It's spring time and lots of folks are lookin' for a new mower.  I've been doin some tradin myself and got ahold of a good running John Deere 300 yesterday. I've been looking for something to run my tiller and snow blower and the 300 fits the bill.  It came with a interesting little 38 inch mower deck.  It looks like a 200 series mower deck with a 300 series adapter kit.  The motor runs great, the sunstrand 15 tranny works just fine.  I had the sides off of it in the pics I took this morning. 

I sold the restored 140 I bought...I could'nt pass up the offer I had for it and I was always worried about breaking that plastic headlight bezel or the hood.

Looks pretty solid. Those tractors have a strong drivetrain and are real work horses.

James,

 

The 41 deck was first offered on the 140 and then later on the 120, 300, 316k, 314, 317.  I am using the 41 off a 316K on my 314 right now until I get the 48 rebuilt.  The 41 takes different front draft arms than the 48.  I am going to go with the 41 on my 120.
