I have a 74 112 with an electric lift. I just picked up a 31 tiller on a 214 last night. My other 3 tractors are 200 series with manual lifts. I am planning on using the 112 as my tiller and snowblowing tractor, since the attachments are heavy. Do I need to be concerned about taxing the electric lift with the tiller? Should I look for an electric lift helper spring or can it handle it ok? Thanks in advance!

Froze up blowers and tillers are probably the most common killers of the electric lift, unfortunately.
I knew they had a 'lift-assist' spring for the manual lift, didn't know about an electric assist. But I would recommend it.

My 37A snowblower killed the electric lift on my 212! I didn't have the lift assist spring on it, so I highly recommend you get it before taxing your 112 with the snowblower.

:ditto: what PA318Guy said get the lift assist spring for it as well. Here is what it looks like


And here is the part number for the kit AM34615.
Probably can't get it from a deere dealer anymore because the bracket is No longer avaliable But you can probably get through one of these two places.

Someone over on WFM has plans for making the bracket and I think I can do it with the help of a friend of mine, however I would need the spring. Does anyone know if it is still available from Deere?

The last time I checked you could still get the spring from Deere But one of those two links I posted should also have the spring:thThumbsU
