My grandpa bought a 442 in the early 70's it is a PK series. He used it on 3 acres for many years, my uncle bought the house next door with 3 acres and used this tractor also until the 80's. My grandpa died and my uncle was the new owner. He abused this tractor by putting in used oil and ran it to death. So when my dad moved into my grandpa's house he got the tractor back but it was too worn out so he bought a wheel horse and my uncle bought a white.My dad put the 442 in the back of the barn, where it sat for years. I thought that one of them traded it in and i was sad cause i used it when i was little and enjoyed it. So when I bought my house in the country I had about 2 acres to mow, I bought a used deere and it died on me shortly later. I was talking with my dad one day and he told me that the old Case was in the back of the barn and I could have it if I wanted it. I went and brought it home and totally went thru it, I rebuilt the mower, new steering parts, etc. that was about 15 years ago and i used it until about 2 years ago. I was in the junk yard and saw a 444 in the pile and bought it for 125 and i am now restoring this tractor. Since then i have aquired a black frame 444, a 75 446, 81 446 with a 3 point hitch that i bought from a wheel horse dismandler friend of mine. I still have my grandpa's tractor but i'm not using it to mow. Sorry it took so long to introduce myself. P.S. I found Tom Arnold on another site the first week i got my computer. I have learned so much about these tractors that I will be a Case man for life.
