We have a 200 and i was thinking about setting it up to plow.   But how many where actually made cause i was thinking of putting a 18hp vanguard in it but didnt want to chop it up.  So does anybody know the production number i know they only made them 2 years 75 and 76 but cant find how many were made

The 200 was only built in 1975 and was dropped because the market didn't want a 8HP GT.  I can't find the exact number built, but JD only built a total  of 25,000 GT's between all 4 200 series models offered. I wouldn't cut it up if it were mine.

I bet one CL ad and three days time could find you trading that 200 for a 212. You could try that, try to trade it for one that isn't rare.

From WFM about the 200 series...

 

 

With the 1975 model year, the new 200 series tractors were introduced. While this meant the introduction of a brand new line of lawn tractors, it also meant the demise of the 110 and 112 workhorses. The following 110/112 design features were retained:

  • The four speed 2300 series Peerless transmission with cast housing and full compliment of bearings.
  • -The two V-belt Variator Drive.
  • -Mechanical clutch PTO same as the 110/112 series.
  • -Front and rear attachment point remained unchanged from 110/112 series.
  • -Continuation of operator comforts such as neutral starting system and fully padded, highback seat and an optional "float-ride" type seat base.

Incorporated in this new model design were the following improvements:

  • A choice of engine options: 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16 horsepower Kohler engines.
  • Rubber Iso-mounted engine.
  • Fully shrouded engine with shrouded, low tone muffler system
  • New style hood and grill with back-sloped brow to reflect styling on full size Ag tractors.

 

Five horsepower sized models were offered during the thirteen years the 200 series was marketed. In 1975 the 200, (8 hp), 210 (10 hp), 212 (12 hp), 214 (14 hp) were offered. The 200 was dropped from the line in the 1976 model year due to lack of consumer demand. The 210, 212, 214 were built until the completion of the 1987 model year. in model year 1979 the model 216 (16 hp) was added to the 200 series and was offered until the competition of the 1987 model year.

 

 

 

I did not see any numbers on WFM either.  There was also a 208 that was the same as the 200.  Neither tractor had a varistor.  I would love to have a 200/208 parked along my 120 and a 312.  :smilewink:

Brian and Kenny,

 

I know the statistics say that the 200 was built only in 1975, but I recently sold one to fellow member truck21, and if you search the serial number on this tractor, (C200E055426) you will find that number is over and above the ending serial number of the 1975's. This tractor was indeed a 1976 model. Even more rare? I don't know. I've asked guys on another website about it, and received nothing but argument. Just putting that out there.

 

As for the tractor itself, I wouldn't cut it up if it were mine. I'd leave it as original as possible. Just me two cents worth.
