110HP Case Steam Tractor – The Coolest Pull You’ve Seen

Monster trucks and demolition derby vehicles are two different things, but steam tractor pulls? Soᴍᴇᴛʜing like this doesn’t come around very frequently. Rob Gill shows a 2004 steam tractor pull from Pinckneyville, Illinois.

The smoke-belching beast that belongs to owner Josh Maschhoff resembles a cross between a tractor and a train. It has an engine completely filled with coal and water, works at 150 psi, and weighs more than 21 tons. This engine’s tremendous 3000 ft.-lbs. of torque at 240 rpm is unmatched by most contemporary machines.

When the train whistle blows, this amazing 100-horsepower machine displays steam changing into a fire-red shower of sparks. You can hear the announcers cautioning the audience to be aware of the hot sparks that are dropping in a streaming spray from the smokestack before the performance. Sawdust was added to the coal and water before the performance to create the flame effect.

Farm Collector claims that the first 40 Case 150-horsepower engines were released in 1904. There was a possible fire ʀɪsᴋ back when these were being used for harvesting. The threshing procedure required a lot of power and put a lot of strain on the equipment. Modern gear has, of course, solved these issues today, but this engine nonetheless serves as a potent reminder of how effectively farmland was formerly managed. Prepare to be amazed when you take a peek for yourself!
