    Spring is here...

    My dad recently picked up a beautifully restored and re-powered John Deere lawn Tractor... replacing an aging, albeit big, riding mower... (his distinction).... Since he picked it up, I bet he's only been able to drive it twice... Click image for larger version.

    Is that a 317? 318? Looks like it has the hydraulics, and I'm with Bob, would love to have a larger one than I currently have. I won't complain though, even for $500 my 214 has been a great little tractor.

    Darren it was a 318 with hydraulics,... until the original engine failed. A friend of my Dad's owned it, and he replaced the motor with a Honda 20hp. so it is now a 320? It's a pretty cool little tractor, even has the reserve gas tank so if you run out 'in the field' you can limp back to get more gas.
