This is a Case 190 or 195 tractor. It is a hydraulic drive tractor. It has 15" real wheels and is bigger than most garden tractors. It has a hydraulic tiller on the back and a hydraulic blade on the front. It runs and drives good. 503 932-0323

The errors abound in this ad.

I would not say that a Case GT is bigger than most garden tractors out there, would you? I guess that this seller has never seen a 400 series Deere. Of course, he is also wrong about the claim of 15" wheels because the "real" wheels on this tractor are 16" . He did get it right about it having hydraulic drive and that is a rare occurrence in listings. Most people use the "hydrostatic" word instead.

In my opinion, the tractor is most likely a 1968 Case 195. The positioning of the PTO seems strange to me. The tiller has been stripped of its safety shields and that does not inspire me too much. I'd value the tiller at $75.00 because of this. Simply put, the tiller is now a hazard looking for a place to have an accident with someone.

The front blade is not a Case item either and therefore put its value at ZERO because you might not be able to find anyone to buy it from you.

The tractor does have the optional E-30 Hylift kit and that's a bonus .

This is a difficult tractor to value due to all of the above. If the PTO is not OEM, then it has little to no value except to someone that wants to go rototilling with this tractor. It is missing both of the grille side panels but other than that, the rest of the tractor appears to be nice and straight. It always comes down to how bad you want this tractor and how scarce they are in your area as well as what you want to do with it. To me.... it's worth $400.00 to $500.00.

This is the one I posted about earlier. The owner had two case tractors that she wanted "byby". She wanted $1200.00 for this one. Obviously this guy got it cheaper,but.... see Hydriv's post.

We never did see the rear of that 195 when she was trying to sell it. All we saw was it sitting next to the other Case full-size ag tractor. If she paid $1500.00 for that 195, then that is most unfortunate.

I wonder why this guy is selling it and what he ended up paying. It is still a long way off from his asking price. I see much better 195's come up for sale for a lot less money.

I spoke with the owner that placed this ad. He was nice to speak with and has a small collection of early Case tractors of his own. He said the tractor in question had been repowered with a Tecumseh and had homemade hydraulics with brass valves to control front or rear implements. He did not mention the price he paid and I did not ask. I did ask if he had to buy both tractors to get the 190 and he said no. He gave the previous owner a price which she said was too low. A few days later she took a new offer that was a bit more that his original price. He has since sold the tractor.

Thanks for that report.

Everything you told us makes the tractor worth less than the figure I previously assigned to it. With the original engine gone and who knows what done to the hydraulics, I wouldn't pay more than $150.00 for it. And I still maintain that it's a 195 and not a 190.
