One year my wheat drill left a mile or two of unplanted furrow near the road where everyone could see my boo boo. I'll fix that! 446 to the rescue with a little rigging.

My first attempt gathered trash on the planter's tip so I robbed part of a plow coulter and rigged it to the front. Now it works.

With a bucket of seed between my legs and a tin can to feed the little planter box, the boo boo got corrected. NOW YOU HAVE SEEN EVERYTHING!

I don't know the year. I bought it used from a guy that was hard up for some money. He shot me a price that was about half price of what they were bring at auctions. Therefore, I latched onto the 446 even thought the 224 was still running strong.

The 446 has some beef and the little planter was a hand push model for garden work. The rolling cutter ran shallow so the side draft was very manageable.

I had put an offset drawbar on the rear with the hitch pin directly behind the right side tire so I guess it was trained to handle side draft LOL .

For several years I mowed with the 446 and pulled an offset mower behind and to the right.

My offset tow-behind mower was my trusty Case 224? with a 14 horse Kohler. I mowed about 2 acres with the 224 for about 15 years before I got the 446.

Always wanted a 446 but the 224 would not lay down and die. Got a bargin on the 446 so now I had two working Case lawn mowers and one operator. Didn't take too much smarts to ponder if I could rig the 224 for towing behind the 446.

Bottom line, I took the steerable axle off the 224 and made an axle having two caster wheel. Added a tongue on the 224 that would hydraulically swing plus and minus 45 degrees. Might note that the 446 has a pair of hyd hoses hanging from the back and used to swing the tongue.

The swinging tongue allowed the rear mower to either trail directly behind the 446 for going thru narrow areas or swing to the right side and mow a full swath. Clear as mud LOL

It was back in the 90 when I had the two hooked together. Never thought about taking any pictures. The reason that I could not remember the model number of the smaller one is I put the steerable front axle back on it and gave it to my son in law about a dozen years ago. He used it 2 or 3 years and then traded it off. The engine was finally shot.

I still have the 446 in good condition. Its parked in the barn and hasn't been started for probably 4 years. The pics I posted were about 5 years old.

When I was mowing about 2 acres with the pair, I was also mowing about 5 acres with a bush hog type mower. For the past several year, my antique tractors pull a 11 ft batwing turf mower to do all 7 acres.

Both the 224 and the 446 were great on steep side slopes such as road ditches. I mow about 3/8 miles of my country road on both sides of the road.

The fenders were strong enough and high enough that I could set on the up side fender and mow any bank that the front wheels could steer on. Always unhooked the rear mower for doing steep banks.

That is really neat. They say "necessity is the mother of invention" Ron,not bad for a former CAT engineer! LOL You will have to post that over on tractor talk. Some of the guys over there will be wanting you to build them similar units.
