Here’s a new road trip destination: a tour of the Case IH factory!
I visited the Case IH factory in Racine, Wisconsin when I was nearby at the Red Power Round-Up. What an adventure!
The Magnum Series Case IH tractors are manufactured at the Racine facility. Here’s a picture of me with our friendly and super-informative tour guide, Peter.
I visited the plant along with my friends Wild Bill (Bill Anderson), Victor, and my dad. We were able to take pictures outside of the plant, but once we passed through the visitor’s center and onto the factory floor pictures were no longer allowed.
Inside the plant, we got a firsthand look at the assembly line. It was really fun to see all the parts come together to form a brand new Case IH or New Holland tractor!
This tour is a great experience for both IH enthusiasts and the general public. You don’t have to be a big tractor person like I am to appreciate the tour, so bring all of your friends!
The best part about the tour: it’s absolutely FREE! Wow! Tours must be scheduled in advance, and visitors must be at least 14 years old.
My tour was at the Racine, Wisconsin facility. Tours are also available at the Grand Island, Nebraska manufacturing facility (where they make Case combines) and at the Fargo, North Dakota plant (Case IH Steiger tractors). To get all the details, visit the tours page on the Case IH website.
