Hi all, new to John Deere ownership, tho I have operated various mowers and tractors in the past. I just bought a place with two acres and the wife and I decided to get a lawn tractor... I jumped the gun and bought a 79’ 216 (😍) with the deck not attached 😒 and found out it would be 1200$ to attach. Needless to say not good for the relationship. So I bought a 185 Hydro with a deck in great condition. It mows the grass. Lame. Trying to find a deck and parts for my newly beloved 216 is harder than pulling teeth!!! Looking forward to chatting and hopefully making connections on this forum. I’m in colchester Vermont.
