    Nice addition. They are plentiful but I have to admit never thought I’d own a 200 series because of that but the 210 plows snow surprisingly well.
    Hope it works out well for you Greg .

    People always get creative with adding mower deck gauge wheels lol. Looks to be in over all good shape.

    That bracket set up had to add 20 pounds to the deck!!!
    Gonna go thru all that put an adjustable pivoting wheel set up on it. Seems like a lot of extra work for minimal gain. To each his own that’s what makes the world go round and gives us ideas of things to try.

    Agreed, sorry I was just conversing on the amount of work who ever had it put into adding the wheels on to it.
    If I was selling it I wouldn’t fix that either.
