Hey Guy's,

I've been a member for over a month now and decided that it was time to make it official and introduce myself. I'm 27 years old and turning into a huge Case/Ingersoll fan. One of my best friends had a Case 224 that his dad (who worked for Case) helped him restore in high school and that is where my interest began. After seeing a picture of a 400 series a couple years back, I was hooked. Last year we purchased our first house and that's when I decided to start looking for a lawn mower. Of course I ended up purchasing two case 446's. One ran good, and the other was a parts tractor. I continued searching the web for information and realized the capabilities of these machines. Then I purchased a black frame 448 with a snowblower,tiller, and dirt blade. That's when I realized I had a problem. I was addicted!!! Anyway, I sold the 446's and only have the 448 now. At some point, I would like to purchase a real nice, original 448. I'm glad to have joined this forum and excited to continue learning about these awesome machines! Thanks a lot.

Nate,
Welcome to the site! :usa: :usa: :usa: We're glad you joined and entered our little world of CCI tractors! And thanks for stopping in for an introduction. We believe that this is the best site for CCI tractors because there is more valuable info and help here than anywhere else. So please feel at home here, we have a great membership! :thumbsup: At the top of this forum is a "STICKY MESSAGE" with the title "How to get the best out of this site." viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4550 It is in your best interests to read that message prior to posting on the site for the following reasons.

1. We do things a little bit differently here and the message will explain how this forum works so that you will not run into problems navigating the site.

2. It points out features on the site that would otherwise take you months to realize are there. Knowing where to find those features, often keeps new members from asking unnecessary questions and instead, allows them to focus on obtaining more important information about their tractor.

3. One of our leaders is "Hilda" and she gets testy when people don't read that Sticky. (Have you seen how big she is in her Avatar , we try to keep her well fed and happy...) Can you blame her? After all, she has spent countless hours working with the Team here to put this site together for the members and all she asks is a few minutes of your time to read a message. But relax. It's all in good fun and we usually have Hilda on a tight leash.

So.... please.... go and read the Sticky and then explore the site.
We look forward to talking with you on the site!

:222: :446: Best Regards, Rich

Welcome! :222: I'm from the Oshkosh, WI area. Where are you located? I'm close to your age. Maybe we will run into each other sometime and talk some Case smack! :grin:

Thanks for the welcoming guys.

Bart, I'm sorry to disappoint you. I sold those two 446's because I purchased a 448 with a tiller,snowblower,blade, and holding valve. The last 446 I sold had an engine with both connecting rods broke. It had some good parts that I saved and I sold the rest to 1031d. He is much more mechanically inclined than myself and I'm sure he will be able to make something of it.

Mjoe7, I live near the Burlington, East Troy area. Oshkosh is about 2 hours away. Sometimes when we go up north, we take hwy41 right passed you. I have to say that your post on youtube with the 448 is part of the reason I have so much interest in the Case/Ingersoll brand. That thing looks awesome!!! I'm very jealous of your collection.

Thank you. I appreciate the positive remarks. I like to post the vids for people to see. I think the Colt/Case/Ingersoll's are to often underestimated be the majority of people and the videos prove their durability and the nay sayers wrong. :thumbup:
