MX 270 Fire
2001Case IH MX 270 on fire. The fire started under the cab and spread rapidly over the machine once it got to the diesel and hyd fluid. The tractor had been fueled less than 10 minutes before the fire. My driver did escape without injury but I can't say the same for the tractor. This pic was taken in Arkansas USA on Feb. 21, 2007.

Re: MX 270 Fire
The tractor was fully insured but I haven't settled with the insurance company yet. I doubt we'll ever be able to say for sure what the cause of the fire was as everything on the tractor that wasn't steel either burned or melted.

I've made a deal to replace it with a new 2007 MX305 which should be delivered this week.

Re: MX 270 Fire
My surprise is with your desision, if the problem is in electrical circuit I think it's because Case no build well. If I stay in your position I decide NO continue with Case. Why you decide continue with Case?

Re: MX 270 Fire
I've seen both Case and Deere tractors burn. The new Case I bought was also over $20,000 cheaper than a comparable Deere.

Re: MX 270 Fire
$20,000 is a good reason for continue with Case! and you are right all tractors burn.

Re: MX 270 Fire
That doesn't look so good.
The brother of my Uncle in Canada bought a MX 270 view months ago, really nice tractor, and one of the reasons why they didn't bought a JD was the price, I would have done the same thing, but I prefer a MF :-P Stil, not bad tractors those Case tractors.
