Just bought myself & the wife a little Case tractor, and looking for some info on it. Figured you guys could help us. The tractor is 'new' to us. On the side, it says Case 430 (btw, it is gas, not diesel). But on the silver plate on the dash, it is stamped, "model 440L". And the serial # is 6168620. It has a 3 pt hitch on it, but we think that someone put that on later...it (the hitch) was originally painted blue, but now is painted orange. Does anyone know if this tractor model ever did originally have 3 pt. hydraulics on it? Any information that you guys could give us regarding this little tractor would be greatly appreciated. Will try posting a photo of it soon.
