This site is dedicated to keeping Colt, Case and Ingersoll garden tractors, yard tractors, and lawn tractors running and serving the needs of their owners. We also assist those in the collector hobby who work diligently to restore these tractors in order to preserve the past and remind others of an era in American manufacturing history that appears to be slipping away.
It began with a unique idea and two brothers with a passion to build garden tractors. Powered by a patented hydraulic drive system, the first Colt garden tractor rolled off the assembly line in 1963. The J. I. Case Company took notice and acquired Colt in late 1964. The rest, as they say, is History.
If you like history and Case Tractors we encourge you to take a few minutes and read the history surrounding J. I. Case Plow Works and Case, Colt and Ingersoll compact tractors. We think you'll find it very worthwhile.
Under the venerable "CASE" brand, the lineup expanded to include a full range of rugged compact tractors, loaders, backhoes, attachments, and implements. Today, production of these versatile machines continues under the "Ingersoll" brand name.
The first Colt will soon reach its milestone 50th birthday and qualify for "Antique" status. Today, the latest models with the same patented hydraulic drive system roll off the assembly line at the Ingersoll factory. From first generation to the latest models, the Colt-Case-Ingersoll legacy stands apart.
