Case IH Plant Tours…See your favorite red equipment brought to life

Case IH Plant Tours

Before your days fill up with fieldwork, I invite you to visit one of Case IH’s three state-of-the-art agricultural equipment manufacturing facilities located throughout the Midwest for a behind-the-scenes look of what it takes to breathe life into your favorite Case IH equipment.

Plant tours are free and each facility offers something different on the assembly line. Visit the Case IH Plant Tours section for more information about each plant and scheduling tours, but in the meantime, here is a quick preview of what you’ll find at each facility:

Case IH Plant – Racine, Wisconsin

The manufacturing operation in Racine, Wis. is home to Case IH Magnum™ Series tractors. In fact, the first Magnum tractor was built in Racine nearly 25 years ago. Since then, Case IH has exported more than one-third of the tractors built here. In addition, this plant also builds transmissions for Axial-Flow® Combines, Cotton Express® Cotton Pickers, as well as axles and valves for Case IH Steiger® Series 4WD tractors.

Case IH Plant – Grand Island, Nebraska

The Case IH Center of Excellence for Grain Harvesting in Grand Island, Neb. manufactures Case IH Axial-Flow Combines and heads. Because of its proximity to some of the largest hay growing areas in North America, the plant recently underwent an expansion to accommodate the production of several types of Hay & Forage equipment, including Case IH windrowers and windrower headers.

Case IH Plant – Fargo, North Dakota

Case IH’s Fargo, N.D. facility was initially built by Doug and Maurice Steiger during the 1960s to accommodate the growing demand for their new, articulated tractor design. Today, the plant produces Case IH Steiger and Quadtrac® Series 4WD tractors and Case wheel loaders. The 600,000 square foot facility has the capacity of turning out one tractor approximately every hour. In 2005, it produced its 50,000th Steiger tractor.

Some things to keep in mind when visiting a Case IH plant…

When planning your Case IH plant tour, be sure to call ahead to make an appointment before setting out on your trip. Tours typically last an average of two hours, so plan to wear comfortable, closed-toe, flat-soled shoes – you’ll be glad you did!
