  • I have a what I belive to be a 1947 VAI. The serial number is VAI 5153758. It has been stored under cover for years but it stated right up and it runs great. All I had to do was clean the points and put in new gas. It doesn t have a side pulley or eagle hitch, but it does have a PTO. I am thinking of selling it for around 800. Can someone tell me if I have the year right and if this sounds reasonable for price Call me if you want 1.360.601.7826

  • I ve a 51 VA std. with Wagner full hyd. loader, just saw another just like it for sale with wagner trip bucket loader and PTO and may get for future project. Any collector interest in these beside just utility snow removal chores The live hydraulic power is real asset. The PTO equipped one I m considering buying would be a good belly mower tractor for year-round use.The buckets remove easy, though the loader frame itself would be tough to remove.

  • I have a 1953 Case VA. I looks exactly like the fire orange colored on pictured at the top of this form. It is a general purpose agricultural tractor. The following is what I understand the colors and model numbers to be -- I see that Mark wrote on Apr 29, 2000, that he had purchased a Case VAI and it was all yellow with no parts resembling red. Mark, It is supposed to be yellow . the VA I means industrial and industrial is yellow. I see a VAI for sale at Bonney Lake, WA, currently on craigslist and it is yellow, but advertised as a VAC. The VAC is fire orange . None of these are like Jon Arms rare VAIW. I also see Denny wrote on Jan 4, 2006, that he has a 1955 VAI. I believe all VA series ended in 1954. The serial numbers of all VA series indicated a year following the actual manufacture date, therefore Denny may be thinking it is 1955 because of the S/N.

The numbers after the VT on the components vary.Can you give me a more precise identification? Where would I find a serial number? Thanks for your help.

  • Two years ago , I picked up a 1955 Case VAI that had belonged to a big orchard here in Connecticut. It has an eagle hitch , and pto , and is a great tractor . I have used it to haul firewood on my land, and also use a brush cutter on the 3 point hitch . I keep it in a shed, and even with the 6 volt electrical system , it starts in the winter...just . I also have a 2000 John Deere 4400 tractor with a 35 hp 3 cyl. yanmar diesel . Since I have a loader and a Patu wood chipper on the John Deere, I usually end up using the Case VAI for a lot of work . I payed $2400 dollars for the Case with brand new rear tires , and I believe the engine has been overhauled . It runs like a swiss watch . My only wish is that it had a live pto . When you push the clutch in , the mowing deck stops , or whatever you have hitched up to the pto . It's a manageable size , and does everything I need to do with it . It's a great little tractor , and if you can find one in good shape , they are usually not as expensive as a Deere of IH. Good hunting.

  • My dad purchased a 1952 VA in Fenelon Falls Ontario Canada to replace the clydesdale team. I remember the excitment on the day it was unloaded from the dealers truck onto the manure pile. The tractor was used to work a 100 acre mixed farm in Ontario until 1965. I still have the tractor which needs new rear tires, the originals are quite weathered. This tough little tractor stood the abuse of 3 boys learning to drive and operate equipment. Other than the odd clutch replacement the tractor is original.

  • From what I've been told by a friend, don't know how true it is,that the "I" in the VAI indicated that it was a industrial type tractor. I have a 1950 Case VAI, it has hydraulics (pump mounted on the front case between the gear train and the magneto{mines been converted to a coil/distributor setup}). It had the remaining parts of a sickle mower underneath. Alos a homebrew 3 point setup. I am also looking for more info, engine size/manufacturer, location of SerNo. Data plate has been mangled.

  • I recently got a case vai with a seized engine and a belly mower. My father and me tore the entire engine except for the crankshaft. I paid 150 for it and it was a great deal. There was hardly any where on anything. The starter gears were near perfect, and the piston and crank bushings were excellent. In the end we hardly bought anything for it and it runs great. It starts right up and runs clean. Everything works good for the amount of hours that were put on it.

  • I just bought a 1946 Case VAI. Engine's good, skins' OK. It has a front loader of unknown origin. The previous owner had the tractor for 22 years and fitted the front end loader. He thinks it was original off an old Ford but with some modification. The 'hydraulics' are powered off the rear PTO and uses 30# oil. It's got a narrow bucket - used for getting into horse stalls. I've got horses so I appreciate the amount of work this will get! The fenders were removed to fit the front end loader. It has a gravity (trip) bucket but it does what's asked of it.

  • I have a 1946 Case and would like to attach a mower. Can anyone tell me if a 1946 has a 540 for the PTO? I have counted six splines on the PTO shaft.

  • Recently came across a 1941 Case "V" model tractor (sn#V4522223) in working order, and in resonable shape. Would like to know what the value of this tractor would be. Any info that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, John Kikut, Woodstock Ontario, Canada

  • Is the use of low ash oil nessisary? The guy I bought the 1952 model vac said that that is what Case told him to use.

  • I recently purchased a 1945 VAI from my father-in-law. He bought the tractor in 1975 and used it to run an orchard sprayer and "buzzsaw". He ran the buzzsaw first with the belt and later with the PTO. I got the gear driven belt sheave with the tractor, it appears to have a hydraulic pump behind the sheave, is this correct. I would like to be able to use a mower and a rear blade with it, but alas, no 3-point hitch. Is there a 3-point set-up that anyone knows of? I just ordered manuals (parts, operators, service) from my local Case dealer. It seems that they can still get a lot of parts. Any info that can be provided me on the VAI would be greatly appreciated.

  • All the VAI's I've seen don't have any implement attachment points other than a towbar with a single hole in it, suitable for a linkpin hitch. Neither do they have a PTO or hydraulic system. They were meant to pull equipment trailers, tow airplanes to and from hangars, and perform other similar work for military and industrial outfits. Perfectly good tractor, but not usually set up for farm work, if that's what you had in mind.
