  • Case 2670: Answering the farmer's call for BIGGER horsepower. By the mid-1960s, the horsepower race amongst tractor manufacturers  had turned a major corner. Everyone had broken the 100-horsepower barrier with a factory made tractor. In doing this they created a new hurdle - traction. Case decided to look to its industrial division for assistance in building a true 4WD. Feature tractor owner: Dwayne Wenninger - Georgetown, OH.
  • Jerome Knudson's Unique Tractor. The story of the Knudson farm tractors starts with the inventor, Jerome Knudson, and his ranch hear Crosby, North Dakota, where rolling hills created problems in large-scale farming. At his shop in 1967 and at the ripe age of 23, he developed his own tractor with crab-steering, plus 4WD suited to farm the hillsides of his home state.
