Jim said it nicely, but, I drove the 444 again and thought Maybe the hydriv is not too bad and I should fix my 222. I never needed the 444 and hate the hi wheel of it, but boy did I like my 222 the first I used it to mow with. Heck, all it needs is a rattle chased out and the motor mounts replaced...

Casey... a couple things...First saying the hydrive isn't to bad is like saying Vince Lombardi is a football coach. Second, if you get the tools that tractor can be completely disassembled in a Saturday afternoon, then reassembled Sunday. They aren't real complex, and with good amount of energy you can do it... So take some of the proceeds from the sale of your 444 put it away, then set your budget so you allow yourself room and time to enjoy your 222, Who knows maybe you'll find a nice trailer, or new plow, or some other implement that will make the tractor real nice to use.

Now for that 'rattle' that is drivin ya nuts. take off the non essential stuff Hood, Seat, Then start the tractor, did the rattle go away? If not get a couple of people relatives, friends and start the tractor have them listen too...if that still doesn't yield any results...start at the front and put wrenches on each fastener, whatever it is will surface...

I have seen, on the 224's not my 222 but you may want to look at the very bottom of the motor where the motor mounts bolt up. I have had to helicoil 2 of them now because when they came loose the previous owners never tried to fix em and just drove the tractors...
Here is my 'write up' on it...better yet this is the first pic...if you need the rest of the write up I will start a thread here for ya...

this will give you some idea, ...don't be intimidated this is not a tough repair and really simple...when you're done you will say 'that was not to difficult'...

I was thinking that either the balance gear in the engine or the coupling between motor and pump... Both of which will take time.

I'll bet it will take longer to analyze the results of this poll than to actually fix it! :poke: :poke:

I suggest keeping the 222, buying a Ford LGT, also a Massey MF16, a John Deere 430, and a couple of other various colors since you tend to have a hard time deciding.

First,earn some brownie points, dinner and flowers for the wife,it usually becomes important later, and may not be a bad idea anyway. then sit back and wait for the next "must have deal" to fall into your lap.

Casey that's a good dilemma to have. All the choices look good to me. Just pick the one that feels right and go with it. There will always be another deal just around the corner.
