1958 Case 511B


My Dad bought this 1958 Case 511B new in 1959 and it’s one of the first tractors I learned to drive. I thought it was time for some needed repairs and a new paint job. I got it finished with some parts from Steiner TractorParts. It stills runs great.

Tractors Connected the Three of Us

Tractors Connected the Three of Us

Three Tractors One Family

Here are my 3 tractors. My Great Uncle’s DC Case tractor I recently purchased and will be restoring. A 1929 Case “C”, and the picture is at the church where we had my Grandpa’s service. And my 1941 Farmall H that my grandpa gave me when I was little. I restored it two years ago for him and is my most prized possession. He was so proud. All three are at WMSTR in Rollag, Minnesota every year. You guys are a great company! Thanks for supplying everything we need to keep these machines going!

Case C

Case C Tractors

The story behind the C is that I bought if for my Grandpa to use. He had cancer and could no longer get up on the H. So I purchased this one so he could manage to use it when he needed. Grandpa got to see it the day I bought it. But unfortunately he never got to use it, he passed shortly after. The reason why we chose to use it at his service is so he could get one ride on it with me. He was the one who taught me how to drive a tractor. So he was able to get a ride on the C I bought for him. I had the job of carrying his urn with me to the cemetery.

The other two have very special stories too.

Farmall H

The H was given to me by my Grandpa when I was little. Grandpa purchased that tractor when he bought his own farm. When he purchased it he drove it all the way from Fargo, North Dakota to Hawley, Minnesota, on the highway. He used to use it for digging, hauling bales, plowing, and many other things. It was kind of the “go to” tractor on the farm.

Ever since he gave it to me he wanted me to restore it and get it looking nice so it could be at Rollag. In summer of 2016, I made his dream come true. I restored it at a cousins house (approximately 10 miles from his house). And just like him, drove it all the way back to his farm, on the highway. We never showed him any pictures during the restoration, so he was shocked when he saw me roll into his driveway. It was a very emotional and meaningful moment to both of us. But I could tell he was proud. I am so happy I restored it when I did, because he ended up passing away  in October. I am so glad he got to see his tractor, finally restored. And he got to see it at WMSTR in Rollag too. I call it “Grandpa’s H”.

Case DC

Case DC Tractors

The DC Case is a tractor that belongs to my Great Uncle (my Grandpa’s brother). This is a tractor that he bought years ago to use around the farm. He and my grandpa used it for many of the smaller jobs. My grandpa always talked about how nice the tractor ran and how smooth it was. However, he did think the steering system was odd. Over the years, my Great Uncle and my Grandpa worked on this tractor and made their own repairs to it. About four years ago, my Great Uncle told my Grandpa to ask if I would be interested in buying it. My Grandpa brought it up, and told me that he thinks I would really like it. So I went and looked at it with both of them. I took many pictures and really wanted to buy it, and told him I needed to save up some money first.

The Final Project

When my Great Uncle saw how the Farmall H turned out, he really wanted me to get this one. Back in November 2017 I asked if he was still interested in selling it to me, and he said yes. I know both him and my Grandpa wanted me to have it, so I felt like it was the perfect thing to do. So, my Great Uncle sold it to me for $300. I have gathered parts and I plan on getting started on it in the Spring. Hoping to have it at Rollag! This tractor means a lot to me because it has the repairs that him and my grandpa did on it, as well as it was the tractor they used around the farm for many years. Now I have a tractor from both my Grandpa and his brother. Tractors connected us three so much, and for that I am forever grateful. I live my life, wanting to make my grandpa proud, and I know buying that tractor would make him ecstatic. Tractors are truly something that connects us and many others. It’s just awesome.

Restored Case Tractor

Restored Case

Restored Case

I bought this Case tractor in Oakland, Mississippi. It had not been cranked in about five years, just sitting outside in the weather. Exhaust was covered, engine not stuck, had anti-freeze in it, had no water in the crank case, and luckily the rubber was good. The diesel pump had two stuck plungers. One injector malfunctioned. It took me about eight months to finish the restoration. Now it runs great, has amazing power, and is a beautiful tractor. It is one of many Case tractors I have restored. I love restoring tractors, it’s great fun! I guess you can say I have classic tractor fever!

Bird Sanctuary to Christmas Ornament

Bird Sanctuary to Christmas Ornament

My name is Dave and the tractor story I have is about a 1944 Case model DO. What started all this was my father and I were sitting down at my parents house in Florida. They bought a house there over seven years ago and moved there full time.

Now back at our old family house hold around Christmas time we would pick a piece of equipment or a machine and decorate it with lights for the holidays. The last time we all as a family did that was in 2007. So two years ago around November early December my father and I were talking about how fun it was putting the lights up and how we both enjoy our tractors and machines. The last tractor we did was our 1941 Farmall H and it looked good so we thought and talked about how can we do this in a subdivision in Florida?? Well after some time trying to figure out how to get a tractor home, we found one that worked perfectly!

Here’s the Paul Harvey story lol, I was on the internet and found an ad for our Case tractor that the man we bought it from couldn’t keep anymore. So naturally we inquired about it and found it in Tampa Florida about a 30 minute drive from our house. Now when we got the directions where to meet the guy we were surprised to find out it was a Bird Sanctuary. Mr Zaksee was his name and birds were his game. This place was just amazing for what it was and sure enough there was the little Case sitting by a tree. After awhile of chatting and some laughs we made a deal and the very next day got a trailer and picked her up and brought her home. And boy what a feeling it is bringing a new toy home. The main reason we purchased the Case was for a Christmas ornament for our home. And to find a vintage tractor in a bird scantuary is neato.

We fell in love with it because it needed to be saved from where it was. We brought it home and cleaned her up. Even put a quick coat of Case orange to protect it a little. When Christmas came around that Case looked great in our subdivision.
