Some recent posts here of tractors getting scraped, here's a short story... About 13 years ago a guy in Nebraska was running an ad in the Farm & Country trader looking for 9 & 1070's...need not run. I called him and we got talking, he said he was sending them to Mexico, overall condition wasn't that important. He said he had sent 150 Case tractors down there, mainly 9's & 10's. About a year later he called me & said he might have something I'd be interested in. A 1 owner 970 & 1070. The story goes the owner was in his early 70's when he bought the 970 new, his wife liked running it so he bought the 1070. Not sure what happened to the folks but the jockey owned the tractors now. The 970 had 1987 hours & the 1070 1323 hours, the 3 point balls on the 10 were still factory painted in place & the PTO had never been used. The tin cover over the PTO shaft was still on it. We paid $8000 cash for the pair. I sold the 970, come to find out it was a Black Night repainted for some reason. Dad still has the 1070, 2300 hours now.

In the 80's when the Soviet Union fell apart and they were breaking up the huge corporate farms with their behemoth diesel tractors there was a huge shortage of smaller tractors and no diesel fuel to run them anyway. A friend of mine was shipping container after container of 30 hp to 80/100 hp gas tractors. They had to run good and the rubber had to be brand new because they would never be able to replace them. The Russians had no money but would trade anything they had to get these tractors. They apparently were making their own fuel to run the tractors on. We send a lot of WD's, M's, H's, 77's, 88's, 770's 1600, 1650, a few 100 and 30 series Case and a couple of MM's and almost no JD's because they did not want them

His agent who was a Dane would take just about anything in trade. Vodka, religious artifacts, weapons, fighter aircraft etc.

Eric that was a great deal for sure, has to be one of the lowest hr 1070's left. Back in the late 70's and early 80's they were buying up 930's and sending them to Mexico. Rod.

Great find! Can you imagine what they would look like by now if they had gone to Mexico!

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]
