Unfortunately, Tom, it ended up being scrapped....in fact, i salvaged the engine as it was being cut up. The harvester was bought new by a Mr. Alf Arner, a tobacco farmer who also owned the Case dealership at Essex, Ontario. Unfortunately, he was stricken with either Lou Gehrig's Disease or M.S. shortly thereafter. The dealership became a company store and the farms were rented out. It took him about 20 years for the disease to kill him.His equipment at the farm sat all that time. Another tobacco farmer then bought the machine,added a tank, spray boom and pump and used it as high clearance sprayer for 10 or 12 years. it then sat likely another decade or so outside before being scrapped.
Yes, it was an oddball. Being 3 wheeled, it was pretty tippy w/ the spray tank mounted on top. Ground speed was controlled by a manually controlled variable speed pulley. It would be interesting to know how many (or few) of those harvesters Case built. I would hazard a guess that that was the only 1 sold in Canada.Perhaps guys from the Carolinas or Virginia would know of others.
