I have a mid 80s 111 and am trying to find a plow. Is it only the 108,111,116 blade that will fit or will a 100 series or 110 etc fit?
Please let me know.. there is only one 111 in the area and I havent been able to get ahold of the guy and think his price is a bit high anyway.. though I may be wrong.. he wants 150.

When I bought mine he said it was a 42 inch. That only shows 30 or 38 inch. Is there any way to find out for sure what deck I got? It lists 30 inch and then 38 with adjustable lip and without. Not sure what the adjustable lip is.

I guess its a 38.. I just measured and each blade is 19. Just not sure what the adjustable lip is.

Could you post a pic of your 111? I have one and its not like all the others. I have a manual pto and my fuel tank is under the hood. I was looking for a pto clutch, went to all the JD dealers and they couldnt find anything about a manual pto. I just rebuilt it myself! lol good luck with your serch!

I will try to post pics tomorrow. I already got my shoes off. My gas filler neck is in the very back and mine has an electric pto.

Blah. OK going through the pics of the adjustable lip and not Im pretty sure I dont have it. I dont see wheels on the adjustable lip one and mine has wheels. Seems the spindle bearings are the same either way and thats something I need ASAP so I will go get those tomorrow.

I got ahold of this guy with the plow. He is absolutely firm on the 150. Does that sound fair? Ive seen em cheaper (before i got a 111 of course)

$150 sounds like a fall price. If you want it you'll likely have to pay it. At least that one looks to have all the parts. You might save $50 waiting but it depends on how badly you want a plow and for less $$ you'll likely end up with one in worse shape. That one looks to be in pretty good shape.

Think I am just gonna buy a la105 or 115 or 135 and a plow and all for it. I dont think even with the snow blade I am gonna be really happy with this mower. I do like it but I really like the styling on the new ones. The 105 is like 1300 and 500 for the snow blade/weights/chains so I think it may just be best to get something newer.

I know this thread is fairly old, but do you still need a plow, or know of anyone who needs one? I have a complete 108-116 plow
