Subject: Transmissions in 9350 Case IH.. help me decide...


SW MN and Gold Canyon AZ
Talking with a parts house guy about trannies in these tractors he tells me that caseIH doesn't make some of the parts anymore for the 12 speed manual trannies, he said buy the 12 speed powershift. Or buy the 24 speed hi low tranny and if it goes out (new one $40,0000) you can put the 12 speed powershift in at a lower cost. According to him you can't put the 12 speed powershift in if it had the 12 speed manual.
He says the 12 speed manual tranny is not the best and he likes the 12 sp powershift.
Maybe I shound't worry about this if I am buying a 9350 with less than 3000 hrs on it and I would only put 200 hrs a year on it?? Maybe i'm being paranoid about these trannies ??Tractor would be used for spring and fall tillage only.
I am sure there alot of 9350 owners out there, what has been your experience??

Have a 9170 with the 12 powershift I am not a fan ( mainly because i am a gren guy now) I believe the trans mission was out when it was new, still under warranty. had many years of good service then it went out. repalced with reman transmission, replaced it again 70 hours later. maybe that many hours on it again and no trouble yet. I have a friend that has the 24 speed (i think) in a 9370 and his went out and it sat for 6 months wiating on parts. i sure there are cases where people have great luck. these are just two bad examples.

It can be done, it isn’t easy and you'd need a donor tractor. We put Fuji-Tek's in other equipment but also had a junk yard of 91-93XX donors sitting in the weeds.

Had a 9270 with 12 spd manual shift had 6500hrs on it and never had any transmission trouble. I wouldnt be scared of the 91-93 series case tractors. Sure they can have transmission trouble but so do the green tractors

The powershift is easily the most reliable of the 3 trannys, and stacks up well with the best trannys from any of the other brands. Our natural instinct is to believe that the manuals, being simpler, should be easily more reliable but that is not the case here. Having said that, all things mechanical sometimes fail, and the powershift is expensive to repair (but not more so than the Case manuals). You should refrain from moving the powershift equiped tractors for the first couple of minutes after startup, as I understand they are slow to get lube everywhere. I have used the powershifts for many years and have been fortunate enough to have had no problems. If you do have a tranny failure, the chances of finding good used ones are much greater with the powershift, as they are much more common that the manuals. Good luck with your decision.

nc ia, hancock co.
have a 2000 9350 with powershift , only complaint i have is when it is cold shifting from 6 to 7 it can about knock u out of seat , once the fluid is warmed up good not near as bad,, other thing it will always automatically down shift all the way to first gear when putting the clutch in , kind of irritating , other wise bought it with 2000 hours on it and now has 3500 hrs on and no problem, good luck

Have a 9270 with the 12 sp powershift. Bought it with 3400hrs now have 4700hrs. Been a great tractor, just like anything though alot can depend on how you drive it. If you are going to shift up or down under full torque, it probably won't last long. We have alot of huge hills and I baby the tractor, never shifting under full power. Like others have said also, let the tractor warm up a few minutes before going (I know common sense right?, but I have seen people start a cold tractor and within 30 seconds they are down the road at full throttle, not a tractor I would want to purchase).

I guess they are kind of short lived shifting up and down fully loaded, we run them here by the hundreds pulling sugarcane wagons and scraper pans. They normally have failures around 25,000 hours. The operators are whoever has a pulse and breathing air getting paid an incentive on total pounds hauled out on production of the harvest unit trust me; nothing is babied around. "Dive it like you stole it" is the motto on a contractor harvest unit

I haven’t been around rebuilding a Fuji-Tek in several years, but we use to fix them totaled out in our shop for $3,500-5,000 depending on if it needed drums or not.

Chris in TN fixed a STX-450 Quad-Trac in his shop for under $5,000 last year and could have done it for less he said on his posting.

Wow,25,000 hours. I thought my 9250 with 5000 trouble free hours was doing pretty good.

We have 2 9260's we use for hauling silage and manure and shift under load all the time. I quit worrying about the reliability of them after reading a bunch of FlaVeggieFarmer posts a few years ago.

If you have any inclination to ever hook this tractor in front of either a grain cart or a manure tank get the powershift.

 

A 4wd in front of a manure tank isn't my first choice but I'd think a 4wd with a ps and a pto would be pretty nice for a grain cart.

Get the powershift, cannot get reman synchros anymore at all. They can get you a reman powershift or reman yours about anywhere.

Finding a 9350 with low hrs ,powershift AND PTO is a needle in a haystack. I have been looking.

Paxton, IL
go with the powershift. It's not by any means the best powershift out there but it holds together without any trouble. We've run several of them for years with no issues. Replaced a solenoid once IIRC. We traded off a 9250 with powershift on a 9350 with the 24 speed hi-low a few years back and it's been one of the bigger mistakes we ever made. That thing is a real pain in the rear. Haven't really had any mechanical problems but it's a pain to shift. We've got 2 older guys who still help out but they can't run it because they physically can't get the tractor in gear.
