I used to work at a Case dealer, BEWARE of the transmission, when it is working it is a marginal at best trans. Wide powershift gear changes, poor clutch pedal modulation for close quarters work (backing up to equipment is awful) In operation you can tell that the trans PS unit is not long for the world. The torque limiter on the flywheel is a weak link and the cheapest to replace. When you need to do the PS clutch packs, it is a MAJOR job and is very expensive. The aftermarket has not started to make trans parts, as they are a relitivly low number of them built. USE CAUTION IMHO

I have to ask you guys here on this one. Did Case change the tranny on these from the prior Agri-King 70 series line? We had the forerunner model to this a 1270 and absolutely LOVED that tractor. We had very little trouble with the 1270. I will admit it had the tranny apart for the usual broken bolt issue on the clutch pack that they suffer from. But I believe it was more from operator error than from a bad design as it was early on and we owned it quite a few years after that and it was trouble free. We upgraded to a 7120 only because we were looking for a bit more modern tractor and after having both of them I would honestly take the 1270 back anyday of the week as far as brute power and traction. The Magnum struggles on some of our hills for traction where the Case would just power thru and walk away with the load, and the Case had bias ply tires where the Magnum has Radials.

Here's some pics of the old girl the day she left and some of the replacement for her. I'm not trying to stir the pot, just sharing my experience with a Case and maybe learning something as well along the way.

I have OH alot of these powershift trans they are all built on the same concept 4 clutch packs the more HP case just added more clutches and as you said went to 1/2 bolts. I will agree operator error has alot to do with problems. such as not down shifting maunally before clutching. cluthing from 3rd. can get very$$$$.
