Invite Your Friends Over For A CASE 150 Tractor Pull!
Just don’t tell them you are going to put them to work!
The Case 150 Steam Tractor was the largest steam tractor that was built back in the 1904. Known as a “road tractor” for its pulling power, it could handle pulling up to 36 or more plough bottoms at one time. Seen here in action, it clearly can handle this field.
Since none of these tractors survived and less than a handful of these tractors were ever built, Kory Anderson took on the project to recreate the Case 150 from the ground up.
Originally called a tractor drive engine, that term was shortened to Tractor later on. While the Case 150 Steam Engine had 150 horse power, it was slowly phased out of use in the late 1920’s in exchange for the lighter weight internal combustion engines using kerosene, petrol or distillate.
