Good day- I grew up with green tractors on the farm, but am quickly becoming impressed with JI Case/Ingersoll garden tractors. I teach high school agriculture classes, (15+ subjects- animal science, greenhouse mngt, landscape construction, Wildlife Mngt, Soils, GPS/GIS, Ag Mechanics, Forestry...and the list goes on...and on...) I am excited for my Small Engines class to get started up in about a week, and plan on having the kids learn how to change out the transaxle fluid, oil, change, etc, as well as install a new rectifier and wires, along with solenoid in my newest purchase . Last week I bought a 1978-446 with a replacement B48M 18 hp Onan to add to my fleet of a 1979-446 and 1968 155.

I'm new to this html stuff, so I hope the photos load below. If not, I'll try again.

Here's a pic of the new toy-


Here's two pics of the 79-446...one in summer mode and one in winter mode




And here's a pic of the '68 155 I bought from a retired dairy farmer of over 30 years for $100.


I hope this group is a positive experience for everyone, and I'm sure I'll have a few questionsin the next couple weeks regarding my new purchase, and hope I can contribute where and when I can.

Thanks,

Jason

Welcome.

That's some nice looking equipment. Did you make the doors and front pieces for your cab?
Yes, I fabbed the doors and front shroud this summer, as the original fabric doors were pretty much shot. I plan on re-painting the rest of the cab this summer...

Jason: Welcome to the group! That is a very nice collection you have. You have an impressive background in agricultural science. What a great mix that knowledge must be, along with these very able garden tractors. May have some questions for you in the future in Off Topics when I create my hobby farm garden! :trink: :222: Best Regards, Rich

Rich, thanks for the compliments of my expanding fleet of machines. Like many on here, I'm somewhat a "jack of all trades" for the most part, and was lucky I found a career path where I can use these skills and get paid to putz around all day- either in the greenhouse, mechanics shop, woods, school garden, field, or classroom. I've never felt like I have ever "gone to work", rather "to school" as I learn something new every day- somedays more than than the kids it seems. My current project keeping me busy is raising freshwater shrimp in a 500 gallon indoor recirculating water system. Give me a shout if you have any garden questions. If I don't have an answer, I can refer you to someone who can get you the answer.

Just remember, "green end up & brown end down", and "plant it high and it won't die, plant to low and it won't grow"- this advice eliminates many problems...
