Case 442 Tractor

Hey Guys,
Got a Case 442. Not sure what I really have or what it might be worth.
The plate on the tractor has: Model - 442; No - 9633069.
The plate on the engine has; Model # K301 A, Serial No - E008849, Spec No - 47306B.
Do these numbers mean anything to you all? Do they reveal it's age, history?
It came with a large snowblower, which does me no good in Alabama, and what looks a 52" mower deck. Whoever had it took great care of it.
It runs, but won't stay running at low idle, have to keep it idled up, maybe just some minor carb work.
If you were going to sell this baby, what would ask for it including attachments.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Case 442 Tractor

MAN that thing looks SWEEETTT!!!!

I dont have my number chart with me, but Im guessing that is one of the first years of that style.If noone has jumped in with a year, I will check later. Looks to have the old style mower mounting. As for that deck. Its probably eather a 44", or a 48" deck.

Re: Case 442 Tractor

My records don't go back that far, but I believe it should be around a 1971 model year tractor.

OK, well I checked, and they dont list # breakdowns that far back. I narrowed it to '69,'70,or '71

Re: Case 442 Tractor

Your tractor is a 1969 model. The operator's seat should consist of a seat pad and a separate back pad and have the letters "PK" on the back of it.

While it is in good overall condition for the year, it has a few drawbacks for those who might consider buying it with a view to using it. First off, it does not have the optional hydraulic lift for the attachments. The hydraulic lift is one of the main features that attract people to these machines.

Secondly, this is a first generation 400 series that still uses the same cumbersome attachment system that was employed by the 100 series tractors that preceded it. Those attachments are getting more difficult to find because they are wearing out and not being rebuilt. If you had a 1971 442 instead, then mower decks from the later 400 series (except for the 60") would fit on because that's the year that Case went to the spring loaded pins on the front of the tractor frame. Oh, and your machine likely has a 50" deck on it because they didn't put much of a discharge chute on the old G and H decks. Turn it over and measure the true cutting width across the blades.

If the blower has no value to you, then it has no value to any other Alabama resident either. Most likely, Case garden tractors are a bit of an orphan in your state and this one probably got there in the back of a moving van when a "northerner" decided to have a climate change.

Value is a difficult thing to pin down. It's worth exactly what a buyer would be willing to pay for it and you would be willing to let it go for. I have seen similar aged units sell on e-Bay for $300.00 to $600.00 depending upon condition of the machine, where it is located, how close the Buyer is to the Seller, the time of year and so forth.

You have to keep in mind that these machines have the Case name on them but they have not been supported by Case since they sold the outdoor power equipment division in 1982. That means, an owner cannot walk into a Case/IH dealer and buy parts for it because most dealers don't even have the parts books for them any longer. For an end user, that's a major drawback.

You could take your chances and put the package on e-Bay with a opening bid of ten dollars to attract potential buyers and then let the free marketplace dictate what the value is on that day.

The idling issue is likely a carb problem due to stale gas. Go buy a can of Seafoam from a local auto parts store and follow the directions for use. There's a good chance that it will solve that issue.

Re: Case 442 Tractor

Up in my neck of the woods where the snowblower has some value, your tractor and attachments would probably sell for somthing close to $800 to$1000. Nice tractor!

If it's FREE, it's for ME!

ALWAYS remember to remove the spark plug wire from the plug before sticking your hand in the machine!!!! The fingers you save could be your own.

Re: Case 442 Tractor

wish i could find a 400 series tractor up here in even close to that shape for $300-$600 dollars.the old style wouldnt bother me at all but then i like the older vintage tractors.there are still alot of the 100 series out there so im sure with a little looking you could get parts or attatchments or with a little fabrication you could make attatchments from other brands/models work.i have a 195 style case,a very early model 220 like yours,(on ebay now) a neighbor has a 155 and a 130.there are a couple of other oldies around here too without me having to look hard to find them so they are still out there and being used.its just up to you if you want to put the time into the chasing of parts and attatchments of an older one or would rather have the conveniance of a newer model.

Re: Case 442 Tractor

Thanks guys. Great information, I really appreciate it. Caseguytoo, you are correct, it does have the seat pad and separate back pad with the letters PK on the back. The mower came from Oregon. I got it from the original owner's grandson. He took great care of her. She is sweet old machine and runs great. I bought her because son was letting her gather dust in his garage. At least I fire her up and ride the grandkids around the neighborhood. I could have used the snowblower back in '95, which was the last time I saw snow. I walk mow my grass for the exercise. Maybe I can find someone up north that can use her and take good care of her.

Hmmm - that would look good next to my 195 and other older models, email me and let me know what you want for it.

Re: Case 442 Tractor

do you still have the snow blower attachment for your CASE 442, if you do have it, do you want to sell it ?

Highly doubtful you'll get a response to your question as the original poster of this thread had exactly 2 posts since 2008 both in this thread.
