150 CASE Road Locomotive pulling 44 bottom John Deere plow - new record!

November 24, 2021

Watch the 150 Case pull 44 bottom John Deere plows at the James Valley Threshing Show in Andover, South Dakota! This is a new record for this engine with 36 bottoms being plowed in 2020. We are so excited to share some footage!

The amount of power being produced by this SINGLE CYLINDER steam engine is phenomenal!! This is the result of 180 lbs. of steam pressure acting on a double-sided 14 inch piston with a 14 inch stroke. 2 speeds forward... slow and slower! (actually about 5.7 mph. in high gear, and 2.6 mph. in low) That said, with the amount of gearing, it produces over 8000 ft. lbs. of torque at the wheels! This is the equivalent output of 8 - 2021 Dodge/Cummins turbo diesels running at full power @ 1800 rpm.!! This tractor does this at 200 rpm. at crank speed and probably with quite a bit less noise
