Do you have a thread on how you did that?

How big is the addition going to be?

No, I don't have a thread on the lift. The addition is going to be 12x30. Hopefully I will be able to use my shop when I get it done. I am currently storing 11 gt's plus all of my tools, wood stove, beer fridge, you know, the important things. Cat, I will try to send you a pic of what I used for the hydraulic lift on my 212.

This is the pump i used, it came off of a in/out board boat engine. I ran hydraulic lines to a cylinder that I mounted under the tractor and hooked it up to the factory rock shaft and since the pump is under the hood next to the battery it is not seen from the outside. The only thing you notice is the momentary toggle switch on the dash. I also removed the rod that goes through the lift handle so It would not latch in the different height settings.

This is another pump i have, it needs the motor rebuilt but it was not installed on a tractor yet so it is easier to see. The only difference between the two is the one that is on my 212 has a small resivore that I built added for extra capacity.

I got a little work done today, had the 212 out doing some dirt work to level up the spot where the addition will be. Here's a pic.IMG_20140809_154123.jpg

Where'd you get the grille emblem on the 212? It's a big one!
