Hello i'm gathering up info for my next project. There are a lot of JD's near me and am looking at putting together a GT loader of one brand or another. So have some questions about the 318 series. First off does it push enough fluid to run a front loader or would i need to add a separate pump?
Next would be adding a rear hitch, i did a search found some 3pt kits for sale looks like they connect to the rockshaft to raise and lower? How much weight can this lift, could i pick up a 300-lb weight box for ballast?
Next question is there a source for seals on the ps cylinder? Then how much does a belly mower sell for in decent shape? Final question how are the diesel version of these tractors, still get motor parts and are the hydraulics the same as with the gas models? thanks for any info.
