Very impressive RF knowledge! Now, do you have any thoughts on what stocks to buy?


He should, he stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night when his wife kicked him out and wouldn't let him have his blue tarp blanket.

I do have one serious question; how do you lift the deck on that 110? Did they offer electric lift in '66?


1963 - 1965 110's only offered manual lift. In 1966, you could get the 110 with manual lift or hydraulic lift. 1966 was also the year that John Deere introduced the 112 with a 10 hp Tecumseh motor. The 112 was also offered with either manual lift or hydraulic lift. In 1967, all four variations, 110 manual, 110 hydraulic, 112 manual, and 112 hydraulic, were offered. The electric lift wasn't offered until 1972, and was available on both the 110's and the 112's.

People often tell me that John Deere didn't make 11 different round fenders in the early 60's, but here is why I disagree:

1.1963 = Model 110 with 7hp Kohler, 3 speed transmission, and manual lift
2.1964 = Model 110 with 8hp Kohler, 3 speed transmission, and manual lift
3.1965 = Model 110 with 8hp Kohler, 4 speed transmission, and manual lift
4.1966 = Model 110 with 8hp Kohler, 4 speed transmission, and manual lift
5.1966 = Model 110 with 8hp Kohler, 4 speed transmission, and hydraulic lift
6.1966 = Model 112 with 10hp Tecumseh, 4 speed transmission, and manual lift
7.1966 = Model 112 with 10hp Tecumseh, 4 speed transmission, and hydraulic lift
8.1967 = Model 110 with 8hp Kohler, 4 speed transmission, and manual lift
9.1967 = Model 110 with 8hp Kohler, 4 speed transmission, and hydraulic lift
10.1967 = Model 112 with 10hp Tecumseh, 4 speed transmission, and manual lift
11.1967 = Model 112 with 10hp Tecumseh, 4 speed transmission, and hydraulic lift

Since 1963 was the introductory year for the first John Deere garden tractor, John Deere only made 1000 units of the 1963 110. This also applies to the 1966 112. Since it was being introduced for the first time, John Deere only made 1000 units of the 1966 112. Every John Deere collector is highly seeking to own a 1963 110 at some time in their life. Yes they are rare, but to me, the 1966 112's are more rare than the 1963 110, since the 112's were offered with two lift options. I think it's harder to find both variations of these than the manual lift 1963 110's. I have been able to aquire all 11 round fender tractors, but believe me, it wasn't an easy task! Since being a member of ebay, I think I can honestly say that I have seen at least 20 1963 110's being sold throughout the years, but have only seen about 6 1966 112's sold. Everyone of the 112's were manual lift. I have never seen another 1966 112 with hydraulic lift on ebay, or even at shows. Hard to say how many John Deere made with the hydraulic lift option, but in my opinion, there weren't many!

Elfman, thanks for the RF tutorial. Very interesting information! However, my question remains. I don't see any manual or hydraulic lift lever on the "63" 110 that is the subject of this thread.Does anyone else see it? Maybe I'm just having a brain fart.

No, I don't think any remnant of it remains. Nothing here where the lift lever (or the hydraulic cylinder) would attach:
