This has probably been one of my most anticipated videos. I bought my old John Deere 210 in late summer 2012 and was having issues with the wiring harness and the seat safety switch, so the 39 mower deck on it would not run. The deck was in rough shape, so I painted it up and sold it. I had no plans to use the 210 for mowing, but I decided it would be a good backup mower in case my main mower broke down, so I set out to look for another mower deck for it. However, since I have a lot of grass to mow, I wanted a larger 46″ deck.
November of last year, I came across a used but good-condition model 47 (46″) deck which came off a 212. It had a new belt, rebuilt spindles, and all the mounting hardware, for $200. So I grabbed it, had it sandblasted, then waited a while until it warmed up outside. I sanded it down and smoothed it out, welded a couple cracks in the front, and then coated it with automobile primer and what seemed like a hundred coats of Rustoleum JD yellow paint. Also painted the pulleys, springs, the shield, and the discharge chute. Clear coated it and then waxed it, and replaced all the rusty bolts with new ones. Swapped the beat-up gauge wheels with the ones from the 111 deck. Installed a new blade-to-blade belt and a new PTO belt and had some trouble at first, but finally got the tension adjusted properly and had the belts working good. Sharpened the blades and mounted them up, and it was ready to mow the lawn as you see in this video. Enjoy!
