Guys, can I ask a question here? Being Case info challenged, I don't understand the reference to "the last of the heavy duty tractors." Is this a personal opinion, or is there a real difference? Is this a reference to this series, or Hydrive versus mechanical?
Thanks for any reply, George
As far as I'm concerned, the phrase is nothing more than sales hype.
There's nothing lightweight about a X-700 series Deere or Kubota's.
Is the Case or Ingersoll tractor the end all, be all tractor for everyone? Absolutely not. There is hierarchy of tractors in the marketplace.
You will see RER's (rear engine rider's), Lawn Tractors, Yard Tractors, Garden Tractors, sub-CUT's, CUT's and full-size Ag tractors. CUT is an acronym for Compact Utility Tractor.
Each version gets larger, heavier, more powerful and more versatile than the previous version and of course, more expensive. To a degree, the line is a bit blurry between the versions and I think that's done deliberately to confuse the buying public. The 200, 400, 3000 and 4000 series of tractors are all Garden Tractors and Deere classifies there X-700's as Garden Tractors as does Kubota with their GR series.
