    The prodigal tractor returns!

    The wife was browsing the classified ads yesterday and saw a 646 for sale, she called me over and said that looks like it was one of yours and sure enough It was one I had sold 2 yrs ago to a woman with a small organic farm and here it was up for sale. I always regretted selling that one as it was in good condition with a rebuilt 18hp Briggs in it. So bought it back sight unseen! Will pick it up this afternoon, fairly close by in Cawston BC (1.5 hrs round trip)
    Heres hoping it hasn't been abused too much!! 646g.jpg646f.jpg

    Paid $3000 for it, $500 less than what I had sold it for. (Pictures are from 2 yrs ago) I converted that one to 16" turf tires on the back with modified fenders, she still has the original lug tires and fenders

    Glad you got her back. You can't beat having a loader at the homestead.

    Got it back home, looks pretty good! A couple of minor problems, throttle cable is broken so was a little awkward loading it, battery is toast, but has a brand new starter? Maybe it got replaced instead of the battery but not complaining. Also got the original f and r tires and rims, fenders, manuals,decal kit and complete new brake kit which I sent to her but was never installed. So pretty happy! Apparently she cleared and tilled almost 2 acres with it and this year with the garden area established she took the tiller down to a 2 ' width to go between the rows, but of course the tractor is much wider than that so now she is useing a BCS walk behind tractor. so the Case was now too big for her purposes, right place at the right time!!!

    Yeah the wife is pretty supportive allright, although it certainly helps when she knows I have been making pretty decent money buying and selling these Case GT's and full size farm equip as well. But this one isn't going anywhere, going to go thru it and give it a decent paint job that it really deserves!

    When you get time can we get details about "I converted that one to 16" turf tires on the back with modified fenders"

    The pictures make me think those are 44x fenders on that 646. But did you have to modify the seat and gas tank mounts?

    Or did it just bolt up with little modification? Lots of pictures needed of course..😂

    Hello Scott: Yes they are 446 fenders on there, she wanted the big wheels so I had a couple spare sets of wheels and fenders. All I had to do was grind off the spot welds for the fender mount angle iron and with the 16 " wheels installed measured for 1" clearance to underside top of fenders and rewelded the mounts back. There is also roughly 1" of clearance between the tire sidewalls and the inner fender with the turf tires installed. I have a set of 16" ag tires which I am going to try next which should be a little narrower sidewall. Most of the bolts lined up but now I have it back I am going to spend a little more time to make it look like factory. Did not have to modify anything else than the fender mount, but the 2 rear fender bolt holes are out of line with approx 2 " of the mount sticking out over the seat frame so will trim the excess off and relocate these 2 holes

    When you install the ags if could you do a post if it wouldn't be any trouble (no pun LOL)? Many of us have wrestled with finding a suitable ag for the stock rims on the loaders. I would also be interested in whether there are any issues with operation of the machine due to the change. I am already dreaming of Titans,Carlisle Farm Specialist.....etc...... for my loader LOL.
