Some of you guys might remember that I was looking for a cheap 200 series Deere to play with. I've hit all my local dealers boneyards, scanned Ebay, local newspapers, auctions, etc and all I could really find were machine that were gonna require a LOT of my time and money. I'd kinda given up on it and while driving home from work on Friday, just before July 4th, I passed a green tractor for sale. I turned around to check it out and it was a Deere 210 with a #50 cart attached to the back. The fella told me a price and I went on my way home to discuss it with my loving wife. She said yes and due to scheduling problems during the weekend, I didn't get back to the guy until Sunday. He still had it, so I bought it. The tractor runs great, the hood is completely intact with no damage that is so common on these fiberglass hoods. The only thing that really needs to be fixed is a new seat cver. Even the lights work! After checking the oil, I cut my lawn with it on Sunday afternoon. After running nothing but hydrostatic tractors for the last 25 years, it took me a while to get used to shifting gears again, but I really like it. I couldn't believe how fast 4th gear is with the variator all the way forward, it FLIES! And in creeper gear, it has enough power to pull anything that won't cause the rear wheels to spin.

I tain't got no new fangled digital camera thingy. You'll have to forgive me but I'm barely in the 21st century.

Joe...

Glad to hear of your good fortune.
Lucky thing it was 4th of July weekend, chances are most folks were
running around to (or from) someone’s house for the weekend,
otherwise it might have been gone by Sunday.

Don’t go too long before you change that oil.

I kinda like those old gear drive Deeres. After a few hours, you will be able to change gears almost as quick as a Hydro. Real easy to shift.
