Tractor Info


Similar to the model 10-18 this tractor was built with a one-piece cast iron frame. It was built with removable cylinder sleeves which allowed for easy engine rebuilding if needed. It has a plunger-type oil pump which was driven form the camshaft. From 1920 and after Case offered this tractor with rubber tires which was becoming the best option as streets were being damaged by the steel wheels.
