    No those piles look small for a truck with a plow with any significant accumulation. A truck would make a pile like that with 2-3" maybe?

    Trust me you would love case garden tractor.wesportwesportwesportwesport

    Do you want know how much cost for new of those they are nearby 8 thousands dollars but they change plan lot this years because it own by new company so they try change design but they still keep same design for nearby 30 years.


    if you want one just check on ebay or craiglist. For me I do want 444 with 26" tires but over 1,000 dollars.

    http://www.ingersoll-inc.com/ but not sure if they plan make 2000 series again. My case 222 is simple to 2000 series.


    look this one it is iron cast transmission where would you find new tractors with that no. http://www.ingersoll-inc.com/aboutus.htm

    Not cold I get heat from engine because it have fan mount front of engine so heat transfer though me but not very warm just more warm with that than john deer GT335 that don't have fan.


    I forgot to say If I need money or want another tractor? I wouldn't never sell or throw away that case 222. Like you want keep your favorite truck because it do good job.


    If I see anyone sell like that I buy it if they sell cheap with bad engine.

    Here is about the right size for a truck.
    It is 2 docks wide at the end tapering to one wide at the start.
    About 50 feet long.

    This was yesterday morning it is a bit bigger now but was to dark for a picture when I got done with clean up this morn.

    Wow that one I would not success push that without bend snowplow's bracket or me off my seat hit on steer.



    If I have job or money then I would buy snowplow for ford 601 then make snowplow up high than normal like 2.5 feet or high if we could make brackets.
