A few examples
10x10 carried a rating of 20 nominal hp with a brake output of 50 hp.
6x8 listed as 6 hp
7x10 listed as 10 hp
71/2x10 as 12 hp

Straw burners were offered as 12-16 hp

I never realized Case made so many models of steam engine traction types.
It seams on the 1900's as 65 and 75 hps were popular. Looks as if a 110 was also popular are there are a few of them left. Upon futher reading in my 150 Years of JI Case I see where they made a 150 hp Case Road Locomotive. It goes on futher to say that they have all been scrapped. Some where shipped back to the factory , conerted to portable or stationary engines and placed back into the fields. Sadly, not one of the nine 150 hp engines still exists today.

For anyone interested I would recommend 150 Years of JI.Case by C.H. Wendal. This book can be found on ocasion on ebay and I was also infomed to check Amazon Books for copies, you won't regret getting it.

The reason for scraping them was there was a problem with the gearing. The Road Locomotive had two forward gears, 2.6 mph and 5.69 mph. Case did not build this as a double-geared engine, since the demand for this 4000.00 engine simply was not sufficient to warrant futher expensnse in developing it.
