Hello everyone. I just found this site and it is exactly what I've been looking for.
I'm from Fort Erie, Ontario and have spent the last 20 years of hobby time restoring vintage Volkswagens. Doing another Bug just is not in me.
I would like to restore a small Case garden tractor.
Any suggestions?
Thanks for your time and efforts. :canada:

I really have not decided, but my inclination is to buy a beat up old tractor that is mechanically sound and restore it to original specs.
Thank you for your kind reply. :canada:

welcome from Saskatchewan :thumbsup:

Any Case would be a good choice, I prefer Lo Pro. a 224 would be my choice.

Look through the classified section and they will give you a few tips on selecting a Case.

Welcome to the site Ariena, we're glad you joined! :trink: :trink: :trink: This is the place for CCI tractors. I think it all depends on what you looking to do. The colts and older 130,155, 180 Case tractors are considered by most as collector tractors although some members do work them. You have the 200 series which are the low wheel models and the 400s which are the high wheel tractors, both series are in strong service but many members restore them to pristine condition. There are a large variety of interchangeable attachments for most models of these series. Best of both worlds so to speak.There are also older Case 600 series front end loaders. I would keep reviewing all the posts daily and learn more in terms of the big picture. Tractors are posted daily and many members have scored great deals, some in their backyards. Most tractors posted for sale are commented on by members and administrators which is a great way to learn more about each model.
:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I agree with Introubleallthetime that you should spend some time reading here prior to making a decision on which model to buy. The bulk of your time could be spent in The Classifieds section reviewing the many threads about tractors that have come up for sale. That section will do several things for you such as showing you what the various models look like and also what you should have to pay for them. I'm embarrassed to say this but your chances of finding a REASONABLY PRICED tractor on this side of the border will be slim. However, if you read the Classified's forum every morning, there's a good chance that something suitable will show up within a 2 to 3 hour drive from Fort Erie in New York State. Your focus should be on something that is not beat up. The tractor should have nice straight tin on it everywhere and it should be complete and unaltered. Kohler powered models would be best as the engine can be rebuilt for a lower cost than the Onan powered ones.
