As I wait for delivery of my new GC2400L, my thoughts turn to offering my old Case 222 garden tractor up for someone else to enjoy. My hope is that you guys can help me know what it's value is so I know how much to list it for. I am not looking to get rich off of it, just want to be sure I know what a fair deal would be. To complicate things, the dealer that I was working with to acquire the parts I needed to rebuild the engine told me that the tiller itself was worth considerably more than the tractor. I guess these units are hard to find. About 2 years ago I got frisky over the winter and tore the whole thing down, cleaned everything up and replaced the piston, valves, seals, etc in the 12hp kohler (k301 I think?). I also purchased a brand new starter and battery for the unit. It is a very strong running unit, hydraulic oil does tend to overheat if I run the tiller for to long (hour or so). I will usually till for about 30 minutes then let it rest for an hour or so before I run it again. It is quite a package deal I have to offer.

Case 222
model 222-76
Serial 9723458
MMM deck
Tiller
Model J-70 76
Serial M 41945

Case 222 spare parts machine.
Model 222
Serial 9781663
MMM

I have complete service manual and parts list on PDF and printed out. I also have several spare parts that I bought on eBay while I was bored. I have a hitch plate that I fabricated that fits on the lift bar in the back I use for pulling roller or trailer. The motor on the tiller probably needs the seals replaced. It has the extension on it that makes it a 42". Hoping this is enough information for you guys to help me out

Thanks

You have a good $1000 dollars worth of value, if not more like $1500, but I don't price these often. The tillers are 300-500 alone, A 222 Case is 500-800 on their own. A sleeve hitch is about 200-300. A parts machine is another 50-500 depending on condition and negotiations. So mabey that helps.

Actually, I think the parts machine is runnable. My BIL picked it up for me at a garage sale and the front tire broke off while he was loading it. I took the pump out of it shortly there after when I had blown a seal in the other machine. I believe it did run though when he got it.

Kal, I said 50-500 because some people value a parts machine as "parts, non working" while others value it "for the parts that work." Also some people may not see value in having the parts machine when the machine that's being purchased works just fine. It all comes down to what you think you can get for it, obviously it isn't worth as much as the main tractor because it doesn't fully operate, but for someone looking for a 4x4 articulated Case project they will see plenty of value in it. Like they say... "All prices are negotiable." Why else would sellers start out their prices so high.. to get what they really wanted after negotiations ensue lol.

If the parts machine is all there beside the broken spindle I would say $200.
Tiller $300-400
The 222 $300-400
PTO kit $150-200
deck $50-100
Sleeve hitch $150-200'

I'll agree. And the good tractor by itself is roughly $400 to $500. IMHO before you sell it you should really give it a good cleaning.

Value depends upon location. The 222s are not as sought after as the large wheel models. They are quite capable and great tractors, it is just that most people want the large wheels. I would say that the prices everyone has suggested are realistic. I would say you likely would get more money by parting everything out. A spindle for the "parts" tractor is very inexpensive and show up on ebay all the time. I would get it rolling before I offered it for sale. Otherwise it will just be considered a throw in.
If you plan to sell the package, take your time and don't rush into a sale. Your package without a snowcaster is not as attractive right now. However, when Spring hits the tiller demand goes up considerably.

'someone' had a good point and that is you wont get those prices as a bundle. you need to sell them seperately to get near those. otherwise as a package deal youre looking at around half
