I found this 1030 at an auction about 15 years ago, knowing the next door neighbor needed and was looking for a better tractor. It served him very well and now that he has retired from farming he offered to sell it to me at a very reasonable price. My son actually bought it and it will come home as soon as it gets warmer. I still remember the 1st new 1030 I saw at the local dealer. It was the biggest tractor I"d ever seen and my Dad said, "Who would ever need that big a tractor?" Our biggest tractor at that time was a DC4. Times have sure changed. Don

Who needs a tractor that big. That reminds me of the time a neighbor back in 1953 bought a new John Deere 70; it was the biggest tractor around here when the other tractors were JD/B IHC/h Allis/wd etc.
Now they use them to mow their lawns.

Good looking machine Don
Around my house all my neighbors think my 52 DC3 is the biggest thing they have ever seen. Gotta love the suburbs!

It doesn"t look like it but the motor was rebuilt a few years ago and is really a strong runner. The brakes, tires and the seat are the biggest problems. My son Dave has a degree in Economics and insists that most of our tractors be actually used on the farm, which is just fine with me. I think we can farm with our CASE tractors for the next 50 years. That's what they were built for. Don
