This past fall I decided to sell my troy bilt riding mower and upgrade to a garden tractor. Honestly I was looking at the JD's but I really dig the retro look so when I stumbled upon a case 446 in my area at a decent price I decided to make the purchase. I have received a lot of great advice (and some parts) from folks on this forum and it is greatly appreciated.

I finally got a chance to use it this evening even though there really wasn't that much snow I had to try it out. Man what a machine! I anticipated better performance than the LT but this thing was a horse. I had wheel weights and that was it. It worked like a charm. Next on the list is fixing that pesky throttle creep. I needed a third hand but it was fun.

I know everyone likes action shots and unfortunately my wife is sick and there is no way I could get her outside so you will have to settle for some post action shots. I'm embarrassed to show the pics because of the EXTREMELY messy garage but enjoy

They are great tractors for there size. Isn't it funny how powerful they are compared to a new 24 hp "tractor" with cup holders. P.S. your 446 looks really good :fing32:


You call that garage messy , I better never post any of mine :biglaugh::biglaugh:

I can't make up my mind if I like the 446 or the 69' better. Both look great to me. You can see the floor in your shop so yours plenty clean.:thThumbsU

The throttle creep might be a simple fix, just check to make sure all of the clamps and connections on your throttle cable are good and tight. Nice machine!

YOU DID GOOD! You would have had to go way up in the JD line to match the capabilities of this tractor, I think. It looks new. The Camaro is nice, but I noticed also what looks like a Honda 70 Trail. I know it's not in a league with a car but it is a toy I want for riding around my few acres.:fing32:

Thanks again for the comments guys. I know, I need shelves :). The lumber you see is actually some quarter round that I have been trying to install for months and just not had time.

Kentucky Wildcat, it is actually a cheaper version of the honda (I forget the actual make). My dad retired a few years ago and and this was the first thing he purchased and then became bored with it after 2 years so I took it. I don't use it much other than to putt around the field or run around our neighborhood.
