Good morning and happy Friday everyone! I鈥檓 headed into rehab for a shoulder massage and then some terrorist arm stretching 馃槷 Then I鈥檓 headed home to get into my grubby clothes and do a little wrenching. Bought a 318 yesterday with a terrible case a wire butchery and rear pto. Will pull the pto to list on evil bay. What鈥檚 everyone up to today and this weekend?

I鈥檓 pretty sure if it had a mower deck with it, it wouldn鈥檛 find its way back home:LOL:
Gonna finish up getting the 317 ready to sell.

N2, that seat should be in the ugly seat post, wherever it went. Lol
New seat would probably help sell tractor.

I had intended on installing a new seat selling it for $1200 with 33 tiller with extension and 54鈥 4way snow plow and the 46" rebuild mower seen in that pic up ^ there.

Last weekend some guy saw me tilling my side yard on the 316 with hydro 30 tiller and asked of I had one for sale. I showed him the 317 and I said $1200. He said he鈥檇 give me $1000 after asking if I鈥檇 take $800 for the package deal on the 317.

Am I asking enough at $1200 or not enough for the 317 3 piece package deal? Tractor starts right up, purs like a kitten and the deck sounds good with all new bearings.
A four way 54 plow is 600$ in fair condition. The tiller pto goes for 300, the tiller 2-600 the 317 8-1500$ with deck. I think your price is very reasonable. The market out here this year is just plain bad though. But it鈥檚 not like a house where you have to sell it. JD equipment does not go bad or down in value.

So if I put a new seat on it then I would be ok to ask $1500?

Granted we don't get much snow so the plow is not really needed by many here in the area I live but there are parts that get snow.

I can't tell you how many times I have thought about loading up the trailer and taking a road trip and selling the 3x plows along the way but then it would feel more like work than a vacation :/

The guy wants it for his property way down in a country in south america, El Salvador I think.
Here it is running with seat dafety bypassed and mower running. I know, I know, I know not safe. Do the belts normally flap around this much? Sorry for the poor video.

It's headed south...duct tape and sell for $1350.
I already agreed to $1k, but I think I'm gonna keep the battery though ;) It already feels like i'm giving it away.

Other thing is it鈥檚 an easy sale and honestly I need the space. $1500 would be great but I鈥檓 not sweating the money.
Good morning guys. Looks to be a very nice weekend shaping up. Was hoping to rewire a 318 that has toggle ignition and push button start but my better half wants to go yard sailing and it鈥檚 Mother鈥檚 Day weekend so,鈥 I guess I鈥檒l drive and hobble around to look at baby clothes and weird dishes! 馃ぃ馃ぃ

Maybe you鈥檒l find something green and yellow. Lol
Her knee was hurting so we called it about 9:30. Got the 318 rewired. I can鈥檛 believe some went through all the trouble to add 6 wires and cut out a plug instead of buying a 25$ ignition switch! Got it in and voila!! Pto switch and tdcm was fine,鈥 amazing 馃憤馃徎馃憤馃徎 This tractor might be one of the best starting tractors to come through here. Just touch the key, no choke cold or anything and she roars to go to work. Needs some cosmetics though.

So I just checked the SN. It鈥檚 a 1999. So that means it averages just over 17 hours a year.:ROFLMAO:
Technically less considering that I鈥檝e put about 100 hours on it.

Right! It鈥檚 funny how long it takes for hours to pile up. I鈥檓 on my 420/44 constantly and between the last oil change last fall and now I鈥檝e only put on 30 hrs. 馃槷 She鈥檚 almost at 2900 hrs. Not too bad for the old Onan 馃憤馃徎
