I just got a 212, because it has this option.  I ran a 214 for years, but plowing at plow days with manual lift, even with spring assist, gets old fast. I do enjoy the gear drive for plow days but not manual lift.  For grins and giggles I searched most every major cities craigslist listing for other 200 series and while you can find many, none were hyd lift.  I only found 2 that had electric lift and one of those had major issues with it which = lots of money to fix.  Even the several 216's I found, did not have the hyd lift option.  Mike

Just a guess, but maybe 1 in 25? I stuck around at an auction on Labor Day to see a 214 with hyd lift and a tiller sell for $600. It was trashed and did not run.

Just shows what others will pay for a trashed tractor with options.
