Just when you think you have seen it all, that poor Case :(

I was looking for something and came across this.

Actually his conversion makes perfect sense. Electric over hyraulic eliminated the need for a controller, and he chose a Case with a tired motor. 

 

Maybe he could add some side scoops on the hood to make it look less, well, hacked into though. :rolling:

First thought was 'boy that sucker has some large rear wheels'.

My brother has two motorless Case tractors and the plan is to convert them both to electric power. It's not that difficult and saves them from the scrap pile.  Rick

Back when I was trying to figure out how to do a conversion I found this site to be a big help.

 

http://www.evalbum.com/type/TCMW

 

It show what others have done, what tractors, parts they used and the results they got.

 

The case in the first post is a older conversion and is a good example of a electric conversion.

A lot of people who do these are using whatever parts they have and getting them to work.

I like the idea but when they say they get less than an hour use.... forget it. I would need 3-4 hours use out of a charge or I would go diesel.
