Went to a show in Nicholesville at the Fair. I like when they have the wrap around front weights like that also.

That wrap-around may protect the front end just a bit too, Gordon. I had an uncle that had a hard time with fence posts and trees at the end of the field... :D :D

Your right about the weights being a good bumper. My Grandpa was the same way with his Case, you never got all you could mowing unless you had just a little rub.

I think so to. I would love to find one someday with a wide front. Never worked one but they would have to be a beast.

Dads big tractor on the farm was a 400, it replaced a worn out Farmall M. Dad wanted a diesel with live PTO to pull a Bearcat flail chopper for silage. It was 2 years old when he bought it and it broke in half weeks after he bought it. The blacksmith in Monmouth welded the bolt ears back on and added 2 side plates to reinforce it. Dad had a loader on it for years and no more problems but it worried him for years....James

I agree the 400 is a nice tractor.Here are some pics of my 1955 400 diesel
This is the 400 with a Case B97 disc that was bought new with the tractor

Here's the youngest taking a turn on the 400 the day we brought it home in 2008

Here's the 3-14 eagle hitch plow that also came new with the tractor

Here's the 400 with a Case 283 2-way disc plow that came from Idaho



Here's the boys bushogging with the 1190 & 400

Nick I sure did like the pictures. I don't no how you find all the tractors and equipment but I do believe you have more hard to find pieces than I have ever seen. Some day I'm going to show up on your door step just to see it and hopefully get a tour.

Nice diesel, Nick. Loads of good implements too. Great combination and great addition to the stable. Good pictures too.
Thanks for the compliment!
I looked for a 400 for over 10 years before finding this one on ebay.It was about 65 miles north of me in Jasper Indiana.The home of Jasper rebuilt engines and transmissions.
It had been sitting for about 15 years,but a little diesel and a good battery and it was running in less than 10 minutes.

Nick I am guessing this tractor is somewhere close to the UB Moline size and weight; am i guessing anywhere close? Can't tell the size of the mold boards from here; just that its a 3 bottom. Thats a very sharp looking Case
