I suppose that there is room for argument as to whether this is a Case or an Ingersoll. Factually speaking, the 226's were added to the lineup for the 1984 model year and Jack Ingersoll owned the OPE division at the end of 1983.

I find it interesting that he CHOSE to advertise this tractor as a CASE with no mention of Ingersoll. Presumably that is being done because of the established reputation of Case, as opposed to the somewhat unknown status of Ingersoll. Perhaps there was good reason to repaint the tractor but it was a huge mistake to do what he did from a resale perspective.

I hope that HE likes the end result because between the horrid paint job and the absurdly high asking price, he's going to be able to push desert gravel for many a year to come with that tractor.

While I totally agree with you that we cannot trust our computer screens to deliver the true colour, the fact remains that he botched the paint job.

To some, it doesn't matter. To others, it matters so much that it infuriates.


Try painting a John Deere, a non-OEM colour and see what the reaction would be.

Sounds like a challenge to me. A friend of mine bought a 140H3 about a year ago for $50, I don't think he's done anything with it yet, I'll have to see if I can buy it from him. :sidelaugh:

The only reason I suggested MTF was so that you would be admitted to intensive care when they were done with you. Sending anyone to WFM with such a machine means they won't be heard from again and no one will ever find their body either. :sidelaugh:

Weekend Freedom Machines was JD's slogan for their garden tractor line back in the day but I don't believe that JD is affiliated with the forum in any way. It's about the biggest and best forum out there (as long as your not allergic to green like most of you guys are). I've found over the years that Deere green turns into Federal Reserve green real quick when selling and parting out tractors. The worst thing about JD is they have all their reference material copyrighted.

My mistake.

cp7 is correct.


Weekend Freedom Machines is NOT run by Deere. It is independent of the corporation. My apologies for the gaffe.

WFM has been around for a long time and it is dedicated solely to the Deere brand.

In comparison, this site you are on right now is a few days older than two months in its existence but it too, is dedicated solely to a single brand that, unfortunately, has had three different names in its career.

I'm not sure if I would describe myself as being allergic to green because in some ways, I very much admire John Deere products. We all have our reasons for choosing Colt or Case or Ingersoll tractors over the other brands that are out there. Fans of the CCI tractors ARE most fortunate because they now have access to the largest repository of manuals and support information to be found anywhere on the internet and it continues to grow.

Deere will never allow something similar to happen. That's a shame really. Their tractors are already expensive enough to restore without making people pay for every piece of information about them.

I'm kinda just kidding about the allergic, but I will say that none of my Deeres are running since I've got my 646. :facepalm:
All I can say about your library is :clap: :clap: :clap:. I'm a manual/catalog freak.
