Sad day. Since I got myself a 4410, I found out real fast that all my other tractors just sat around. I picked up a 9N a few years ago, and sold that two weeks ago. Not that connected to that, so no big deal. The Case 245 I sold today, different story. Before the Case, everything was done by hand. Keeping up 10 acres was a challenge. Once I got the Case, it changed everything. I put 900 hours on my Case in 7 years. It changed the lay of my land. Cleared a lot of trees/brush. Did it all. Sad to see her go.

Sad time indeed. Just hop on the 4410 and it will help you forget all about the others.:usa

Your old Case will be somebody else's new friend, I hope?

Ummmmm. Your our old tractor was a CASE/IH 245, not a Case. That would be like calling a Lincoln Town Car a Ford.

The Case/IH 245 was the later version of the INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER 244 Built by Mitsubishi and sold between 1982 till 1984.

I can understand getting a larger tractor, not sure I would have traded the old C/IH 245 in.

Understood on the model end.

I've always been of the mindset that a tractor is meant to be ran. It went from running daily to sitting around for the past 3 months. I struggled with it, so much that my wife now really knows how nuts I am.:bigthumb: The guy that purchased it was super excited. Its his first tractor. That makes the it easier.

I went through the same thought process when I sold my '56 Ford. Loved the truck, but it just sat around. The gentleman that bought it did a super nice restoration on it, taking it from an average daily driver to really impressive, then used it to haul his restored Ford tractors to tractor shows. :good2:

Your much quicker on the trigger than am I. Ive been contemplating selling my compact tractor for 2 years now. It has been a great tool but now that all the real work is done it pretty much sits in the shed and barely gets 25 hrs a year on it,,,,, I think this year is the year to pass it on.
