Mike, don't see anything special about this one other than its one of the first Case units, IE- 14 HP Koehler. Its the unit they (Ingersoll now) build with the backhoe/loader combination. Can also get them with just the loader. Been a good unit for its size.

well, the more i look @ it the more i understand.

my initial reaction to this thing was "theres no way Case would make something this bulky yet flimsy" its got (from what i can see) a pressed steel frame and theres no way a loader attachment let alone a backhoe could ever carry a significant load w/o twisting and bending itself into oblivion. granted, the loader is designed not to exceed the capacity of the unit its attached to but the loader is built heavier than the tractor. i wonder what it can hold? by appearances i wonder if the weight of the loader itself is too much for the frame!

but it is the predecessor to the modern day estate/utility tractor. and even though it only has a 14 hp Kohler, its all hydraulic, even the transmission. but, man! the pump on that tractor must be some size too!

You'd be amazed how durable these little units were. Don't be fooled by the looks of that frame, it is one strong frame. Lift capacity is about 750 lbs which isn't to bad for a garden tractor. Only things I didn't like about them was that you selected the direction with the travel lever and then pushed a pedal down on the right footplate to control your travel speed. The hydraulics were basically the same as the garden tractor with 2350 psi system pressure and 11 gpm pump. Later versions like the 648 had power steering. The 646 had the industrial version of the onan engine which was the cck. Thes also had only 15 inch wheels on the back instead of the usual 16 bad that resulted in more pushing power.
