caseman i was watching RFD tonight and on classic tractor fever and i seen a Case 530. The fenders covered over half the rear wheels whats the reason for that:question: Its was a nice looking old Case and it was very different with the rear fenders.

Jody,
I'm guessing that the tractor you saw was probably a 530 Comfort King. I'm not positive on the date but I thing around 64 case changed the body style on the 30 series to a comfort king. Mainly what the change was they removed the front fuel tank and put it in the back of the tractor between the fenders.

I couldn't find a picture of a 530 with the type of fenders I was thinking of. here is a picture of a 870

I will also try to post a picture of a 630 with orchard fenders. picture on the big side.

I think this is probably more of what you say

It looked more like the 2nd picture but it looked like the guy was sitting more forward and it didn't have that metal hood over the steering wheel.

Jody,
The one in the second photo is a Case 630 orchard. The 530 is next size smaller so seat could be different. I found a picture of a 530 so maybe you can picture it with orchard fenders. Not all orchard tractors have the original tin to protect the operator.

Wanted to pass on that our annual Threshing Bee runs from 20th-22nd so I will probably be busy getting things ready. I plan on taking the Case D in Case D project out to meet the rest og the gang. Will try to get photos of everthing.
later

caseman thats what it looked like but with the fenders. They never said anything about it being a orchard tractor so i didn't know what the fenders were for. Just that the guy restored it and it was the pride of his collection.

I also noticed the exhaust is pointed down and the controls and steering wheel is covered. Probably to avoid catching the limbs and knocking off blooms and fruit when driving under the trees.
