I bought my first tractor this weekend, a 1955 Case 400. My Grandfather farmed with Cases when I was a little boy. That's me and my younger brother in the cab with him around 1987 or 1988.

Even though I grew up in the city and now live and work there I still love the sounds and smells of the farm and farm machinery...reminds me of Grandpa.

I'm a member of vintage tractor club and I'll be using my Case for vintage tractor pulls, road tours, some vintage farming activities and possibly public displays and events.

Hey. Nice 400, and it has a belt pulley to! Love the CASE tractors. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

I was able to find another picture of my Grandfather's last tractor. My Uncle farmed with it as well for years after Grandpa retired, before moving up to a front assist Case a few years ago.

Welcome to the fraternity of Case owners. It is great that you have warm feelings for your Grandpa and his Case tractors. That 400 will bring you many happy experiences, I'm sure. Enjoy it and think of your youthful days whenever you drive it. Don

Today's Featured Article - Two-Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
