I'm looking to get a Case/Colt/Ingersoll to actually mow with and not be a trailer queen. I have a pretty small yard, with a couple of fence gates at about 30 inches. I'd like to not defect from our beloved brand... was there ever anything this small branded CCI?

There's a 1972 Huffy 26" rider close by for sale that's pretty cute, but I'd prefer to stay in house if possible.

Help me out experts - smallest cut available on anything branded CCI?

Thanks,
Chris

Chris, you can look at the 100 series and see if you like that for mowing but personally, I would just use a 200 series for your mowing needs. If thats too big then it looks like you are going to be using a push mower

Yeah, I use a push now and the exercise is good for me. I was just curious, as I never really looked into how small the little 100 series LT's got. I only have about 30 inches in my yard gates to get through.

I don't really need the rider. It's just more of an experiment to see if I can find one that would work. After all, I still have room in my shed for another :lol:

I think you need to measure that gate opening to see what you actually have. The smallest deck for the 80 RER's is a 30" cut. You will likely need a 36" opening to get in and out without contact.

We have seen quite a few RER's come up for sale in recent months and covered them in the Classifieds forum. There were some decent units that sold for $300.00 on average.

Mark, thanks for finding that and for the offer. At nearly 8 hours (Terre Haute, IN), I think that's outside of how far we're willing to drive, simply because it adds almost $200 in gas costs to any purchase. However, it's interesting to see that these do come up fairly often.

I'll take some more detailed measurements and start looking for one of these in my area.

Thanks all,
Chris
