Hello everyone, new here to the forum !
My tractor I cut with and use is a 2012 x360 and I love it. I just recently picked up my first "vintage" Deere. It's a 212 and I bought it from the second owner who has used it to cut with for the last 17 years. 12hp Kohler was completely rebuilt 3 years ago and it runs like a swiss watch.
1. what is the correct position to run the variator (spelling) lever in? It is currently all the way forward. I just do not want to burn anything up.
2. It's an 82 (212), higher hours at 2200, however it was not only taken care of but fresh engine rebuild. Did I get a decent deal on it at $325 ?
3. What is the T-handle for that is located on the front of the tractor just below the grill?
4. Lastly, are parts pretty readily available for these models?
Thank you in advance everyone !
