For Sale: John Deere 214 garden tractor. Low hours on the engine and the transmission has just been gone through. 47" deck and runs as it should. $775.00
I do not text so call 563-608-2908.
This is another early machine if the side panels are correct. The serial tag leads me to believe it is early.

Nice, used to want one in 200 series. How long they make that series? Seems they don't have following of the 112's and others, and are better machine in some ways, but not ALL that much different really. Have seen 210, 212, 214. Is there a 216 for bigger? I'm thinking the 316 might be the 16hp offer?? Anyway, just always seemed the 200's never got the appeal of the others.

Stared building in 1975 and ended in 1987. The 214 was the largest HP 200 series JD offered until the release of the 216 in 1979.

The 200 series followed the formula developed in the RFs then continued in the flat fendered 100 series. The late 100 series has more in common with the 200 series than the early 100 series. One of the things to watch for on the late 100 series is the 200 style pto control mounted on the dash. The 200 series was made from '75 until the mid 80's. The tractors are spec'd as follows:

200/208 - 8 HP

210 - 10 HP

212 - 12 HP

214 - 14 HP

216 - 16 HP

The attachments used on the flat-fender 100 series worked on the 200 series machines. As for appeal of the 200 v/s 300 series - I think it depends on the part of the country. There are a mess of the 200 series machines here in the midwest. The peerless 2300 and variator made for a durable and practical tractor.
