Differances on the B-110/112 to 210/212??

Recommended Posts

Is there any differance between these models? I look around and see pics of 110/112 and info but not much on the 210/212. Is one bigger than the other or did they just change numbers for different years? Ya know same tractors just change the decals for a new year/model. James K.

I had both a B110 and a B210. Biggest difference was the 210 was a 3 speed,with variable drive,while the 110 was a straight 3 speed,although this one also had a hi-lo trans.Otherwise,I didn't see much difference.

The B-112 has a longer wheel base than the B-110 due to the shuttle shift and hydrostatic transmission available in them. The biggest difference between the B-100 series and B-200 series is the tin work on the hood and the B-200 series had an improved center pto.

Hello, The hoods are different between the 100 series has a riser in the hood that is hinged, so it gives you access to the battery and gas tank. The steering wheel on the 100 series has a black plastic riser under it so steering wheel will clear the riser on the hood. There were some other differences between them too. I just don't know if the differences were betwwen the 100 and 200 series or between a certain model year. Some had a recessed key switch for starting engine for starting engine & some had a push button starter for starting engine.

James, The B-210 is a long wheelbase tractor also. It will accept a 48" deck. With a larger diameter steering wheel and narrow front tires it is a nice steering tractor.Our B-210 is the favorite mowing outfit in our "fleet". Jim

The B-112 and the B-212 are basically the same tractor. The B-212 has, as Maynard said, an improved center PTO. The B-210 is the same as the B-212, but with narrower front tires and a 10 horse engine, rather than a 12 horse. The B-1XX and the B-2XX hoods were interchangeable, but the B-1XX hoods had a riser towards the rear which opened to access the battery and fuel tank. The steering wheels of the B-1XX tractors had a deep dish with chrome hub and spokes. The B-2XX tractors had a shallow dish steering wheel. Black plastic with plastic spokes and a clear hub cap. They also had a larger diameter than the B-1XX tractors. The B-110 is kind of a mule. It shares the main frame and tinwork of the B112, B-210, and B-212, but the rest of the tractor is the same as the earlier model B-series. The B-112, B-210, and B-212 were three speed tractors with a variable drive system. The frames plates (between the BGB and the transaxle) were 4" longer on these tractors than on the B-110, which was a straight 3 speed tractor like it's predecessors. There were a few differences in the early and late B-110's and B-112's. The early models had a flush mounted ignition switch in the lower dash, and a push button starter on the upper dash, just below the steering column. All used the same seat pan, but early B-110's and B-112's had a unique hinge system for the seat pan. The later B-112's went to the newer hinge system like the B-210 and B-212. I'm not sure about the B-110, but I believe that it retained the unique seat pan hinge throughout it's run. Hope someone corrects me if I'm wrong on that point. One thing I am not too sure about, is the neutral safety switch. I know that the early B-1XX series did not have them, and that the late B-2XX series did have them. I don't know if that was added during the B-1XX series run, with the beginning of the B-2XX series, or during the B-2XX run. Pat
