Hi Buster Was looking at a 6211 myself, belonging to a friend. For your trans. probs. you've gotten many great suggestions. With my 728 and 4111 3 speed tractors, I'm compelled to wait until I see the drive belt and/or pulley come to a complete stop-3-10 seconds. Normally, it then shifts right in gear, but, sometimes I start to ease the clutch out and then it pops right in. I only cut grass and don't have to shift much-just keep rolling. So these things are no problemo-I'm happy the things runs after 30 years on their original engines, and w/gates NAPA belts-a no no. I also spent many, many, days undoing problems I bought from previous owners as I tried to save money (probably would have been better off buying new 20 years ago) but I'm a glutten for a 'good deal', saving old stuff, and the resulting punishment. And maybe, resulting satisfaction of solving problems others couldn't (ego gratification). Realize, not too many sell old tractors cause they run so well, the lease is up and it's time to turn them in. So the question is, barring the broken, screwed up parts of previous owners, does the 11 HP 6211 seem to be a well built, reliable set-up for cutting grass. Thanks Andy
