30 HP Case Portable Steam Engine
The 30HP Case steam engine was in production from 1898 until 1916. From 1898 till 1909 the 7 1/4 X 10 sized engine had a rating of 9HP. In 1910 Case adopted a rating system based on the brake horsepower the engine produced. Even though the 9HP engine was virtually identical to the newly rated 30HP model, it sounded bigger! Being one of the best marketing companies this is one of the reasons Case changed the horsepower ratings of their engines. With the rapid expansion and high demand for bigger engines to break open the prairies Case only produced 847 30HP engines making these smaller steamers more desirable.
