  1. Keeping 318 from Pushing Sideways While Plowing

    John Deere Forum
    Blade is in float position. I’ve been using a 3” pvc pipe over the blade when I’m plowing my yard areas, too. I’ll use down pressure to scrape off hard pack snow with the blade straight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Snow plow edge material

    Lawn and Garden Tractor Accessories
    I have to plow a bunch of my yard for different reasons. I bought a 5’ section of 3” PVC pipe and cut a 1/8” line down one side. With the table saw and pound it on the steel blade edge. Now I can just leave it in float and go. I used to take it off to do the asphalt driveway but lately have just...
  3. Keeping 318 from Pushing Sideways While Plowing

    Thanks. I think I’ll get the V61s. I might try the chain on the tires first, though. I believe I have some bike chains sitting around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Keeping 318 from Pushing Sideways While Plowing

    John Deere Forum
    Yeah, I try not to expect miracles. The 54 blade perfectly clears the sidewalk when angled, except when it’s sliding. And I hate changing between the blade and the thrower. Maybe a v-plow attachment would be cool. I assume the tri rib tired will give me more bite than the V61s. Can you point...

    I haven’t tried using the brakes to help with this. I’ll try that. I also like the idea of running “chains” around the front tire. Ultimately it sounds like better weight distribution and some v61 tires are first in order. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ok. I’ll take some weight off. The extra weight sure helps the rear tires though. Wish I could add extra up front. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Keeping 318 from Pushing Sideways While Plowing

    John Deere Forum
    My 318 with 54 blade pushes itself sideways while plowing snow with the blade angled. I realize I should get some tri-ribbed tires for the front but is there anything else I can do? I've got 6 suitcase weights off the back. I wondered about adding weight to the front of the tractor to see if...
  8. Slow Hydraulic Cylinder

    John Deere Forum
    It was a bad cylinder. I bought a cylinder from Flip Manufacturing from their Ebay store. It was $95 shipped. It was plug and play and they have very good customer service. Now I just hope it lasts. I did find the thread about rebuilding these old cylinders and I'll try my hand at...
  9. Slow Hydraulic Cylinder

    John Deere Forum
    Thanks for the explanation, Tudor. That's what made sense to me, regarding how the cylinder was operating. Also, I remember reading a thread about repairing these cylinders a while back. Thanks for the tips, Bob.
  10. Slow Hydraulic Cylinder

    John Deere Forum
    Since the cylinder is leaking like a sieve I’m going to wait until my new cylinder arrives. Both hydraulic lines were used, in ‘good’ condition - ones that I had accumulated along the way. I ordered two new lines from auxiliary hydraulics too. I’ll update once the cylinder comes. I was able to...
  11. Slow Hydraulic Cylinder

    John Deere Forum
    The 54 blade for my 318 was leaking hydraulic fluid. I replaced some hoses on my angle cylinder side and when I tried it out it moved VERY slowly. What I thought were leaky fittings was a leaking cylinder, coming out of the ram end. I hooked up the lift cylinder to the left-side hydraulic...
  12. Cilantro Issues

    Home Garden
    I'm in MN. We have issues every year with our cilantro bolting too fast. We've tried growing it in containers to and it doesn't do well. What do you do to get good cilantro growing? We use it in garden salsa all summer long. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. 2 Cycle Surge - Toro CCR

    Snow Removal Equipment
    I picked up 3 Toro CCR throwers - One 3650 and two 2450s, along with a Honda HS520. All non running with old gas in them and for dirt cheap. The plan is to keep one and sell the other three. I'm keeping the Honda. I got all of them running and sold a Toro already. The remaining two Toros both...
  14. HF pneumatic tires don't inflate

    Lawn and Garden Tractor Accessories
    I have 2 10" tubeless tires from harbor freight that I can't get to inflate. It's driving me crazy. I've tried cinching the tire with rope and even resorted to trying starter fluid. I have a 60 gal air compressor with the pressure all the way up. Does anyone have experience with these tires...

    Huh. I guess I didn't know that. I'll have to look into that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  17. Cab Rear View Options

    Lawn and Garden Tractor Accessories
    What do you use to see behind you while in your cab? My cozy cab came with a small, round convex mirror on the front windshield. It's mostly useless. Thinking of buying a suction cup side mirror but thinking it might not stick it the cold. Maybe a bigger rear view works better? I hate craning...
  18. 318 Ready for winter

    John Deere Forum
    I got super lucky and bought it on a 318. Took it off and sold the tractor for what I bought it for and kept the cab for free. My luckiest find. I found a small propane heater that fits nicely in the back that sorta keeps the cab warm. I smile each time the snow blows back onto the windshield...

    A smooth chute helps a lot. I did the 36t sprocket mod and the flapper mod and it's a beast. Get a cab and you could spend all day out there! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'd say about $800 this time of year, plus or minus some depending on your location. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
