41" from outside of left tire to the outside of the right tire. I also remeasured the tire width and they are between 9 1/4" and 9 1/2" wide. Guess I wasn't as exact as I had thought this morning.

Thanks.

Thanks a bunch, looking at getting a 446 but was scared it wouldnt fit through my gate, shouldnt be much difference in rear width from the 444 to a 446.

mixedbreed96,

Best I know, there are no significant structural (dimensional) differences between the 444 and 446, as long as you are looking at and comparing similar years. My 444 is a '71 for what it's worth. I believe I read somewhere that the engines might be different. Good luck.

The 446 had a torque monster opposed twin cylinder Onan engine. Later the frame was notched out to allow the engine to sit lower. Also later in 1979-ish the frame was lengthened on the 400 series.
Otherwise as stated above everything stayed the same. Still uses the same rearend, pump, front end as the 444.
I believe it was 1972 for the first 446.

I found this from my 1971 Case Planning Guide. Thought you'd like.

Mjoe, would you take a look at the tractor in the upper left corner, of the multi-tractor brochure, and tell me if you can tell if it has a bracket extending from the side of the dash console that is supporting the rod that turns the chute? I've been looking for a pic that shows the bracket that fits the bolt holes and I haven't found one yet. Thanks again for the brochures, wicked cool.

Im not seeing any kind of bracket or a picture that would give me concrete evidence of such a thing. The snowcasters had a bracket welded to the lift arm for that rod. The older tractors before the 200 and 400 series had a bracket like you described.

Mjoe,

Here's the basis for my confusion. You'll see in the pic below that there are two separate cranks for the chute depending on what model of snowcaster is used.

#33 & #39.png

You can see below that #33 is used on the J84 while the #39 is used on the L, M, N, P, R models.

Because of the "joint block" on my model it appears that you'd need two stablizers unless the one on the lift arm is above the "joint block". Am I making sense or talking jibberish here?

Your talking jibberish... Haha! I see what you mean. The joint block is what provides the stablization. I have seen these before. The block keeps it from folding in. Give me a day or so. I might have or know someone with this joint block. Not positive, but if I do I will get a picture of it.

Well, just got word from my wife that the snowcaster housing has been picked up from the high school and is awaiting my inspection at home. This day can't go fast enough. Of course I'll post pics of the work later, that's just a given. :dancingbanana:

Auger was primed last night and is curing ahead of top coating.

I have a E80 snow blower in the back shed with a joint block on it also, could get some measurements off it if needed.

WAY OFF TOPIC...............I've been busy in the garage as well as in the house with 4 great kids. I'll post some pics of the progress from the garage but I thought while I've got a chance I'd give you all a sneak peak at my 5th grade daughter's school project we've been working on all day. She and a friend put together all the claymation figures and boy did they do a great job. Enjoy.



Sometimes the tractors must take a back seat to kiddos...... :thumbs:
