Dave Barker wrote on Friday, August 31, 2007 (PDT):I have a 1945 VAIW. It was brought into a little town in B.C. Canada to work in a sawmill shunting box cars. The mill cut box shook used for making the old wooden apple boxes. It stayed there until the 60 s when they quit making wooden boxes and shut the mill down. The local town bought it and put a hokey blade on it controlled with a hand winch. It was used to plow snow off the side walks and the local ice rink. There is a picture in Tractor Photos

We currently have everything painted and working on the tractor but need to get a new military tire, exhaust, and seat. If anyone has any pictures of what the exhaust originaly looks like or what the seat material was please send me an email. Also if you want pictures of our tractor email and I can forward those to you.

Keith wrote on Thursday, December 07, 2000 (PST):Hi Greg, J.I.Case Co. didn't manufacture tractors in Washington DC. The tractor was probably built in Racine, Wisconsin. The War Dept put tags on everything. That's all I know. Good luck.
greg indzeoski wrote on Thursday, July 08, 1999 (PDT):I work for the Saskatchewan Property Management Corporation in Regina, Saskatchewan Canada. Our corporation operates the provinces air hangar service. We currently own a 1945 Case Warehouse Tractor which was apparently purchased in 1947 by the government of Saskatchewan. We believe the tracor was manufactured by the War Department in Washington, D.C. The tractor was used in Saskatchewan to tow the provinces air ambulance planes. I am trying to determine if the tractor we own is indeed the same tractor as shown above and what the history of it might be. I am looking for any assistance possible. Thanks
