We're thinking about a Case 2290 that may be coming up for sale locally. Haven't looked at it yet, but have been told its in really good shape. Whats your opinion of these tractors? I really don't know anything about them and have never operated one. What do they have for an engine, trans, real horsepower stuff like that. What would a good one be worth?

Hank, here's some info from Tractordata.com to get you started.

Says they were built from 1978-1983

Price new: $44,400.00

2290 had a turbo-charged 504 CID engine, rated at 129.08 PTO HP.

Transmission Information, according to Tractordata.com:

Looks like the 2290 had a choice of 2 different trannys.

I've never been near one of these things, let alone driven one, but hopefully someone else off the board here can clue you in on what to look for, or whether to run like the wind. I suppose it depends on how well taken care of the machine is. Ask to see maintenance and service records, etc., take a test drive, ask if an operator's manual comes with the tractor, ... all the usual stuff.

Also go to Tractorhouse.com and see what other 2290's are going for, (or at least what the asking prices are.)

Case tractors don't have the best track record $$$$$ Just keep in mind when the powershift goes out it wont move, done get out your check book out. If you run the pto with the powershift lever in reverse and the transmission in neutral it will blow the powershift $$$$$. When the pto goes out you have to pull the hole 3 pt off to repair it $$$$. They have a tilt up hood and that is nice for working on the engine, not a bad cab for the times,single door, you can see the drawbar,controls are in a good area, vision is ok, the seat is the same as a 86 series.

Depending on how much money you would like to spend , I would save your money and buy a 7110 or a 5240, just my 2 cents !!!!

Thanks guys!! I think I'll be very cautious of this one. Don't need to buy a lot of repair bills.

Worked on 94 series, Danny is right, you have to dig deep in these babies to keep them running. Harvey

They are a decent tractor when they are working, but you are looking at big$$$ if something goes wrong, especially with the transmission. The motors are good, powershift is very jerky and rough, cab is good, prone to PTO issues. Alot depends what you want to do with it, but in my opinion there are better tractors out there for the money.
