I had the day off yesterday and made my way to my local small engine shop. Cool place. Old in age and in school. You know, with the oily dust coating the wood walls and ceiling. The owner's busy and I look in the lot and I see this Case 220. Looks clean and original. Always admired Case. Had a '57 FEL 320 Industrial, but never a GT. The owner's brother walks over and tells me the background. Thinks it's a '77, sold in '79. One owner and it's been serviced at this shop since new. K241 Kohler. 800 hours. I've got two acres to mow and have a large Gravely and Kubota for the bulk of the mowing. But there is a fair space inside fence that I been using a 2000 or so Craftsman to do. It's getting tired.......and loose. So I asked if it was for sale, thinking he'd say no. But it was. And after it fired right over and purred like a kitty, I put it through the paces and purchased it. It's got a couple issues. One deck wheel is shot. Hole in the deck needs welding. Front skins are low on tread. But overall, very happy.
