Re: First garden tractor a 216, wife approved

My first GT was a 214. Get spare belts. You have to loosen the rear pulley bolts to change the rear belt. It will drive you crazy otherwise. Mine used to foul the points a couple times per season. Itís a ***** to get that cover off to clean them. I found an electric upgrade to help the points life. Bought my 318 before upgrading but Iíll see if I can find the link. I loved that tractor but upgraded to hydraulics for snow removal.

Enjoy. Itís a way cooler tractor than the big box crap.
