Deck Compatibility for JD 318

Howdy again everyone!

I have access to a couple of newer / slightly larger mowing decks ... but don't know if they will fit on my (new to me) 318.

* 48" deck for GT or LX model
* 54" deck from a GT245
* 42" deck for L110 / L120

Can anyone tell me if these would work on my 318?

thanks in adavance for your help !
Jesse

Re: Deck Compatibility for JD 318

JD makes a 48" repleacment deck, it is basically a new style deck with 318 mounts. I don't know if it is just brackets or if the deck mounts are different too. I have one of the 48" replacement decks for my 318. It mounts and works great. But I don'ty know anything about the mounts or other tractors.

Re: Deck Compatibility for JD 318

I think you'd find the closest one would be the 48 inch deck, but the models you are showing have completely different mounts on their decks. You are compatible with the 140, and all 300 series decks, there is also a 38 inch too and if you get a rear PTO and 3 pt a couple of rear mowers.

40 - 48-INCH MID-MOUNT MOWER DECK (FOR 120, 140, 300, 312, 314, 316, 317, 318, 322, 330 AND 332 LGT)

The plot thickens ... I have a chance to get a 48" deck (really good shape .. new blades / bearings) that came off a 1973 JD 140 H1. Anything good or bad about this deck ... any idea what a good price would be for it. (No dents / welds / repairs ... very straight).

I notice it doesn't have gauge wheels on the front ... only the back. I don't see why I couldn't weld on the gauge wheels from an old rusty deck that I aquired with the purchase of my 318? right?

Thanks again !
Jesse

Re: Deck Compatibility for JD 318

The 140 deck will work - but you will need a set of lift arms for a 318.

Re: Deck Compatibility for JD 318

roberttrroll is correct about the arms. Also if you can weld or get them welded a set of front deck wheels is a good idea in my opinion!
