Right hand lift, copied from an original. Runs a blade on the front at the same time you have a tiller or other rear attachment on. I bent the pin on the plate and need to straighten it up one of these days to get rid of the stiff spot in the swing. I got this and two other tractors from the same guy over by Geneseeo Illinois a few years back. This, a 712S and a 712H. At one time I had all 3 running. The 712S died first and I used parts from it to fix up the 712H, which blew the engine last year. Its still sitting next to the 210 in the back of the shed for a decision..
