I think I know the answer to this, but can't find it anywhere. So coming to you experts out there for help....

What is the difference between the older 110 and 112 tractors - specifically the square fender models?

I know the 12's have a bigger engine (10hp? vs 7 or 8), and a wider deck (42? vs 38). The later (8hp) 110s have the same 4 speed gearbox/transaxle as the 112. According to Tractordata (love that site!!!), the wheelbase, height and overall length is the same. The 112 weighs about 50 lbs more and is wider (Would the bigger engine and wider deck account for the weight/width differences?)

Also, in 71/2 the 110 went to a stronger frame (according to Weekendfredom site). Not sure which "generation" Tractordata is using for weight - the frame upgrade could account for the weight difference as well. Not sure if the 112 had frame changes during it's lifespan...

Is the 112 basically a 110 frame with bigger engine and deck?

like you said 112 is basically the same as the 110
the 110's had a 8 hp up to 74 but in 72 to 74 you could get a 10 hp
the 112's had a 10 up up to 71 and in 72 to 74 they got the 12hp

the parts can be used on both the 110 and 112. same parts from the 200 series wii fix on the 110 and 112.
if integral attachment fits on a 110, it well fit on the 112 and the 200 series

i have a helper spring from the 110 that I have on my 212.
Many siad that it well not work. the trick is you need the rock shaft list from a 110 or 112
you the lift with the long arm to connect the helper spring to the 200 series has a short arm see attaments

with the 212 lift it does not have the leverage like the 100 lift

The 110/112 Fender deck Models are the exact same Tractor as You stated Yourself The Only difference Is the HP Of the engine and Depending On year the 112 will Have a Tecumseh engine as well Besides a Kohler. The stronger Frame would Be the Square Fender Or Fender deck Models
The 110/112 Round fender Models were also Built On the Same Basic Frame & again there only difference was engine and the 112Round fenders Just Had Tecumseh engines Only The Mowing decks for the 110/112 Square/ Fender decks were Model 39 which had a 38inch Cut and the Model 47 which Had a 46inch Cut and Later On when Deere Came Out with a 38inch deck for the 200 series Made 1975 to 1987. That 38inch deck would Fit on the 110/112 Fender deck/Square Fender Models and You can find Mountains Of Incorrect Date On Tractordata
After Serial Number 250001 The changed the Frame for 112 Square fenders and On the 110 They changed it to the same frame as the 112 after serial Number 285001 and Used 10HP Kohler’s In the 110 only Before that Serial Number Change they Had Been Using either 8 or 10HP Kohler’s :thumbs:

Thanks guys! I THOUGHT that was the case, but couldn't actually find it written down anywhere!

I bought a square fender 110 to keep my round fender 110 company - will include some pictures when I go pick it up... Found some neat mods that somebody had done to a 112 that I want to add to this down the line to the square fender - but wanted to ensure I was doing an apples to apples comparison.

It's a 72 with the 8 hp kohler. EVENTUALLY would like to put a 10 hp aircooled yanmar diesel clone in it. That was part of the issue. I found a neat conversion on a 112 that I would like to build on.

But initially gonna just go through it with the existing engine and get everything up to snuff first.

I got real excited at first when I saw the linimar/Kubota as a replacement for this tractor - then I found out it is a GAS engine.... Was thinking it would be a diesel. Should have known for that price though....

I considered building a puller engine to put in it (Some great tips and info at Miller's web site). But I really want a diesel GT. My 2320 has got me spoiled on diesel engines...

All 110s and 112s had the same transmission, the 4 speed Peerless transmission, except for the '63 and '64 110s, which had a 3 speed transmission. And the decks were the 39 deck and the 47 decks - the earlier round fender 110s had the 38 deck. You can get replacement 38 decks for the series, but they came out with the 39 and 47 decks.
