The Little Case Posted by Greg on 11/06/2011

I bought my Case 448 with the intention of using it to plow snow in winter and mow grass. What a great machine. Lots of Power, nimble in tight spaces, and its all hydraulic. Parts a readily available and relatively cheap. If you've never operated one I suggest you give one a try.

However, since I became the owner of this machine I've since replaced the engine with a B48G 19.9hp model engine from a Roper tractor as the the existing B48M died after a connecting rod let go. Next up for improvements/ repairs is to add a FEL and AG tires out back for more traction.
