Hey guys,I have sort of been looking for a while for a Case garden tractor,but now that I have joined this forum,I am looking forward to acquiring one .Be it a Case, a Colt,or an Ingersoll,I really want one now.The problem is,they are somewhat few and far between here where I live,and if and when one does come up for sale,they usually want all outdoors for it.But I am going to keep looking,sooner or later one is bound to turn up and be a good deal.

Maynard,
As you know, I'm in Ontario. For sure, we do have more Case tractors here than you will likely come across in all of the eastern provinces. Just the same, it's rare that anyone posts a Case for sale around here for a price that is what I call reasonable. In fact, I gave up looking for them a couple years ago and turned my attention to the US market. Since Colts were never sold in Canada as a new product, your chances of finding one of those north of the border is slim. The two I have came from the US and the other collectors near me also went south to pick theirs up.

If you want a tractor to use at your homestead then I suggest that you seek out a 200 or 400 series that was built in 1971 or newer. If you like the Desert Sunset and Power Red paint scheme, then 1971 to 1976 are the machines to seek out. If you prefer the Power Red with Power White wheels, then 1977 and later have those colours with a couple minor variances.

Low cost buys can often be found on Craigslist Pennsylvania. There are creative ways to get tractors shipped. Jack and I do it often.

If you are serious about buying a Case or Colt or Ingersoll, then you are going to have to give the above some serious consideration.

I will keep looking.The U.S. idea may just be the way to go.

I am looking more to collect than use,and there are actually a few models that I would like to get a hold of.I would even like to have a Colt,as I like that color scheme.

I mentioned this on another forum a while back,but I know where there is a 155 Case and a 446 Case. But the 155 is in pieces,with a few pieces missing,and the 446 is rough and has the Onan "knock".Here is the all outdoors prices I was talking about,the guy wants $500 for the 155,and $1600 for the 446.That's what I mean about pricing around here,it's crazy.

In the mean time,I will just drool over those like Jack's 2712,although I am sure I will never find one of those,but a guy can dream. :grin:

Crazy is right, that could buy 3- 4 tractors "down here"

Crazy Canucks, we are sometimes referred to. LOL

In Sask you might be allowed to test drive one for that amount of money. LOL

Keep looking Maynard, the right deal will show up.

When you finally find your baby it will be all you expected, I am excited for you, the first time i sat on a Case I knew it was something special.

It's like crack, it only takes one time and you are hooked. ( at least that's what my wife said to me all those years ago....) :sidelaugh:
