“Thank you to all who made the historic 50-bottom plow possible this past summer! And to those who are new to steam, thanks for visiting the 150HP Case homepage. LET’S KEEP HISTORY ALIVE.” -Kory Anderson, 150HP Case Engineer
THE 150 HP CASE IS THE LARGEST STEAM TRACTION ENGINE EVER PRODUCED. Built originally in 1905, zero of them ever lived on – until recreated from scratch in 2018 by Kory Anderson.
The journey of the multi-year build was followed by more than 10,000 followers on Facebook and eventually led to more than 20+ MILLION views on YouTube with his legendary “engine pull” in September 2019 at the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion (WMSTR) in Rollag, Minnesota, followed by the 2022 historic 50-bottom pull in Andover, SD. This site is a place for steam engineers and hobbyists to learn more about bringing the 150 Case to life.
