I`ve apparently caught the Disease....I almost wrecked when I spotted the herd of Case`s at the auction lot I drive past every day on my commute to work. I have no real reason to buy one of these things but I`ve got the urge.... I don`t really know anything about these things and need a quick primer education before the auction tomorrow.
I saw the Hydraulic drive label on some of the machines and sort of understand but what other doors does this open as far as attachments, etc. Saw some with Hyd valve on rear fender for ??? 3pt ??
What are the difference between the 400 and 200 ...600 series.
Attachments for these things and how do you attach them ??
The 646 really grabbed my attention with FEL and 3 pt
I have a desire to get as narrow as possible rototiller capable machine to clean between the rows in the garden.30 inches wide would allow me to do 3 foot rows in garden.
My 1500 Ford is minimum 4 1/2 ft wide , the Shibauara 14 is 4ft and has a very capable tiller although it looks like ocean waves after I get thru the garden. The Gravely LI may be the ticket but then you leave the footprints behind...I`m also getting old and prefer to ride....get more than enough walking at work. The modern Scotts /Ardisam rear tine is only 20 inches wide but kills my shoulders. The real Original Snappin Turtle would work good to mow the weeds down but I haven`t figure out how to make it plow yet.
Sorry thinking out loud ...trying to justify my urge to bid on the Case tomorrow. I`m trying to read thru some posts here to learn what I can quickly but don`t have a whole lot of time today. I don`t know how much interest there will be in this herd....this is Cub, A ,Super A and 100 series international country around here...no snow to plow or blow very often so I`m not sure how many buyers there will be. Man might be able to get a steal on some of these. The Demonstrator looked really interesting but may go for a high price...whats High??
What would be a steal for some of the different models and a what is a good price. Some are really good looking clean complete...just need an engine....value of them ?? I know I`m asking for a lot but I`ve always got good info and help on the forum here...and it is always appreciated.!!
