9380 Quadtrac
This is a picture of a 1999 CaseIH 9380 Quadtrac my dad and
I decided to improve a little. We first got rid of the wall
paper decals on the hood and fuel tank. We then repainted
the hood, and added the wheel tractor's 9380 decals. We then
went and had the windows on the side and back tinted to 30%.
This picture was taken right after we had washed and waxed
it, getting it ready to got to do spring work, which it is
anxiously awaiting to do. This picture was taken in Iowa,
USA. It was taken outside of my dad's shop.

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
Thanks Jarrod. We also had a chrome stack on it, but it
turned purple within 4 hours, because the exhaust was coming
straight off the engine, and it was running a little hot I
think. I don't know for sure, but I think this tractor has
been turned up a little bit more than what the factory specs
may say. We got it a little over a year ago. It came from
Canada, so I don't know what kind of work it did, but I do
know that it has never been on a scraper, or used in
construction.

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
where in Canada did the tractor come from? Why was it
better to buy tractor up here and truck it to Iowa?

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
It came from dealer that has businesses in Vermillion,
Alberta and somewhere in Saskatchewan. Anyways, we wanted
one that hadn't been on a scraper or used in construction.
My dad looked everywhere in the US and the ones he had found
had been used in construction, or the ones that hadn't had
been rented out to construction companies. So, this one
popped up and my dad agreed on getting it. It was only used
on farming operations. Dad lucked out though, the trucker
that hauled it hauls new combines from Moline, Illinois to
that part of Canada. He doesn't haul anything down here so
he agreed to haul it to the dealership where we got it from.
He charged a $1.00 per mile, because it was on his route
anyways. It only had 900 hours on it, and was in excellent
condition. So, one can't go wrong with that.

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
That quad looks good Andrew. And I don't blame you for not
wanting a tractor used for scraper work.

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
Why is that, Lance and Andrew?

Is it because scraping is very heavy work or something?
Cause when a farmer or customer-service(right??) buys a
secondhanded tractor here, he needs one which has done lots
of heavy work. The engine is running like the work the
tractor does after many houres. When the tractor has done
heavy work for many houres, the engine is adjusted to it and
when you do much lighter work with it for also many houres
the engines breaks down very quick. And also when he has
done light work and you are doing much heavier work the same
thing can happen. That's what they say over here.
Anyway, nice tractor :-)

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
Hi Frank.

The reason I would not want a tractor used on a scraper is
that Scrapers REALLY work the heck out of a tractor, and
they can bend or break the frame of a tractor easily if used
too heavily. Of course these companies now make Scraper
Special tractors with heavier frames that can take the
punishment of Scraper work.

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
The reason we didn't want a scraper tractor is because they
are so hard on the tracks, which cost about $5000 a piece,
and also we kind of wanted a nice looking one, rather than
one that looked like it went through hell. Don't get me
wrong, they make excellent scraper tractors, but we wanted
one that was used for lighter kinds of work. We lug the hell
out of it anyways when we pull our disk ripper, so it does
get broke in correctly. I know you should lug them first
thing, in order for all the seals and rings to kind of take
shape, or something in that order. Well, thank you for the
comments.

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
what's a scraper??> i think i have an idea, but i think its
the wrong one, can somebody explain that to me?

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
It's a piece of equipment used to level out the ground, by
taking layers of dirt and "scraping" them away and leveling
the ground out. They are either pull type or self propelled,
sorry don't know how to explain it. Companies like CAT,
KOMATSU, and other make them. I'm not sure about pull types
though. Hope this helps you out.

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
Thanks Lance and Andrew.

Didn't know it was that bad for a tractor.
We don't have any work that heavy over here I think. We do
use scrapers but they are smaller and I've seen pictures on
this site of tractors with more than one. We don't, our
tractors can't :-D

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
What kind of tractor is that, it is a pretty cool looking
one? It looks pretty big and mean.

Looks like a Cameco or a Rome, used in Sugar Cane country
mainly.

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
This is what a scraper is or as we call them down here "dirt
pans" Most everyone uses them to level ground so it has
fewer levees and makes for easier flood irrigation. Its very
hard on a tractor because of the earlier mentioned thing and
also the fact that alot of people run them 24hrs a day when
dry. This is a JD/Cameco scraper. Reynolds also makes a very
good scraper.

Re: 9380 Quadtrac
Not too many farmers in Canada use those big tractors for
scraper work or laser leveling as our irrigation is mostly
by center pivot. The land just isn't flat enough to do
flood irrigation. Once in a while farmers will use a buggy
to dig a ditch or do some earthwork around the yard but
usually it's just field work. We are starting to see more
road construcion companies use ag tractors with pans to
build and upgrade roads. An outfit in the next county has 6
new CIH on pans, buggies and packers for this type of
construcion. I suspect it is because they are cheaper to
buy than construction equipment and can travel quite fast.
By the way, which dealship in vermilion did the tractor come
from? I know some of the salesmen up there.

Andrew,

You and your dad did a great job. I never liked the black
and grey colour scheme of the quadtracs bonnet.
