Just purchased a 318 (including a parts 318). Will be using it to landscape some new land I have. Will cut grass (aka weeds) plus move a lot of dirt, gravel and big rocks around. I plan to get a Buford Bucket and some stuff needed to make it the workhorse I need.
Stand by for questions as I get familiar with it.
