I have never seen one like this before. I don't know if it is rare enough to warrant the price though.

 

What do you case guys think?

That's the "new version" been around since the early 90's I believe, and still the version you can buy now.

Price isn't bad at all, wouldn't take much to have it looking brand new in no time.

In 1980 a friend showed me the splitter that he had on the back of his 646(?) Case. I was surprised that it ran off the tractors hydraulics. The tractor had an FEL, hydraulic tiller, and a hydraulic dumping trailer too. He used the tractor for his extensive gardens and orchards. He had just gotten a machine that is similar to a terramite.

 

The splitter was for short logs and one way only. He probably bought it around 1970. The price seems high to me. Too many people believing what they see on the boob tube.

boyscout, all of the real Case splitters will split both ways, that makes them different from most.

Price new is like 3K I have heard, never really looked into them that much. :thumbs:

John, 3k for a partial splitter(no engine nor pump) is rediculous. My Brave splitter was $950 new with a 5hp B&S fifteen years ago. I also think that it is rediculous to buy a big box store tractor for $1000 when a nice old GT can be bought for $500.  I don't know if Jon's splitter was original or not. There were a lot of limited run accessories for machines in the 50s and 60s.

 

A neighbor back home had a proto type car he built in the early sixties. He couldn't get the financing to start a company. That car sat there until he died in the late eighties. His kids sold it for a small fortune in the 90s. You just never know what you will run across. I had thought that the car was an import. After it was sold I learned that the old guy had hand built it. Previously he had been on crews that build race cars.
