Last year my wife and I built a new house on a nice 1/2 acre lot. We had been mowing it with a 22 inch walk behind mower and it was getting a bit taxing in the SC humidity. Also the boss err wife is likes to garden so our new to us 216 will be used to both mow and do garden chores like soil prep hauling and other tasks. She has already taken a liking to it despite it being the wrong color. She would love a farmall cub but our property is just too small for one now.
