Tom, A little correction if I can. If the rubber tire stays the same, changing from a 12" dia. wheel to a 16" dia. wheel only gives 2" more ground clearance. The wheel is 4" bigger in dia. but the radius changes from 6" to 8", or a 2" change.

Bryce, What you say does sound logical from a pure mathematics standpoint. However, there is more at play here than just the rim diameter. There is also the height of the sidewall.

If precision is required. LOL......then I will quote the Op Manual which states "Minimum Ground Clearance at Gear Case...7 1/8 " for 220, 222, 224 and 11" for 444.

That is a 3 7/8" difference

In order to level the tractor out, a different front axle and spindles were used which increased the ground clearance at that end. The trans-axle housing is the item that hangs the lowest which is why the ground clearance is measured at that spot.

Thanks for posting.

All Case garden tractors use eight inch rims on front. The 200 Series uses twelve inch on the rear and the 400 models use sixteen inch.

They are all hydraulic drive, not hydrostatic.

Of course there are problems. The last year a 222 was built was in 1988. Therefore, it is possible for a 222 to have anywhere from 25 to 45 years of wear and tear on it. You can expect to find problems on any tractor that old but none of them are unsolvable. The most important issue is the condition of the engine but even a worn out Kohler can be rebuilt properly by you for under 300 dollars most of the time. Prices charge by machine shops do vary.

Kohler parts are readily available on e-Bay or from other sources.

What are you wanting this tractor to do for you around the homestead?

With the 12" tires I guess it would be a lawn mower. If it had been 16" the I would put it to work with the Power Kings I'll probably fix it up and take it to nearby shows also.

All Case 400 and 200 Series are true garden tractors in every sense of the phrase.

Either one can be fitted with either a sleeve hitch or a three point hitch now that the newer HH-34 hitch became available in 1988. Prior to that, the 3 pt was only available for the 400 Series.

Either Series is capable of powering hydraulic vacuums, chipper/shredders, bush hog style field mowers, log splitters, rototillers and other attachments offered by Case and Ingersoll over the years.

Many owners prefer the Lo Pro 200's for cutting their grass and have no complaints about them when pushing or blowing snow either. Granted, the extra 4 inches of ground clearance provided by the 400 Series can come in handy but that is essentially the difference between these two garden tractors.

You will often find both Series at local ploughing matches with 10 or 12 inch bottom ploughs on the back. Give the 200 a try in your garden but set it up properly first. Tire chains or Ags are needed along with proper weighting.

Don't tell my wife, but I don't really need this. I have 4 Power kings a John Deere 112 and a Montgomery Ward Squire and all kinds of attachments. The thing is, I don't have a Case

Well Dave, All I can say is that continued exposure to a Case can often cause the sale of other brands in order to make room for more Case tractors. This phenomenon has been reported over and over again on various forums dedicated to the breed.
