The 600's were introduced in 1972 and they had Power Red frames/axles etc just like the 200/400 models but the tin was painted yellow. This continued until some time in 1976, I believe and then the Power Red was dropped from the 600's in favour of the all Power Tan used by the Construction Equipment Division of Case. Presumably this was done so that these units matched the paint scheme of the Case construction equipment. That way, they wouldn't look strange sitting next to a 580 loader/backhoe.

Case never painted a 600 as an all-Power Red machine. Only Ingersoll did that.

Didn't you mean Power Yellow? :headscratcher: :trink:
I think that you are probably correct. I am certainly wrong by saying Power Tan. That was definitely used by Case on construction equipment.

Case used a couple of yellow paint colours in the early years and I have not paid that much attention to which one was used where. I believe that there was an "Industrial Yellow" and a "Federal Yellow".. I see that some paint suppliers do offer "Power Yellow". Here is an interesting paint chart. I don't know who created it though.
