Monday morning I bit the bullet and bought a 730CK, the seller got the loader off last night and I got to pick it up this morning. A 15 mile drive later and it is at home. After lunch the cab comes off for someone to pick up tomorrow. I got one set of steps off my junker 730 and put on, the other steps, grab rails, and some odds and ends will come later. It seems to run good. Now comes the fun part, getting to see what it can do, I will get to compare it to my DC and 450, this should be fun.Mike

Just my opinion but, it looks 100% better cab off. Would be warmer in the cab if you had to be out in rough weather,and the seat would stay dry. Just a real nice tractor for many jobs,I have one too. Bruce

If it's healthy it will stand right up with your 450. It looks great!

For the door in that cab to work good for you , a person has to be 4 foot 13" and wieght only 120lbs. Think that cuts most of us out.

Nice tractor I can"t tell are the chrome strips on it? They hardly ever survive with a cab.

Yes the fill is inside the cab, there is a cowl about a foot wide in the cab with a flap door in the top. Yes the chrome strips are still there, no grab handles though. The door is pretty narrow, At 6' tall and 200+ lbs.you just don't dive through the door. Really for a 1960's cab it is ok. Triggs was a fairly local short line machinery company.

You Know what ? ..in its time , that 730 cab gasser is the ultimate comfortable cold weather instant starter daily feed runner ,, ,, however a fat boy could get claustraphobic with those skinnyazz dorz,, especially with a half tank of gas, bad vent cap and a lit cigar ... As far as comparing to a DC,, my 730 gasser Will not fight in a HARD pull like any of the DC s i have known ,,But it will consume the gas regardless of the job , Does your 450 IHC have a Marvel Schriebler like my 730 ? HOWEVER ,I think the marvel Schriebler carbs are better starters than Zenith , especially if they sit a while , My DCs are always KRANKY every spring after hibernating .. kinda like gettting over a cold . They will teach a Determined Farm Boy how to tune in a carburator .Did 730's ever have a ZENITH carb like all DC's i have been on .you could really lean DC s back on a hot day and rake hay in 4th all day on 5 gallon of gas with partial choke on turns and hills . i have done it many times .I believe that the Zenith Carb mated with the touchy governor on a DC have Made young men into lifer CASE LOVERS the world over
