I have JD 212 my grandfather owned. After he passed family abused and sold off attachments . I managed to rescue it from a leaky wood shed, it was in real bad shape. I now have it running top notch and have acquired the same but not orignal attachments that got sold off, with the exception of a 46 inch mower deck. I have bought the 38 inch but the wheel base is wider than the cut. I will need to at some point restore the whole thing but for now she is a mule a does not quit. I am happy to have her and will post pics soon. Oh and thanks for the manuals.
