I bought my 1986 446 about 3 years ago. I gave $400 for it with a 48" deck. I have put about $400 in parts in it including tires and it has been a very solid performer.Like a lot of folks I think low range should be a little faster. Another thing to determine when considering a Case/Ingersoll is whether or not it has a built-in or add on holding valve. Tom can better explain how to determine this but I believe anything with Ingersoll on it will have the holding feature built in to the travel control valve. I hear that driving downhill without a holding valve can become exciting if a certain technique is not followed. I'm not monogamous when it comes to GT brands. A couple of months ago I was shopping for a Cub diesel when I came across a JD 455 diesel. I gave $1500 for it. Deals are out there. You have to be diligent in searching CL and educate yourself on the various models you may be interested in. Be prepared to travel with cash in hand. I was also looking for a Ingersoll 4118D but they are kinda scarce. They have a 18hp 3 cylinder Perkins diesel in them. This is a good time of year to get a bargain on a garden tractor!
