Hi All

 

Ive decided to sell my 448. It runs great, is what i consider good condition, comes with the case 48" snowblower, 43" tiller and it has the mid mount mower deck. Just wondering what you feel would be a good starting point. There are not many for sale that i can guage a price. Thanks all!image2.JPG image2(1).JPG image3(1).JPG

Welcome to GTT. The price is a very subjective and dependent on the local market. I'm in CT and the prices vary from one end to the other. That is only a hundred miles. NY probably varies even more. Ebay may help. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks for the replies. I put it up on craigslist for 2000. I think its a fair price and it gives me a little room to move. I think i'll put it up on ebay if it does not sell soon.

Welcome to GTT.  It's hard to say without seeing the back end and if you have everything to run the tiller.

Where i live what I see would go for around $1200, we are usually higher in nne than ny tho.  That's if all the bearings turn ok and you have all the mount brackets and stuff.

If you have the stuff on back to run the tiller you can add another 350-800, depending on if it is sleeve or 3ph. 

Good luck with your sale, hope you get another tractor and stick around.

I'll have to look into hooking up the tiller. I've never done it and I'm not sure if I even have all the parts. The snowblower is pretty straight forward.

I believe it would be sleeve. I'll take some more pics

Take some pics of the back we could give you a better guesstimate.  Plus it would help in your ad..

You might make more selling attachments separate, but more of a hassle and some attachments just don't sell out of season.  Ebay takes a big chunk out of high priced items then there's the whole shipping thing, just my .02...

 

If it doesn't sell right off and you have time to cleanup the extras might help, the tractor/mower looks good and is 1 year only but getin out of season for mowing... At 2k cash you're looking at the "educated buyer" type of market so the more you can show in good shape the better..

 

"All it takes is 1" the right buyer, lots of people looking for a complete package but can't get past the "package price" a lot of people are broke these days.. especially in the case market

 

Might not want to mount the blower if you don't have weights/chains to go with it, it looks nice with the mower deck on there.  Unfortunately gettin out of season for a mower but good to show that it works.  Blower easier to check off tractor anyway, good luck, try to take some pics of the back....

 

also the tiller makes a nice counter weight hangin off the back for traction in snow

They attached pretty easily, and now ive got a lot of interest in it.

 

Quick question before i sell it. How much do aftermarket engines cost for these? Is there a certain brand that swap in easily and work well? I'd consider keeping it if i could get it to go from 18 HP to say 23-30. Appreciate all the help.

You would probably be looking at $1200 + for an engine. Start looking here: http://www.surplusce..._Start:Electric There is no gaurantee that it will fit. My older Cases have a special short crankshaft power take off for the hydraulic pump. I don't dare try to switch engines. That 18 hp should be plenty of power if it is runnig right. Mine are only 10 hp and 12 hp. Good Luck, Rick

Hi Guys

 

My 448 is not getting gas. I had the fuel pump worked on about 2 years ago with the same problems. I checked the fuel line, and thats fine. I know the fuel pump is built right into the carb, but is there any way for me to work on the carb or the pump? Ive never had this one off. It was a bit pricey the last time this happened. Also, is it a common occurance with this model. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
