"I've had this tractor for a long time now and have well gotten my moneys worth out of it. Now it seems to have gotten so old that my Case equipment guy can't seem to find some parts for it but I'm not giving up, I need a radiator overflow reservoir. Anybody can help I sure do appreciate it."

"Tractor seems under powered for listed HP. Pull power and PTO power just isn't there for a 31 hp tractor. Great front loader plenty of lift strength. Have a grey market tractor also, a Zennol 1802 rated at 21hp seems as strong as the Case-IH."

"Having had this tractor for over 20 years I'd just say that I hope parts stay available somewhere 'cause I'd like to keep it another 20. Bought it under a year old, with about 230 hrs on it, primarily for brush hogging in the pasture, and it has served me very well.
Always running strong, gotta keep it in the right gear and range for the work, of course, and sometimes that means low/slow; but by God, it's a machine, and if I can't adjust myself to get the best out of my machine, and can't afford, nor actually NEED a bigger, more expensive thing, then that's ME not using good sense, not the fault of the machine!
I don't know how much space they gonna give me to write, but the only problem I've had with this tractor is in the starting/ignition system, and it's sometimes frustrating as hell. Wind up having to jump it; even now.
That's how I got HERE in the first place, looking for a solenoid, or somebody to rebuild this one. But I always run this tractor for a good 6 or so hours, about a full tank of fuel when I get it started, drags box blade really well, hydraulics do what they're supposed to do, auger WILL dig post holes just fine. Anybody got one been wrecked or parted out I'd like to speak to you."
