very rare and unusual tractor. Mr Kendall is an excitable chap to say the least. He is amongst the last of a dying breed of farmer who ... [Read Article]
