Hello all, my name is Chris I'm from Rockland Maine. My Brother is Snotrocket, and after recently buying a Case 448 he suggested I post a new topic introducing myself and my tractor.
So the tractor is a Case 448 not really sure what the exact year is since the previous owner had it painted and the painter lost the serial tag. If i had to place a guess i'd say it is a 1984. After some time of lusting over my brothers 446, i began looking for one through various outlets. I scoured the classifieds, uncle henrys, and of course the forums here. On a whim i posted a want ad on craigslist.(in the farm and garden section) I had several replies but most were either way over budget, or were incomplete. A gentleman in Alfred Maine had this one that he wanted to sell so he could buy another allis-chalmers powermax. He had done some minor repairs like rebuilding the carb and fuel pump and changing the fluids. He had never used it for anything other than riding around, but said it ran good and was in good condition.
The machine's hour meter says 1700hrs, not sure if thats correct. It came with a 44" deck in great condition, a 60"deck thats in good condition but needs bearings i believe, and a snowcaster, chains and wheel weights, a spare mule drive and some misc parts and manuals for the the tractor, deck, and caster. It runs excellent has good power and so far I love the thing. total price $1200.
