This is the largest and most powerful engine built in the Case shops. It is designed for heavy plowing and freighting. As a Gold Medal Winner in each contest in which it has been entered at Winnipeg, it has demonstrated that there is no other steam engine made that is in its class. With its extra large capacity for carrying fuel - 1,945 pounds of coal - and 366 gallons of water - nothing has been omitted for the convenience and efficiency of the operator. The pop valve is set for 160 pounds, but is allowed 170 pounds' pressure by the Canadian Provinces of Albert and Saskatchewan.

This engine won the Grand Sweepstakes Prize as well as the Gold Medal at the Winnipeg Motor Contest, 1912.

Price complete, as shown above, including cab, $3,055 FOB, Racine, Wis.
