Look forward to talking on site.ncsam said:I tried to post this earlier but it didnt seem to pan out. I just got a 1974 model 444 on Thursday. I have already found some minor issues and started the repairs. My brakde band has no lining left, and the brake lock is messed up. I have also torn apart the tiller attachment to find a broken chain. All in all a solid little tractor, a couple of hydralic leaks but runs good overall. Someone painted the frame red, so with the yellow hood and fendors it kind of looks like the Ronald McDonald tractor. The red frame has got to go!!!
Me and a buddy are going to build a log splitter for it. I hope to use it a bunch around the house. My kids want me to get a trailer to pull behind it so we can have a hayride on Halloween. We live in the Foothills of NC and I have not seen any of these little tractors around here.
