My herd includes 212, 216, 322 and 430. Got a 332 but it's a stubborn derelict, doesn't run right...still sorting it out. Sold on a 316, 317 and 214 after I redid them, plus a 110 and 140. Not an Onan guy, so I prefer the Yanmars...322 and 430. Several threads on here about putting the 2-speed rearend in 300 series machines...good swap apparently.

Looks good. Im curious where are you finding your recent purchases? Local? I recently just got my first 318, with 50” deck, Powerflow bagger and single stage blower. Im into looking for a plow and an enclosure for it now. I saw your Youtube showing the Cozy. That cab is exactly what i would like to have, without paying some outrageous price of coarse.
