Greetings. Been lurking for quite some time, figured it was time to join the ranks.
Needed a reliable machine to move snow on my new driveway so I picked up a 216 with plow, tiller and rotten mower from one guy, He threw in a MTD walk behind with a broken axle too. 120 miles later picked up a snowblower, same day. A little fixing and it preformed adequately through the winter. Had to pick up weights and chains which came with another blower, sold the blower and got my price on the weights and chains down to 50 bucks. Picked up a good deck in early spring. Then came across a guy getting rid of his projects. 214 blown motor, 2x212 (one he said was running, the other motor was out) and a 210. None were anywhere near operating condition but the 212 had the hydraulic lift system. So I bought the lot. There's a guy about an hour north of me that may purchase the remains after I am done upgrading mine.
Anyhow, I've got a solid running machine, snowblower and deck are redone and like new, tiller and plow will get the same treatment. Oh, and a large mower deck I got with the purchase of four machines.
Question regarding asking a question. Is it better to revive an old thread or start a new one?
Thank for stopping by.
