Older Case tractor with hydraulic snowblower and 49" mowing deck. 12 HP kohler motor. New turf tires with chains. Runs great. Asking 1,500 or BRO but would prefer to trade for a decent motorcycle (willing to add some cash) Looking for a Honda Shadow, Honda Magna, Kawasaki Vulcan or something similar. Not interested in sport bikes.

This is a CASE of "What you think you see, is not what you will get."

At first glance, this appears to be (paint and decals) a 1978 or slightly later big wheel tractor. But then you notice that all of the frame and undercarriage is painted black. Black frame tractors only happened in late 83 and 84 and the hood/fender combo tells us that it isn't that new. Looking even closer, we see that the fenders are the early flat top models with the short tails on them front and back. We also see that the hood does not have the bump-out on the left side for the exhaust. And that happened in 1976, when the correct colour was Sunset for the tin.

The Seller tells us that the tractor is 12 HP and that would make it a 442 unless someone put a K301 into a 444 because they happened to have one around. At this point, I'm beginning to think that this is a 1971 442 that has been repainted totally wrong and also had the wrong decals put on it.
