Hydrostatic and 6 Speed were different models with complete different transmissions.  You can't see both on one tractor.

 

The primary difference, is that they have different engines.  The 7117 has a KT17 Kohler twin, while the 7112 has a K301 single.  A hydrostatic tractor has the option of hydro lift, but the geared models do not.  I don't believe a 7117 could be had WITHOUT hydrostatic trans, unless specially ordered that way (know of one factory 7790 6-Speed...very rare).

Today I was called to check an LPG Onan circa 1974 . It did not do an automatic run as scheduled . On a manual start it ran erratically at less than normal . Pulled one plug wire - no difference . Put wire back , pulled other plug wire , engine died . Testing done while " running " . I recommended total generator / engine replacement considering importance of equipment .

Two cylinders that should run versus one that did . Snarky maybe . I don't recommend handling live plug wires - they can tingle .

so is an electric lift on a 7112 a good or bad thing ?

Not really nothing wrong with it. Easier than manual and don't have to worry about leaks like with a hydraulic lift. However, I believe hydraulic lift units can lift more.

If its the same as a 912 allis then yes manual lift would have been standard.

Yes, the 7112 would be standard with manual lift, and have electric lift as an option if a 6-speed.  If it's a hydro, then hydraulic lift was available.  Electric lift is a great thing.  I'd take hydro lift over electric lift, but they both beat the heck out of manual lift.  

 

The 7117's had hydraulic lift claimed to be 'standard' in the brochures, but I have seen them with manual lift.

The 7112 I have is only a 3 speed transmission with a high low range lever on the right side. It is also a manual lift but I think the electric lift was a option as my dash decal has a place that says electric lift. It has been a very good tractor since bought new on May 5th 1972. Mowed grass with the 42 inch deck with no problem all those summers. Pushed wet sticky snow and minimal depths of snow also.

1988 6517 Was a cheaper tractor back then than the sun star.

I am having issues with the belt and mower deck. Now I use it for all my small towing needs, lawn roller dethatched and cart.
