If the transmission is in neutral it is just like towing any other tractor because nothing will be turning in the com. Just make sure the brakes work for stopping because even in gear there is no engine braking. If you put it in gear it would be like towing a car with an auto trany.

So can you just apply the brakes, as long as not locked in , to stop.i have a 800 Case-O-Matic and am still learning how to operate it.

The casomatic is a great system when running properly. Most maintenance in keeping the filter clean and full up with hydralic clean fluid. It uses CASE TCH or high quality tractor fluid.

The system is simple, it is a torque converter in front of a standard
transmission. There is no dry clutch. The clutch pedal is a valve
that directs or interrupts (dumps) oil flow to the torque converter.

Once in motion there is a lock-up for the torque converter which gives you direct drive.

actually, the torque converter is always going if the engine is running just like a car. The clutch valve dumps pressure and releases a clutch-pack that is inbetween the torque converter and the transmission. The direct drive is engaged by the lever to the left of the steering column and via hyd pressure and a cylinder engages a clutch locking the torque converter so there is no slippage and is therefore more efficient.

Pretty good transmission systems and you'll love once you get to use it but there are some problems. Plugged filters, warped clutch packs, worn clutches, bad seals (lets hyd pressure leak off), bad pump ect.

Good luck

to check the trans oil pull the breather/dipstick on top of trans housing behind the shifter, to check the COM LH side of bell housing/COM housing it will have another breather/dipstick, as another said as long as the trans is full of oil and you have the gear shift in neutral it will not hurt to tow it, as to the leak I am guessing it is at the rear of the engine oil pan where it bolts to the bell/COM housing pull the oil pan and replace the gaskets and that shhould fix the problem, get the gasket set from Case I also like to coat the gaskets with a Locktite product in CNH pakaging call Gasket Eleminator it has 515 in the part number I can post it for you if you like very good product and makes a oil tight flexiable seal, cnt

Yes they can be towed but I would not tow it very far. Ya if for say loading it and say less then a 1/4 mile go for it. Me I would make it run where it sits and do it that way. BTDT with one like that and was told it would not go forward and I drove it on the trailer

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. 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]
