I can't comment on that Ad, don't know too much about them. But we've got many members who do, and will chime in, in the future I'm guessing. Remember, this is summer, and a lot of coal burners are out swimming or surfing or something...
Also, you mentioned loving your CC, and I have to warn you, I'm "suppose" to be a JD enthusiast, cause I bought a 25 yr old 214 a couple years ago, in great condition. Lots of attachments, 14 HP cast iron Kohler engine, variator, ect ect. It's the nicest thing I've owned in a long time, condition wise, but seems to always need maintenance. Just changed a drive-belt and was cursing the design engineers for their moronic layout. ('Nother story) Maybe if it was designed 50 years ago or more, I might like it better.

People may chime in, but just remember.........this thread has the posts deleted every so often, and it's not searchable from the search bar.

There are better places on the forum to place and answer these questions.

you see you made the common mistake....... its not a cub cadet not at all. it's a small AG tractor, predates the cub cadet, and has a 4 cylinder liquid cooled engine. it weights about 1,400 dry about twice the weight of a cub cadet (no implements, weights or hydraulics). the way my tractor is setup she probably weights more like 2,000. my tractor was built in 1948, its a farmall cub. the interesting thing is when IH originally designed the cub cadet they took the transmission from the cub, removed the final drives (replaced with stub shafts on a cub cadet) but the transmission housing and internal gears are the same on a gear drive IH cub cadet. the did this so the cub cadet did not require new tooling and new design for the transmission. the farmall cub was produced from 1947-1979, my tractor was produced the 2nd year they made them.

the rear tires are probably about 4 feet tall. you actually have to climb up onto the machine.


as far as you jd 214 they were a good little garden tractor, they were not in the same class as my cub but would be in the same class as a cub cadet. they were a useful machine and the original design for that variator dated back to the round fender JD 110, 1963. its a peerless cast iron transmission not as heavy as a cub cadet from that area but they werent bad either. your 214 is a garden tractor NOT a lawn tractor (lawn tractor= junk). you can pull decent sized loads and it will hold up, you can blade snow, run a snowblower attachment, rotto tiller, single bottom plow, mow and im sure there's more then i can remember. how do i know this, i used to have a 1971 jd 112 square fender but sold it when i bought my cub. i like the 112, i used it many years but i have two acres and i am able to mow with a 60" mower with my cub reducing mowing time. that and its even more durable then the kohler, which is a good engine in its own right. C60's are damn near indestructible. full pressure lube with a cartridge oil filter, automotive style bearings , liquid cooled, ect ect.

Point taken Ad. You know your tractors. Now if only I could find a stove to sell, to bring this thread back on track.

I had the "hots" for this model a while back. But they're deceivingly small. I guess with the blower they put out some good heat.
