Some items that come to mind is the industries first quiet cab on the 70 series tractors. Flip up non metalic hoods and exhaust pipes in front of cab post and not through hood. Those items were quickly copied by the rest of the manufactors. Rod.

I don't know if these are Case firsts, but Case certainly perfected the wet (oil bath) clutch and chain drive.

Caseomatic? Nobody else used that style or type of trans, although others had a step down trans.

On their backhoes they where the first to use unit type construction, that is were they assemble individual componets too a main frame. Eng., trans, and final drive are seperate. They had overcenter lock for hoe transport and Extend-A-Hoe, both patented features which helped them become the #1 selling backhoe in the world. Rod.

They had the sliced hay bale first. Did anyone else have a 12 speed transmission in 1955? How about non-metallic fuel tanks? Case had those in 1969. Case cabs were also pressurized and roll protected in 1969. Case had power steering systems on the 110 and 150 HP steam engines. Actually, the big one is that they were the first single manufacturer to offer a loader backhoe.

a few more for you these on combines
first to install a V-8 engine (318 Chysler)

I think they were the first to have variable speed cylinder controled from operators seat also
another 1st on the bachoe/loader was Return-To-Dig
hyd self leveing bucket
first with "Hydr-Guide" this was a early self dig control for the backhoe

My Dad always said that the CASE engineers were the 1st to design the modern "Live Power Take-off", and that the patents were sold to Oliver. In 1988 when CASE was featured @ Kinzer's, PA, Harry Kline verified that claim to me personally.

John,
I have to laugh a bit about this claim, as it was discussed on the tractor Talk forum. There they claimed that Cocksutt originally designed it, and submitted a trator to the Nebraska test lab with it. "Model 33"? They said Oliver stole it, since Cockshutt didn't have it properly patened yet.
Interesting debate.

Although it was mentioned below, I would reiterate the incorperation of the Torque Converter Drive {Case-0-Matic} in both ag and industrial tractors as a milestone in tractor history. TCs are universally used in everything from cars to bulldozers today.

Ted, the impostant thing here is that a first doesn't make a successful company. The AC and IH guys all go on about how the Snap Coupler ot Fast Hitch were great inovations, IH guys about the 1st row crop tractor, AC guys about the first factory turbo tractor. AC and IH both failed. Don't matter who made it first, just matters who sank and who swam. Or who even took those ideas and made a better tractor. Who had the best business model.

I even saw an article this Spring stating that Cockshutt was 1st, now that you mention it. My Dad made the claim for years, & lambasted CASE for it, then Harry Kline substantiated it.
