Is there a bargain here?


First off, we have another Seller who doesn't know what he owns.

The Sunset tractor is 1975 or earlier (1972), hard to tell with this dinky photos taken at a distance.

The red tractor might be as new as 1978, again hard to say.

First we look at all the other stuff and value it.

-single furrow sleeve hitch plow - $75.00

- single furrow sleeve hitch plow- $75.00

- sleeve hitch harrow - $100.00

- roto tiller - $300.00

- 3 pt hitch - $400.00

- F27 adapter $125.00

- one pair of cast iron wheel weights - $125.00

- one pair of cast iron wheel weights plus front bracket $150.00

- rear PTO kit - $150.00

- set of tire chains $40.00

- snow/dirt plow blade - $200.00


- two non-operating 446 tractors - $600.00


If you can make use of all that stuff or you don't mind the hassle of selling off individual pieces, it looks like the value is there. I'd wave ten Benji's in his face and see whether that would do it. If I ended up splitting the difference, I'd still go home with a smile on my face.

I don't think so.

The way I took it was that that there were two tractors, one tiller, one blade, two plows and one harrow plus the chains, hitch, adapter and weights.

I don't believe that there is another tiller beyond the one hanging off the Sunset 446.

You failed to notice/account for a 3 pt hitch and sleeve adapter, another $500. And, no doubt, at least one set of glass headlight lenses--$100.
The photos in the listing show a 3pt on the Sunset tractor. We cannot see the rear of the red tractor. However, the words used by the Seller are these.

Two Case 446 tractors very late 70's or possibly early 80's models


1 tractor has a mower deck


the other has tire chains, weights, rear power take-off, and hydraulic 3-point hitch.


There are additional attachments including a blade and rototiller(both Case), 2 plows, and a cultivator(Brinley).

Both of these tractors are hydrostats. They have Onan BF model engines. They ran fine 2 years ago, but they have not been run since. Both crank over, they probably need the fuel systems cleaned out and carbs gone through. The seats and amp gauges are hail damaged. We inherited a larger 4-wheel drive tractor and no longer have a use for these.


BTW.... are you trying to jack up the price of the 777's? :sidelaugh: I allow $75.00/pair for a complete set in good condition.

$1500 OBO -- please put "Cases" in the subject line if you respond by email, phone is preferred 3 03-637-73 57. More pictures available.

I made allowance for the one hitch and adaptor. I made no allowance for glass headlamps for two reasons. ONE- there is no photo that proves either tractor even has headlamps. TWO, The Sunset tractor could be an early 76, a 75 or a 74 and would have plastic lenses, not glass ones. Perhaps I'm wrong. I've been wrong in the past. If the Sunset is a 72 or 73, then glass headlamps SHOULD be present. But what if they got smashed? What if they got removed? I've seen too many of the old tractors with no lamps in them.

Tom,
Mine is a '74 and has 777's on it. But there again I'm not the original owner and don't know if the plastics had been replaced with glass. :headscratcher:

And I've not taken the time to check the parts books to see if Case EVER made a distinction between the two types of headlamps by issuing separate parts numbers. So..... I'm guessing whether ALL 74 models had plastic lenses or that the change came part way through the production run.

Sometimes........the parts books will make a notation that says "tractors prior to PIN 9563852 used part # C10319. Tractors after PIN 9563851 used part # C 241880" I just made all those numbers up to make my point. BG.... you could use your PIN, locate the parts manual, find the headlamp part number and see whether such a notation exists. If not, you could go to the next parts manual....both before and after the one you are looking in and see what part numbers they use for the headlamps. If the one AFTER shows a new part number, then we could do an amendment to the headlamp FAQ that shows the starting PIN's for all the 220, 222, 224 and 444's that were fitted with the plastic lenses. Of course, you would have to do the same thing for the 446's because Onan powered tractors use a separate parts manual.

Sounds like fun?????? Go for it.

Ad is gone, guess it sold?

I think a lot of value and average selling price is location, there are some Case's in Missouri, a few in Kansas and a lot less further west.

If had been looking to buy a Case GT and couldn't find any for sale and this sale came up locally, this packaged deal doesn't seem too high. Sure I have seen deals much better 300-500 miles away but it would have taken anywere from a couple hundred to five hundred to freight it or drive to pick it up.

Take the Pawn Stars TV series, almost all the people walk in the store asking for some insane amount they want to sell something for and they walk out with it sold for a lot less.
