Selling my Case 222 garden tractor, unsure of the exact year. 12hp Kohler model K301 engine (starts right up, runs like a champ, no smoke, no leaks), hydriv hydrostatic tranny with high and low range, hydraulic lift for the 44" K44 mower deck. This tractor is like BRAND NEW. There is no rust at all on it. Last year I sandblasted and painted the wheels and installed new front tires, also sandblasted and painted the mower deck and replaced all the bearings, idler pulley, both drive belts, and installed a new set of gator mulching blades. Only mowed with it 3-4 times since this work was done but it has an extremely nice cut. You won't find anything built this well at the local big box store!
Please, serious inquiries only, no scammers, CASH ONLY! Will take a reasonable offer. Can assist with delivery if needed. A few more pics available upon request.
The deck MAY be correct. Do you notice the Mule bracket and harness? Those items are black. This deck and Mule MAY have been slated to go on a 1984 Black Frame tractor. The reason I say MAY is because he declares it to be a K deck and I'm not sure that Case was still using the K Series decks in 1983. I would think that an L Series would be more likely but so far, I have no information to pinpoint the year when certain letters came into use. My guess is that some dealer still had that white deck around in his inventory and some previous owner needed a new deck. This guy just went with the existing paint scheme because he didn't know any better. It doesn't seem likely that he came up with the correct color scheme all on his own
