I just picked up a case 444. Anything I should look for or maintenance?
Runs and drives, but there's a gap between the current condition and perfect. Previous owner rolled it once because it freewheeled downhill.
Doesn't look too bad - very little rust. It appears to have spent a good portion of it's life inside.
It hasn't been used much in the past 10 years and none in the past 2. It was able to start and run and once the old gas was through the system, it starting running nicely with no smoke.
The previous owner told me that it would overheat and stop. Driving from the trailer to the garage, it stopped and wouldn't start. When I get some time, I need to re-diagnose the problem - fuel, fire, etc.
Seller thought it was a 1975. The numbers on the tag appear to agree.
Doesn't have a 3pt, rear PTO or mower deck.
Once I get this running, I may be in the market for a mower deck.
I've been wanting a big-wheel case for a while and this one called my name.
