I guess I would have to say that it doesn't get any better than going for a ride on the Spirit. But if it is a letter series or a 96 series or any in between, if it's a Case it's great!

I have 3... My 54 DC, but back in the day, I liked the 53 we had better, my 800 diesel. It doesn't owe me anything. I paid $400 for it 6 years ago, and all I have ever done, is change oil, and add fuel. The one that gets used the most is my 830 COM diesel. Other then needing the seat suspension rebuilt, and the step handles, it is by far the easiest to run.

I love my 811B, but Pauls choice would be my #1! If only I could find one I could afford! (Free!)

970, only Case tractor I've operated. Very nice with the power shift! I like the looks of the 30 series.

My Dad started with a crossmount case and the first new tractor was a 1929 L (I still have) than a new 1948LA put on propane in 57 , 1947 LA , 1947 LAI, 1949LA LP, new 1960 930 LP, 57 600LP, 1966 930 CK Diesel, 1972 1470 owned it two times, new 1979 2390, a Versitile 555, 1982 4690, 1982 2590, and a 1995 9230. Also have a old 59 900 Lp. The best?? My Dad ,if he was still alive, would say the L. I think the 1966 930 CK Diesel is mine although the 1979 2390 is close.

No question it's the 830 com eh, or maybe a 1030. No definately the 830, unless I had a lot of acres then the 1030. Of course I would still favor the 830 for chores and planting.

Our 730 diesel, but the 870 gasser may take over the #1 spot because it always start so darn quick as engine warms up faster than the diesel.

Can a fella have 2 favorites? Of the flamebeau nothing much better than the DC, and the 800 was just a "pretty" tractor.

1st new tractor on the family farm. 700 diesel dual-range with semi-mount 4/14's was the main workhorse of the farm.

700 diesel is my main workhorse here too. Is in the shop right now addressing a few problems before the season starts. Second favorite is my 1940 Case V. Used more in winter than any other tractor to haul firewood and gin around jobs.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them.
