Thanks for posting it for all of us to see
Was this his first time testing it out or has he used it before?
I assume he washes/ waxes the equipment when he gets done using it?

Only two views? I was one of them. I took a minute to look, just didn't leave any comments. I think that is a beautifully restored machine and it looks like it does a great job. My only question was, Does the transmission have an extra low gear, or does the tractor just naturally creep along at slow speed?
ok 2 comments...but as you can see some of the 'other guys' liked it too...not to take from the guys who looked at it in the Case forum....so many apologies for the 'slam' ...
It is hydraulicly powered so I'd assume it is like the other 'Case' Tractors of the time, but next time I talk with Steve I'll let ya know...or he may just stop by here and answer ya...
Ya, I think they only one of 1 of these right now...but if someone 'uncovers' another one I'd like one :-)
as far as washin and waxin...have you ever seen steve's barn stuff? LOL the most pristine stuff you'd ever wanna see...EVERY TRACTOR...

Does Steve do all the restoration work himself or does he have people help him?
I asked him that question, all himself...from the sandblasting, detail gatering, to the paint and final assembly 100% Steve!!!

Pretty cool machine. Has he ever had it near any tree roots?

As far as the trencher and 'rocks' or 'trees' ...Man if I were Steve I'd keep that baby away from all that stuff. We live in Ohio, pretty famous for the flat fertile soil. Of course we have our trees and some rocks...but Steves trencher is a classic vintage garden tractor. And most likely one of a kind...
That Said, I am sure if it works this good, it would handle it's share of 'adverse' conditions as wel as could be expectedl! Probably not unbreakable, - and at least, as durable as the stuff you can buy today. I for one feel very fortunate that he decided to get the trencher even dirty for my video. Most people have never seen one...so to see one 'digging' well that is icing on the cake...to be able to share it with the kind guys here at GTTalk...is real nice too!
