Well I am finally picking this tractor up on monday that I have been grueling this guy to sell me over a year. It has been sitting on the side of his garage for the past 2 years but under cover. It has the snowblower, rototiller, and 46 deck. All are in excellent working shape, even cosmetically. This is my first 200 series john deere that I have owned. I have had many 300 series and 400 series john deeres, but never a 200 series and really don't know much about them. This tractor does come with the cast iron wheel weights, tire chains, all the tires are in good shape (they all hold air). The tractor itself is in excellent shape cosmetically and I know with a tuneup it should be in good working order. Still unsure If i will sell this tractor might just be a fun summer project/toy. So anyways I have a few questions.
How good do these tillers and snowblowers work on these 216's?
What is the quality of the cut on these mower decks?
Any price if I am to sell this package, what would you price it at, I paid $450 for the entire mess of it?
Are these 16hp kohlers any good, I am familiar with the transaxles and I do like them?
