Well the Trilogy is complete. :twoonone:

Started with the Sears GT 5000 for the lawn and now snow blowing Bye
Followed up by adding the Bolens 1250 with FEL (summer restore project) :cheers:

The last link was a tractor that would be used for snow plowing and
general “Mule” duty.

Well here it is, John Deere 300 with 54” power angling plow, wheel weights, :twoonone:
16hp Kohler, Hydro (hand controlled) and duel brakes.

sixchows…

I got it on ebay. Its was from eastern PA (about 100 miles)
When I spoke to the fellow who owned it I told him I would
pick it up next Saturday and he said OK. After I hung up I
realized I had not asked him the dimensions of the tractor
so I called him back and he said “Hey, if I bring it to you
tomorrow can you pay me?” Yes Yes Yes I said.
He was in my driveway at 8AM this morning !!!

He spent about an hour here, really nice guy, went through everything
on the tractor. I runs really nice. He replaced it with a big wheel Case

I would have loved a Bolens HT-23 but too much $$$$

Other toys in garage are:
Kawasaki 4 X 4 Mule
Onan 20KW natural gas Gen Set on modified Northern Tool wagon
and of course the GT5000

That old 300 is a fine machine and is the twin of the 1978 316. It has dual front hydraulics, can be fitted with a rear sleeve hitch or a rear 3 point hitch. There was a kit back then to route the front hydraulics to the rear to operate a back hoe, hydraulically operated tiller, rear mounted ground saw (ditch witch), and some other nifty attachments. There was also a mechanically driven tiller. It was the top of the line garden tractor by Deere until the 400 came out.
