July Featured Photo

This month’s featured tractor photo was submitted by Ken Christopherson and features his 1941 JI Case SC Centerline.

Ken Christopherson’s 1941 JI Case SC Centerline with a self-powered hay press sit near the threshing display area at the 2017 Nowthen Threshing Show in Nowthen, Minnesota.

“The tractor was built and test on January 28th, 1941 and shipped to Peavey Elevator Company in Wahpeton, North Dakota on January 29th, 1941. My grandfather, Norman Christopherson, saved this tractor from a salvage yard in the early 1970’s. The tractor was parked and forgotten shortly before he passed in 1993. I rescued the tractor from the woods in 1999 and began restoration at the age of 12. I finished the tractor in 2008 at the age of 22.” said Ken.

Ken has been maintaining a registry for the 1941 Case SC Centerline tractors for about 5 years and currently there are only about 70 documented Case SC Centerlines known to remain.

“The 1941 Case SC Centerline is a rare tractor because of the center-hood exhaust and air intake. Only the first few hundred Case SC’s were produced this way. Shortly after being released, JI Case received visibility complaints and decided to redesign the exhaust to exit the side of the hood.” said Ken.

This photo was chosen as a winner in our photo contest and will be featured in the upcoming 2020 Steiner catalog. Check out the other winning photos here.

Right on Point Tachometer

Note, the replaced tachometer, both in the run and in the off position. It looks just as it should. Everything I’ve done was cosmetic. The tractor itself was mechanically sound and all the “pretty stuff” was purchased from Steiner’s. It looks good for a first time restoration job. My painter, who pushed me to get all the parts said it looked like a Steiner warehouse blew up and lit on it. Not to imply that I am in the same league as your usual restorers, but for me I think it looks great!

Thank you again for all the help from your customer service people.

20 Years of Service

Andrew Wilberding celebrated 20 years with Steiner Tractor Parts on June 15th, 2019. When Andrew started working for STP there were less than 10 employees working out of Dave and Sue Steiner’s basement in Grand Blanc, Michigan.

For the last 20 years Andrew has created our annual catalog, and all print work for Steiner Tractor Parts. In 2018 Andrew became the marketing department supervisor.

Congratulations on 20 years of amazing service, we look forward to many more.

Congratulations and Farewell

Last week was bitter sweet. We celebrated the 10 year anniversary of Travis Pierce in the shipping department. We also said goodbye to Shannon Weber in customer service.

It is always a blessing to celebrate our employees as they continue their years here at STP. And even though we are sad to see Shannon leave, we wish her the best in her new endeavors in Iowa.

Congratulations to Travis on 10 years of working hard in the shipping department at Steiner Tractor Parts!

Farewell to Shannon, we will miss you. Good luck in Iowa!
