Case built more steam engines than anyone else. In 1892 they built a 16-20 using a two cylinder engine designed by Patterson with a Davis engine. No more were built.

1912 to 1917 - 30-60 twin cylinder 10 12 7 360 rpm, one speed. It won the gold metal at Winnipeg for large kerosene tractors. It had a round barrel radiator. Jim Erdle told me there are still seven in existence. Norman Pross shows a good one each year at the Rollog Show.

1912 to 1923 20-40 two cylinder 7 3 4 times 8 7 450 rpm, one speed. The very first ones had motors built by the Davis motor works of Milwaukee. They started building their own engines in 1913.

1914 to 1916 8 9 two speed, 1917 to 1923 8 3 4 9 & 475 rpm weighed 13780 pounds. It won a gold metal at Winnipeg in 1912, winning 411 points out of 490. Drawbar pull - 13780 pounds. The price in 1913 was $2000; in 1919 $3000; and in 1920 $2500.

In 1913 a few 40 808s two cylinder were made.

First 20 408s had thermo syphon cooling with draft induction. After 1917 they used a circulating pump, core radiator and fan.

1913 to 1918 12-25 two cylinder won 6 3 4 by 72. Two speed forward probably 15 left. 1915 to 1919 10-20 three wheeled 4 cyl. 412 679000 rpm valve in head. The idling rear wheel had a clutch and could be worked from the driver's seat to make that wheel work too. This tractor never became popular and only 97 were built. It had an oval brass nameplate like on a steam engine

1917 Model A 9-18 4 cyl. cross mount 3 7 8 5 & 1050 rpm to engine. Valve in head, channel iron frame and radiator.
