I swear I didn't paint this 220 it's current color scheme and  there should be a law against such things. I scrounged this 220 up over the last couple of days in Missoula MT. It came with a 38" mower deck and this nasty paint job as standard. It starts and runs without a hitch and all and all is in very good shape. Maybe I can sell it to the John Deere lovers as a secret experimental super long lasting very tough little tractor and this is the only one of it's kind. Just for giggles I posted a picture of this fine machine in the John Deere gallery. What can I say, I'm a bit of  a troublemaker.

I see nothing wrong with the colors, in fact I see nothing wrong with it.

I fired up the little Case Deere tonight and used it to mow the lawn, it did a fine job and that is with dull blades and no tune up. I think it might be a keeper. I have a mower I rebuilt for my 444 but with the loader in place the mower won't go on. Does anybody have any idea if the mower built for the 444 will fit on the 220? Same thing goes for my snowcaster for the 444.

Well to keep in tune with everything green/yellow, of you do decide to sell it you can double the price of what you paid. Of course this is coming from a former JD collector.

Oh and yes the mower will fit. I have an H46 from a 446 on my 226. Only thing I worry is how the K241 will handle that big deck with the hydrive system pulling on it.

Yes both will fit. You will need shorter lift links for the deck to work on the 220 as well as different belt sizes for both the blower and deck.

The 220 Case Deere will have its hands full with a 48" deck and blower though. If you got a 44" deck that would be better. I wouldn't put a 48" snow blower on the 220 even if it does fit. Not enough power.

 

Funny picture though. Thanks for sharing. ;)

The hydriv system uses very little power. It's the oil pump mounted to the back of the engine that limits the pulling power at the drive wheels. This is where some people have said the pump is good for only 12 to 14 hp before the pressure relief valve cracks open and squeal's stopping the wheels while the engine is still running and not killed. An Onan powered Case easily does this and barely bogs down.

I found it's still enough power to lift the frontend up while plowing hard ground even with 60 lbs on the front. I just did this yesterday plowing with my 448. It does the job just fine. :dancingbanana:

 

Keep in mind a Ingersoll 4000 series has one pump capable of delivering oil to power steering, rear hydraulic tiller, drive wheels, and hydraulic lift operating all at the same time with no hesitation.

Simply awesome.
