Older model case quad tracks

We are looking at a Case 9370 quad track - late 1990's. we are hoping to use it on our grain cart and heavy harrow. Are there any issues that we need to be aware of or wear points that we need to inspect

No personal experience with the 9300 quads. Do own a stx quad though. From what I've heard the 9300's were fairly reliable. Read about brake problems and you will want to check all the axle seals and centre pins for wear/leaks. The tracks shouldn't give to much trouble if they were well maintained. Just make sure they have clear caps on the idlers/rollers and you check the oil levels daily.

Pull the brake cross over tubes and replace with new tubes...They can get limp in time and your brakes will come on and you will not know it. UGLY

Had a 9380 on the farm years back on tires, unquestionably the most reliable tractor that's ever been on our farm.

On the tracks one thing I do know is some of them are still running around with the old style drive wheels that do not have holes in them, they caused trouble in lots of mud and were terrible in snow causing trouble with the tracks so keep that in mind.

If it does not already have kyle clear view caps on I highly recommend getting a set for it.

Other than that they are very similar in design to the new ones only that many parts have gone from steel to cast iron.

Before I forget, they ride terrible but if your not afraid of a cutting torch and a welder cab suspension is doable
jb and Jmjperformance like this.

They only ride terrible if you have rocky ground or lots of washboards on your gravel roads. We love our stx and I don't have any complaints about the ride except for the situations I just mentioned. In our area, we have no use for cab suspension on our quad.

I would say its the wrong choice of tractor for harrow & grain cart. Those two jobs generally involved higher speed and don't get the tracks much chance to get dirt in the under carriage (which acts as a dry lubricant) Its going to be horrible rough at higher speed as well without cab suspension. Id buy a wheeled tractor if those are its main two jobs.

As a farmer, you learn quick: “You don’t get anything that you don’t work hard for”

A few washboards but nothing horrible. It helps that almost everything we farm is in a 4 mile radius. Rocks we maybe pick 5-10 a field by hand if we are lucky. Cant remember the last time we used a rock picker. And nothing of much size to make a quad ride rough.

Maybe I just farm fairytale land!

9370 Quadtrac Pinion

When we worked over the differential we noticed this bolt was not in the hole on the bottom of the bearing. So we installed one...were we not supposed to do that??
