To those who asked, I'll just keep it on my watch list to see what it goes for, but won't bid on it unless it stays low. There are a few other things on the auction that I plan to watch, and hopefully bid on.

I broke down and put a bid on it this morning, but I'm pretty sure I won't get it. As I said before, the auction doesn't start until 6PM Monday. It is lot 1240, and the auction on it probably won't be until after 9PM.

 

But I will keep an eye on it (and the other things I'm watching and biding on), and let you all know what it goes for.

Well, I should have known better, but I didn't and I bought it. Paid too much, but quite a bit less than some of the "selling for" numbers other members talked about in previous posts. If things warm up a little, I will try to mount it on my 318, just to see it work. But eventually I plan to sell it on Craigslist or maybe EBay.

 

Here are a couple of pictures ot it on my truck endgate, after I picked it up this morning.

Any idea how old it is?  I think that would be a cool attachment to have.

No, don't know how old it is. I may try to do some research. I'ts serial number is 001736M, type E0542.  Hopefully here is another picture.

From the pics I could find I would guess it came with a 120/140 or early 300 series because it is green but am not an expert.  The pics of the later units show them in black.

The earliest units only had a type number, no serial number. I don't know where the cutoff for that is at.

I would date it around 1972-73'ish. The early ones from around 1969-70 had brass serial tags (extremely hard to find) and the 1971-74 ones had the aluminum tags. All of the later ones were decaled serial tags. I agree with Travis, since the unit is green, it would be from a 120/140.

 

I don't see the drive pulley for mounting to the clutch. Can I assume you didn't get that as part of the deal? I'd be interested in the unit if you are for sure going to sell it. I've been searching for one of these aluminum tagged units for a long time, as it would complete my pto unit collection, so if the price is right, we could hopefully work something out? Give me a PM sometime if you're interested.

 

Congrats on the purchase. :thumbs:

Troy could use that to run an elevator up to the skyhooks he's going to use to store stuff when he runs out of room in the new garage. Which, I do believe, was last Wednesday.

Here is a picture of the "brass" tag. I had it earlier, just didn't post it.

Aluminum tag right there.  I stick with my original guestimate on age and the tag supports that.

Update on the PTO Adapter:

 

I finally got around to mounting the Adapter on my 318. Had to pump up one of the front tires and charge the battery first to get it started and back it out of my shed. As  johndeereelfman said, I will need that pully, and also a longer belt. I did have to remove the mower drive mechanism or it would not have mounted.

 

Here are a couple of pictures of it on the 318.

Sorry about how they display. My previous pictures were taken with my camera, and these were taken with my wife's camera (more megapixals).

I have the same 542 PTO attachment.  Most were mainly bought with 140's from '68 - '72.  You do need the adapter pulley that bolts to the front of your PTO clutch with four bolts.  Belt is probably correct as the pulley is much smaller than your regular PTO clutch.  These adapter pulley's are VERY hard to find.  I'm actually looking into having one made out of aluminum so that I can use mine for something on my new to me JD 140.  :)

I was looking around Ebay and found this version of the PTO Attachment. Seller says it fits square fenders like 110, 112, and 200 series,. Wants $400 for it.
