Picked up this 216 today (Yesterday now). I will be using it for snowblowing.  Good things do come to those who wait!

I need to see if I can get my 216 running that I just got home from Will in Canada. I understand the waiting game, been looking for several years for one myself.

 

Very nice 216 you got thee, way to go!! :thumbs:

The reason it took so long is because most of the 216's were really beat up. The ones that were nice were way too much $$. I got this one reasonable because the deck rusted out so it was just the tractor. I had a deck and blower. Now I am set.

I bought mine off Will with a deck that is still in Canada and a front blade that I got with the tractor. I need to get it running and replace the drive belts. It's in decent shape, but I think it pushed a lot of snow because the front tiers are worn down like I have never seen before.

 

Finding one in that nice of shape is very hard to do, Congrats!!

Those front tires have years of life left in them. :rolling:  :rolling:

Hope that Deere has a helper spring for the manual lift. If not find one, the Deere snow blower is heavy. I mounted one on my 214, but it has a hydraulic lift.
