Hello All!

It is good to see this Forum getting started and to have the knowledge base of experts that i'm sure that we'll have (myself not included) :grin:

I'm from Arkansas where there aren't many Ingersolls...some Cases and I doubt any Colts.
I currently own two Ingersolls and numerous attachments/implements for them.

there's not but one Ingersoll dealer left in the state, which is who I use when needed and he is over 200 miles from me...so that should tell you that I am a pretty diehard Case/Ingersoll fan!

Anyway, glad to be here and look forward to participating in this forum in the future! :clap:
Regards,
Arcaseing

So far you win the most southern member award. (I think). You might want to sell that Snowcaster that you got with your package in the For Sale Section. Another benefit you will receive from being a member here is that we can save you that 200 mile trip to the dealer for that $20 part (I was going to say $2 part but I don't think there are any). Two fine gentlemen have accepted the invitation to join here. Both are Dealers. Both have excellent reputations. They can mail most parts faster than you can make that trip. There will be more about them shortly. Thanks for joining.

Thanks for coming over Arcasing. We hope to meet all your Case-related needs. There is still much for me to do on the site yet but that's what happens when you have two pushy partners. :sidelaugh:

Richie,
There are others but like most Long Islanders, they're reluctant to come out of the closet.

I know the feeling, we don't have a dealer in the Country. LOL

But luckily we have the Dealer connection on site.

Tom H and Brian have helped a lot of CCI enthusiast on many forums and I'm glad that they are part of this new site.

I could be for now I guess but those members from Texas are probably further south than me, anyway it's good to have some more members from south of the Mason-Dixon line in the group.
I 've actually forgotten :wtf: where the Mason-Dixon line was but I'm pretty sure that I'm south of it :smile:

I actually had a Case snowcaster that came with a Case 222 with 38" deck, Case cart and Case sweeper. I later sold the Snowcaster (SB 38?? maybe, in Like new condition) to a guy from up North that came by the dealer that I use.

Believe it or not, That Case 222 (1981 Model) was the first Case lawn/Garden tractor that I had ever seen. I actually didn' even know that Case had ever sold L & G tractors. At the time (2003) I was just getting going with the Internet and all So I knew nothing of all of these forums/groups.

That Case 222 was at a small equipment business that I drove by every Thursday afternoon when I was headed back home from my Electrical Utility Construction job (at the time) in North Arkansas. I was intrigued by the Case so I stopped to look at it and a couple of JD's that he also had. Theywere a little newer than the Case and weren't the cheap L series like found in the Box stores now, but I was impressed with the heavy duty build of the Case and liked it better than the JD's there.

I bought the tractor and attachments that were with it and the rest is History ...as they say. That Case 222 still had the dealer sticker on it...it came from a dealer in Florriast, MO.
So I call the dealer after I've had the tractor for a month or so, just to ask a few questions and learn a little about Case tractors, it was then that I was given the Forbidden knowledge :cry: by this dealer that these same basic tractors were STILL being built with the INGERSOLL brand name.

You can see where this is heading now, can't you? :cry: :cry: To make an even longer story short, after researching Ingersoll extensively and doing a short demo with a new(and short lived) Ingersoll rep in the area (Stutgart, AR) on a 316LGT and a 4018. A short time later I found myself and my wife and daughter (5 yrs old at the time) in my Pickup on the way to Missour to a small dealer to get an Ingersoll 4020 PS :thumbup: with the RM 60 mower deck.

Now I've got a 18' x 22' shed full of Ingersoll attachments and 2 tractors, which then led to a Zero turn mower, a couple of Push mowers and wheel trimmer plus the hand held equipment that a "part time" lawn care business has to have.(that I decided I would start when I bought that first Ingersoll 4020 PS...you know, just to make enough to make the Garden tractor payment) :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

I believe that I have to pin the "blame" on all that has transpired since then on seeing that old Case 222 at that small engine repair shop back in 2003 :wink:

Lastly, If the two dealers are the one from Wisconsin (Tom) and Michigan (Brian) then I(and my Checkbook) :cry: am already aquainted with them and they are fne people as well as very knowledgable and helpful to people like me with this "affiction" that we deny that we have! I know that I don't have it as I can stop anytime that I want to!!! :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:
