Hi,

Can anybody remember, and I'm fairly sure someone will, a Case Crawler loader about 1970 with something like a separate transmission to each final drive. I remember driving one, it might have been called Case 1000 and I think it had a one yard bucket. I've looked on the web but haven't been able to find anything. I'm old but I hope the mind worms haven't penetrated to the delusion stage, it was a nippy little thing, a pleasure to drive. Hope somebody can help please.

Hi Towdun.
Your memory's fine. Firm I worked for had two on a job in 1964.
One was a shovel and the other a blade, the blade had hydraulic tilt and angling, (see pic), bit ahead of its time then.
The shovel had just a straight bucket, (no 4 in 1).
I was a mechanic, but I got to spend a few shifts on both of them, and your right,they were a joy to opperate. They had little short lever controls to each track.
They had Leyland 400 or was it 401 engines? I think in some other countrys they may have been fitted with Continental engines.
I found these pics on Google.

I would presume then, they would operate very much like the foot pedals of track machines. Except that you're using your hands. 1 brake pedal instead of individual ones.
Would the throttle be hand operated or more similar to modern day machines?

Hi Pecall
The two short levers I was refering to were forward /neutral/reverse for each track independently. They were close together and could be opperated with one hand. There were brake pedals and a decelerator which would over ride the hand throttle.
It's 45 years ago and difficult to remember exactly, but great to opperate.

P.S.
Trax, practice makes damn near perfect.:rolleyes::D:D

Thankyou for the posts.
Thats about as I remember the loader but it had the full cab. The bullgrader looks pretty nifty, it's the first time I've seen it, very unusual to see one that size with hydraulic angling. I would have liked a drive but I was a bit ham fisted with a grader. I'm not sure I'd have done much forestry with it, not without a trailer full of spare hoses anyway. Good job!

Wasn't the drive system used on these machines called terramatic?They were very fast when operating but gained a reputation for the tracks and running being short lived as a consequence.

Yes Peter, your right on all counts there.
There were no cabs on the ones I drove either Towdun, cabs came in a bag in those days, you had to wear them.;):D

I think the 800 was a one yarder the 1000 was 1.5 yard was replaced by the case 1150 in 1965 terramatic is a great name dont know why they changed it800 became the 850 and the 450 is one of the best there is someone as to defend them lol

Hi, A.T.C. The American Tractor Corp. made the "Terratrac" crawlers and developed the "Terramatic Transmission." They were the first crawlers to use a powershift transmission.
Case bought A.T.C. in 1957 and adopted the transmission and the name.
The tractors were only badged Case from about 1960.
There were four ways to stear the Case 1000, I found the illustrations below
which refreshed my memory too.
The Pivot turn in the second pic. was controled only by aplying the brake. They realy were a joy to opperate.
