Deere Lovers Hate It

Postby twotone » Thu Mar 15, 2012 2:44 pm

It's been so nice these past few days, I had to get my lawn mowing stuff ready. I shouldn't laugh, that's my 214 being towed. I have 3 Deere's, so I like them all the same, I just don't mow with the IH's, keeps them cleaner.

Don't worry about it. When the John Deere guys look at that picture, they see the 214 pushing the A! Image

No pics, but I towed a big John Deere through about half pf the Bonne Terre Christmas parade 3 years ago when he ran out of gas. Don't remember the model, but it was between size of the A and B but later model number series

My folks had a 214--still do but it's permanently out of commission---I grew to hate that @!#@$# thing. It had some sort of electrical gremlin, you would just be riding along and it would shut down, like you turned the ignition off. After dozens of trips to the dealer, we ran a straight wire and toggle switch to the coil. It did a good job of mowing when it ran but we struggled with it for close to 20 years....

Why didn't I think? I finally got rid of the JDB that's been in my shop for nearly a year. Towed it to the dock with an H. Forgot to take a picture.
