    My local dealer/part-time boss has a Case 446? tractor with a belly mower. Any thoughts? It seems in good shape. I am looking for something to tinker with, and as I am a Case man it seems like a cool find. I understand they were made by Ingersoll. Comments? Thankyou:)

    My dad has one, he has had it for around 33 years. We have rebuild and replaced the engine on it three times. The onan 16 hp engine is weak for a small tractor of that size. It always did a good job cutting the grass and he has used it to turn, disc and cultivate a 1 acre garden for those 33 years. It is slow to mow with but it is built like a small tank.

    Also you might check the engine. I'm no expert on this particular machine, but I'm pretty sure most people change out the original Onan engine for a stronger one - then run them for a billion years.
