The hydraulic lifts, as well as the electric lifts, were a dealer installed option. They did not come out of the factory that way, but the dealer could install a kit. It included a new dash tower (pedestal), pump, belt, brackets, etc. to convert them. A hydraulic lift is a nice upgrade to the 200 series - if the tractor is in good condition, I would grab it .

BTW, the kit was BM16053. I can add the 200 series parts catalog to the Manual section here that would have that kit in it.

I added the 200 series parts catalog to the Manual section under John Deere. It's a word search-able pdf file - so just do a search for "hydraulic" and you will find the kit.
