WTB JD 300 series 50" deck GA

Found a good deal on a 50" power flow, but have a 46" deck. So would like to find a 50" in decent shape. Can be a shell or complete. Thanks.

Re: GT Grapple for Quick Hitch

That is pretty stout compared to the quick hitch itself. Looks like its got to be atleast 3/8 thick metal.

Re: First use report: Grapple from Innovative Tractor Attachments

Has anyone put one on a 318 or similar? My ram mounting holes for the angle cylinder are different. Especially when looking at the mounting instructions.

Re: First use report: Grapple from Innovative Tractor Attachments

Cool. I'd love to see some pictures of it. I guess that plate prevents the pivot from moving side to side as well. How hard is it to remove the cylinder?

Re: First use report: Grapple from Innovative Tractor Attachments

Very cool. How does the angle cylinder get purposed to operate the jaw? Unless I'm just not reading it right. I've always wondered what other uses could be had for the front quick hitch.

Re: John Deere front weight bracket

Yeap thanks. I'm getting some 3" plate to make up a rear hitch so was going to order some extra to make some weight dividers for the front. That rear plate looks like its 3/8 thick, seem right?

Re: John Deere front weight bracket

I could be interested in one. Would there be an option/cost reduction for no paint? I might want to add a thing or two. Was going to build one but your brackets will look a lot better than my...

Re: 332 with unusually low hours.

Yea. These have been there for 27 years I'm sure. If the bearings come of with the shaft then you either didn't have a snap ring, or blew out the casting. I don't doubt that the spindle and inner...

Re: 332 with unusually low hours.

What is the best way to change the bearings then? After the 2nd one broke, I decided to just press the shaft back in with the bad bearings. Hence it sounding awful. I just returned the new bearings...

Re: 332 with unusually low hours.

Thanks, it should be pretty fun, I'm looking forward to it. So that sounds pretty similar to yours then?
