Thought I'd share my latest project with you guys. I notice a Case tiller, and snow/dirt blade for sale on ebay the other day, and to my surprise it was located down here in south Texas, about 250mi. from me. I contacted the seller, and he said they came off his 444, which he said he wanted to sell as well. I said, how much, and he said $300, I then said SOLD! I was able to get the tiller, and blade off ebay for another $300, so I paid $600 total, and he thew in the mower deck, and a rusty Brinly plow, not to mention the tractor was equipped with a 3 point, and hydraulic PTO!!
Its going to need some work, as he told me it smoked, and burned oil. The starter/generator was out as well, so I dropped it off at my local starter rebuild shop, and it should be ready today. I think for now, I'm going to try, and fix it up mechanically (including rebuilding the engine), and make it look presentable. Knowing me though, I'll probably start with the engine, and then before I know it, I'll have it stripped down to the frame sandblasting it! Maybe I'll be able to resist the urge.
I already ordered a set of 9.5-16 AG tires for the rear to replace the 8-16 turfs, and it will get tri-ribs in the front. Anyone looking for good prices on this size of AG tire should really check this place out, as they beat everywhere I looked by almost $75 a tire!http://nebraskatire....olf/lawn-garden Anyway, here are a few pics.
