    Well I sold two Green ones and got another Green and an ahhhh ummm annn Orange one.....
    Yes I bought a Case 224 from a mutual friend of Kyle 2 and I. Wanted it for awhile. Hydro, with snow caster, needed some love but it’ll be the primary care taker this Winter. I also picked up a JD 140 H1 from Pop but have not done anything to that yet .Out of space again. Wanted to get the Case ready.
    Im really lovin this thing and cannot wait to see it work.
    So far it’s gotten a good bath, a little polish, new fluids
    all the way around, new tires, new seat , painted rims,
    weight bracket and rear light. Came with the chains.
    It’s only issue is the muffler still thinking about that.

    Hello again old friend ! It don't matter about the color or brand, and you can't have too many of them either ! J.

    Good to have you back here my friend.........
    There is also now a yellow and white one in the collection that I cherish highly as it was a gift from an elderly neighbor that I help out cutting grass and etc for.
    Thinking maybe I've become an enthusiast and enjoying the other brands more and more not just the green that I still enjoy very much.
    Had the Case at our local show in October and a lot of people stopped to look at it...........
    Just do not see many around our neighborhood.
    Glad to see your posting again.
    Any new projects?

    Thanks pal ! Lots of projects in stasis waiting for motivation to apply. Cars, trucks, big tractors and boats have claimed my attention for a good while, but I'm going to show some love and attention to the neglected little ones soon. I don't think I related to this forum some new additions to the Deere fold which are a 64 3 lug 110, another 67 Indian Head powered 112, a Red and White 112, another 214, a 216, and 95% of a 120. They haven't received any attention since they arrived, but faint images of them are beginning to form in the cloudy crystal ball. Oh, I picked up a Generator attachment for 120/318 tractors, but it sleeps also. I will get some pics of them if anyone craves a view. I'm still searching for the elusive 140. Your Case is a very intriguing machine. I like how the engine is mounted with the shaft towards the rear like I've always thought should be the standard, and the apparent Hydraulic Motor that drives the transaxle. Is it a Genuine J.I. Case (original company) or a Tenneco/Case ? Regardless, it is a very nice looking machine and a awesome find ! I'll be popping in and out of here checking in on everything going on. BTW I miss concocting poems about ol' Troy Boy !!. Catch ya later rotovator ! J.

    My memory works about like something else does these days.....for close to three hours now I've been going back thru old posts of mine all the way back to my introduction. I had posted about the 64, the Red Custom Color, (it's a 110 tho) and all the others plus the Generator. It was fun re-reading them and the replies. My last posts were in early 2018, so it hasn't been as long as I thought. One thing I haven't related is the destruction of what I named Yard Dawg. It WAS a 112 FF with a front bumper, horn, a four legged Deere headlight panel, original taillights, and added auxiliary lights on bumper. I bought a new JD 47 gallon sprayer for weed and grass control around the yard and farm that I pulled with it. I had sent two of my sons to bring the tractor and sprayer from the farm to my car shop. The spray tank was full of Roundup and 2-4-D mixture ready to apply around shop buildings. So they loaded the tractor with sprayer on trailer, left farm and pulled on road. Being young, trifling, and too lazy to strap and secure the tractor, coupled with leadfoot acceleration and 47 gallons of weight in sprayer, the tractor/sprayer performed and displayed several acts of the unerring properties of the Laws of Physics. The end result being the total destruction of the sprayer, including rupturing of the tank, geometry of the spray booms altered, the sprayer chassis drastically reshaped, the tractor hood forever altered and decorated with various asphalt induced designs with added ventilation ports, the auxiliary front bumper lights suffering contortions not intended by their designers rendering them eternally dark and useless, and best of all, the absolutely Perfect "Keebler Grade" 4 Legged Deere Headlight Panel transformed into a Very Handicapped 2 Legged Totally Blind Deere Specimen. Although this event was unnecessary, avoidable, and conceived by stupidity with added laziness, it could have been extremely worse and costly. Thankfully no one was hurt or any additional properties other than my own damaged or destroyed. Life goes on. For what it's worth.....J

    Wow I don’t think I would have taken that so well.
    We haven’t seen Troy here . Last he and I spoke said he was getting out of the hobby. So sad
    Yes I’d like a few pics of the new family members when you have a few extra moments to capture them sleeping.
    Wish I had that much room!!!!!

    It took a lot of restraint to remain calm. I was mostly thankful that another vehicle (s) wasn't involved given the amount of traffic on the road. It's a shame that Troy is gone. So much knowledge had he. Did he liquidate his collection ? I will get you some current pics of everything in present conditions soon. J.

    That's a good looking case. Much different looking from when saw and worked on it last. All for the good.

    Nice thanks for sharing, that’s a lot of nice storage space!!
    The 112 looks in pretty good shape better than mine when I brought her home. The red patio pretty good also
    but my eyes also went to the MF’s tucked in there also.
    Wishing you lived closer!!!!! I’d be over.
