Case lawn tractor question

Recommended Posts

KraigRG
Drove by a Case lawn tractor the other day that was for sale. I am going to stop and look at later in the week if I get a chance. Anyone know if Case made their own lawn tractor or if someone else made them for Case? Also anyone had experience with these. Looks almost like an old Broadmoor. I'd say it was made sometime in the '60s. Has a snowblower and mowing deck that also look similar to Simplicity. I'll try to take pics if I stop and look. Thanks, Kraig

Case, Colt and Ingersoll are all the same machines... I think Colt was the original company which also made Case machines. Colt was then later bought by Ingersoll, as I recall... Certainly could be wrong, but I think that's the case -- no pun intended... :O

Colt was one of the pioneers of the all hydraulic tractor and made an excellent machine before most companies knew what a hydrostatic transmission was. Like Simplicity and Allis, Casesaw Colt and colt was gone. Case built an excellent tractor for many years untill times got tuff and then Ingersol takes the helm. I think like Allis with Simplicity, Case's were built in the old Colt plant throughout, but I'm unsure of that. Anyway the tall wheel Case's are an excellent tractor and still command a steep price in most area's. Parts are a little costly for major componets. JW

Orginally called Colt and then Case and now Ingersol. Case garden tractors were either the 200 series with the 12" wheels or 400 series with the larger (15"?) rear wheels. The singles were Kohlers and the twins were Onan. So a 222 was a 12hp Kohler and the 444 was a 14hp Kohler and the 448 was an 18hp Onan. They are a hydraulic drive NOT a hydra-static drive. The good: They are a well built tractor with some clever hydraulic driven attachments. The bad: The engine sits in backwards and blow all engine heat back to the driver. In the summer the dash can get so hot you can burn yourself. The mower deck is crude (square with no rounded corners) and does a poor job of mowing (not even close to a simplicity cut) plugs easy and scalps. You need a very smooth lawn with the Case.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
