The History of Case Tractors in Argentina
The History of Case Tractors in Argentina is that of the development and
growth of the Latin American fields. As it's world wide known, Argentina was
for a very long time the World's barn. And in this picture, tractors and
growth of field productivity is the key element.
Case steam tractors are a landmark of the Argentine field, especially if we
take into account the fact that this was the earliest international field
company to settle in Buenos Aires and take the Argentine capital as the
ground base operation centre for the rest of the South American Continent.

The story began in 1842 in Rochester, Wisconsin. It was then when Jerome
Increase Case started his company. He soon moved to Racine, and it was there
where he began to manufacture threshers.
In 1953 Case and his partners brought into life the J.I. Case & Company,
usually better known from 1865 onwards through means of its trademark:
Eagle, "Old Abe".
After these ground braking inventions and adaptations Case did not put a
stop to his inventive and wit. In 1869 he built his first steam engine
pulled by horses. American experts say that Old No. 1 is now on display in
the Smithsonian Institution; this was wheel-mounted but still drawn by
horses and used only for belt power. In 1876 their first steam traction
engine was ready; and it was in 1892 when he launched the first Case farm
By 1890 the rapid and amazing growth of the Argentine fields and the
increase within the demand by European countries leads the South American
business to a sustained growth. Such was the fast growing rate that Case
finds productive to open a branch office in Buenos Aires. As we pointed out
above this was the first branch of a U.S. based company in this industry
ever to be established in Argentina. Later, two more branches are opened
there. And the success within the country and the region was indeed
Even at this early stage of the 20th century, the South American region
began to increase its technical skills within the field. Argentina was the
door through which these innovations entered the sub continent.
This means that Argentina was the starting point for the distribution of
these tractors, and the place where the broadest variety of models could
(and still can) be found.
In 1920 Case penetrates the final bastion of the Latin American region as it
conquers the Brazilian market.
And by the end of the 20s Argentina would become a true laboratory for
experimental models for the rest of the world. Indeed some true gems can be
found here from the very early days of this tractor company.
The story of Case in Argentina kept on growing at an amazing rate even after
other American and European companies began to exploit this fertile market.
