Default Kory Anderson's 150 HP Case Project

An interesting read of what Kory Anderson has done so far:

Kory Anderson's 150 HP Case Project, James Valley Threshers Annual Threshing Show in Andover SD
http://jamesvalleythreshers.com/storiescase150.htm

That is one big steam traction engine.

Just an update on this project, There are now pictures of the 150 case running on steam belted to a bakers fan! No videos yet, Kory doesn't want to spoil it before the reveal in September.

Further updates and pictures can be found by googling the Anderson Industries facebook page, it seems none of the other pages relating to the project are particularly active.

Any plans to build something really heavy for this beast to tow around?

I showed this to one of my coworkers and he half jokingly said "why?" I tried to explain why it was important but he just joked about steam power destroying the earth blah blah. This machine is a million dollar investment. Some would say a million dollars would have been better spent on cancer research or helping to alleviate poverty. Objects like this however, i think inspire something even more valuable, they inspire hope. Without hope in the heart, you can't battle the grimmer things in life. I'm looking forward to hearing this sucker pull some heavy loads and let us all forget for a while, the weighty matters of our daily lives.

Thanks for the pics, I have a new screen background.
Sure it cost a lot to do, but I think its worth every penny. Afterall, what do we do with our money in the short time we spend on earth? I think life should be enjoyed and the purpose of this tractor existing is beyond anything I can describe, and it will be a wonder for generations to see.
Thanks to Kory for his efforts, and all the help and interested parties involved.

Some people are missing the historical significance of recreating a piece of history. Where would America be with out steam? The industrial era was lead by steam innovations including steam engines for providing food on the table.steamboats for travel , locomotives for travel and moving goods, and stationary for factory production..so when folks think it us silly for spending our own money on history they need to be reminded of the contributions steam made in building this great nation..

You are all absolutely right, One of my favorite parts of shows is seeing all the children and even some adults get wide eyed by these incredible machines they have never seen before because they've been living in the modern world. Half the people at my local show were gathered in a circle around the big ol' 35-70 Minneapolis taking pictures when it came out of its shed!

People say there are better things to spend a million dollars on than building this amazing machine, they aren't wrong. But keeping the heritage of this nation relevant when it's being quickly forgotten by the newer generations is definitely worth the investment. Hats off to people like the Anderson's that are always working on organizing events and restorations to keep the history alive.

I am SOOO FREEKING SICK of people bitching about someone with disposable income, disposing of it! That million dollars wasn't burned in the firebox, it went to steel mill workers, machinists, foundry workers, the smaller suppliers of things like hardware and paint, truckers, the people who build those trucks, etc. My father worked on private jets when I was a child growing up, the food on my table and the roof over my head came from the checkbooks of the rich. This is simply an amazing creation and everyone involved should be beaming with pride. If this was mine I would be driving everywhere with a grin so big it would require plastic surgery to fix.

How much does this thing weigh?

Kory says 28 Tons DRY weight! Fully loaded is 35 tons!

Also here's some quotes from the Facebook if some of you guys can't get around to seeing it.
"We had it on the baker fan pulling well over 100 HP... It was just running idle! Haven't had a big enough load to even hear the exhaust yet!"
"A set of wheel extensions are in the works!" (As if it needed to be even wider.)

Also just some Misc. Stats, The rear wheels are 8 feet in diameter (For reference, the 110 has 7 feet wheels.) while the front are around 4 feet. The throttle is a 3 inch ball valve, and the whistle is a 4 inch Buckeye 3 chime.

How did the factory ship these engine? I don't remember the dimensions of rail cars, but a wheel laying down has got be close to the width of a rail car. Ship by barge????

Here's some pictures from the facebook of it on a standard lowboy. I'd say it could fit on the right railcar.

I know that it's going to be revealed at the show, but is there a set date and time? Or will it already be there on display? Ceremony? Would love to be there for it...

I had lost track of this project after only seeing some patterns that had been made and posted here on the Stak.
Kory Anderson has been busy the past ten years! What a story and what an accomplishment. It proves that just about anything can be resurrected. I find it inspirational for my measily projects.

What i meant to ask was how did the Case factory ship the engines when they were originally made? Modern flat bed trailers would not have been available. I would think the weight and size limits on bridges would have been a problem too.

Just like today, they were not fully assembled. All the wheels and rear axle were shipped separately and assembled on arrival at their final destination. Modern large units today are shipped as sub assemblies, you see many mega size implements going down the highway on trucks, still in parts bundles as there is no other way to handle them.

I seen Kory Anderson yesterday at the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion, at Rollag, Minnesota.

Kory was one of the operators at the big sawmill operation that was powered by two 110 h.p. CASE steam engines.

When they shut down the operation, me, and a couple other guys were asking him questions concerning his 150 h.p. CASE steam traction engine. Kory was so nice and friendly to everyone, which means a lot to me. (Some people let their successes go to their head, and act like a "big-shot", but Kory didn't.)

He'll be steaming up the 150 h.p. CASE at their South Dakota steam show in a few days. Be fun to see it in operation!

I agree with you as this has so much importance to many of us, and to think these guys built a steamer, not just any steamer, but a 150hp J.I.Case locomotive!

I could care less what those type of people think(those that complain about steam power or the sky is falling). And agree they don't have any idea what built this wonderful country. I elect to clear my mind of these little snipes that no very little

Do you guys reckon Kory will be bringing the 150 to the 2019 Case Expo at Rollag? No way he can miss a Case expo at an event like Rollag when he has that beast finished.
