The 444 model began in 1969 and continued until the end of the 1988 production year. During that period, many changes were made to it. Most of the tractors came with Kohler K engines that were fitted with points, condenser and coil ignition except for 1969 and 1970.

It may well be that in the latter couple of years, Ingersoll used Kohler M engines with electronic ignition. The serial number of the tractor will help determine which engine is in the tractor under discussion.

$1000.00 for a non-running tractor is a steep price UNLESS.....there are ample reasons to justify that number. Normally, I would not pay more than $300.00 for a non-runner with a deck but if it had a rear PTO kit, then that would increase the value in my eyes by $150.00. If it had a sleeve hitch, then it would be worth another $100.00. If it had a 3 point hitch instead, then I would pay another $300.00.

Tire chains, wheel weights, Flow Control Valve kit, a Utility Blade and a Snowcaster would all increase the value because all of these items could be sold individually later on to recover what was spent.

The problem with a non-running tractor is that you cannot run hear it run, see if there is smoke in the exhaust or listen for noises that should not be there. I think that the Seller has a lot of nerve asking that kind of money for a basic tractor with deck. If he feels that it is truly worth that much, then HE should spend whatever it takes to get it running. For all anyone knows, it has a broken rod and he's just looking for a sucker to pay his price.

Let's see the photos and all the info.
