I just purchased a Case 444 this evening. I don't know much about them but feel I got a pretty good deal. Although it doesn't want to start because of the voltage regulator being bad. The owner did prove it would run but jumping it. It is also missing the mule drive for the belly mower. It came with a belly mower, front dozer type blade, and a tiller. It has rear wheel weights and the weights for the front. I only paid 700 for the lot so I feel that I got a decent deal even though it isn't in running order. . . 

 

Hopefully the voltage regulator is the only thing that is wrong with it electrically. . . 

 

Thanks for any input ! ! 

 

 

Thanks, 
 

CJ

:welcome: to GTTalk.
Sounds like a lot of potential. I was wondering wht he jumped to make it run... Do you mean solenoid?

You have picked up a very well  built Garden Tractor. When you get it in working order i'm sure you will enjoy using it.

 

We like pictures here, Also it would be a good idea to download the manuals for your machine.

 

Once you get the electrical system sorted out it would be a good idea to put fresh oil in the motor, hydraulic system and the rear end. The hydraulic system uses motor oil, 20 w 40 seems to work well.

 

Almost forgot Welcome to GT Talk !!

Welcome to GTTalk. I too have a 444 (1971) and love it. Glad to have another Case enthusiast amongst our ranks. BTW, I know your area well. I went to college in Collegedale, TN what seems like forever ago but it was only back in the 90's....which I guess is kinda forever ago.

Welcome to GTTalk. Congrats on the new tractor and if you have any trouble sorting out the charging issue post your questions in the Case forum and you should get lots of help. You should check all the wiring and connections in the charging circuit. There are often bad connections in these older tractors.

Wow! Awesome response! I am super excited !!! He did jump the solenoid but due the voltage regulator being off of the tractor he had to connect more wires to make it run. . .  I will take some pics this afternoon. . . It's no show tractor by any means but I hope to get some good use out of it. . .

Cj here is my neighbor and I'm responsible for talking him into this purchase, hahaha!

 

He will need a new steering wheel as well.  Is there a rather standard wheel out there that accepts woodruff key?  Right now there's a set of vice grips on the steering shaft boogering up the threads (PO's fault).
