I bought a E069 plow for my 317 and planned on making a lift setup for it. Last year was a hard and early winter so I just used it as it was. My back gave out a few times lifting it and putting pin in to plow. Mainly just dragged it around.
This past summer I found a 54" with the hydros! Wow! No more lifting!
I love garage sales.lol Paid 100 for it and 25 for a bigger deck. Both are rough but hope to have a friend do some welding for me this coming summer.
First pix is with the 212 plow on the 317.IMG_1596.jpg

Congratulations! Well, the hitch is a bit rusty but that can be dealt with. I'd say you got an excellent deal for 100$. Normally the angling cylinder and lines would probably fetch close to that amount.

That is a sweet set up and it did not break the bank, Congrads.

Thanks all. I had a chance to try it out 2 days ago and all I can say is WOW! Love it.
The extra width made plowing time half as long. No more achy back...;)
Any suggestions on how to fix the rusted out corner? I,m guessing they had it standing upright and
the corner rusted. Also...is there a shut off for the hydro to the deck so the plow works faster? I looked
but did not see anything. Anyone need a E0691 plow...;)

There is a mechanical lockout rod that you can get to keep the deck lift cylinder from moving. They are no longer available but you should be able to make one. The rod shows up in the parts diagrams for the tractor if you check on JDParts.com. I've not investigated it yet but I also would like to build one for the 314 I have. For the blade you need to have the rotten piece cut out and a new piece bent to shape and welded in. Any welding shop should be able to do that for you.
