    212 "Vintage"?

    My 1st Deere, 212.
    Don't know the year. ID M00212X361907. This Deere is considered vintage?

    The grandsons and I are busy studying. The poor Deere lived outdoors, poorly tarped. Disgraceful!

    Seems some maintenance and learning is going to keep the boys 'n I busy.

    The 12hp Kohler was always my favorite and this one runs better daily thanks to Seafoam.
    On to gear lube, belts, light bulbs, paint. Any close green & yellow matches, off the shelf rattle cans; i.e.: Rustoleum?

    Working on the Deere, going to need another can of Never-Seez!

    Yes, the older 200 series made from 1975 through 1987 model year are considered vintage. They were derivatives of the first John Deere L&G model, the round fender 110 that came out in 1963. The 200 series took the square fender 110 and 112, added side panels, improved engine noise, added more hp (on some models), and updated the design. As you know, the square fender 110 and 112 was a direct replacements for the round fender 110 and 112. The 212 in your post is a 1986, next to the last year made. I had a few 200 series, including a 208 (I wish I had that one back), a couple of 210s and 214s.
