I am new to Case tractors. What is the difference between a DC and SC Case tractor? They look pretty much the same in the ones I have seen. Thanks

During the Second World War Case sent to the UK the DEX tractors on the lease lend scheme. DEX was the export version of the D but I do not know the differance. MJ

The C does not denote a front end style it stands for "cultivator" hence a tractor intended for row crop work.

Here is a rough comparison for physical size and power:

Case SC = Farmall H = John Deere B (mid 20's Hp)
Case DC = Farmall M = John Deere A (mid 30's Hp)

Just in case there is any missunderstanding, these are not exact numbers. I relaize that the horsepowers of these tractors did change during their production runs, but for a cursory comparison it may be helpful.

They look similar, but there are a lot of differences. SC is a little smaller, its less powerful, & it has a sheet metal grill. A DC's grill is cast iron, its battery box is above the dash while an SC's battery is under the gas tank. There are other differences, but this will give you a start. (My $0.02 worth. jal-SD)

Thanks for the reply. Does the "C" in the model refer to the narrow front end. I have seen Case C tractors with wide front and the "CC" with narrow. How do the "C" tractors fit in the size range?

'C' series tractor predated 'D' series tractors. Many componets are similar or the same. If the letter 'C' follows a 'C' or a 'D' it does mean the narrow front end. The second letter in a name commonly denotes the specific package the tractor was purchased with, some common ones are below:

'DC', 'DC-3' = Row crop, narrow Front (or adjustable wide front)
'DC-4' = Row Crow, non adjustable wide front
'D' = Standard Tread
'DO' = Orchard model (low profile version of a 'D')
'DV' = Narrow version of a 'DO'
'DI' = Industrial model (heavy duty version of a 'D'
'DE' = Power unit only
