Went to a auction this morning and came home with a John Deere 318. Nice place and nice equipment. Wish I had more money as he had very nice equipment. John Deere A and B tractor went for $1000 each.

 Anyway he had a 1987 318 (150 year anniversary edition) with only 750 hours. The crazy thing is I already have a 318. I now have two. Already mowed with it and loved it. Runs good with no transmission creep.

I need to keep them apart, that way my wife will never know I have two. LOL

I have to go to St. Cloud, should I take the truck and trailer? I can swing northeast first.

 

PM me what it went for, it you don't mind. You sure as heck didn't get it at an auction in Zimmerman, JD's go sky high there.

Holy Carp! I used to make those into glass display cases. I would put probably 25-30 hours into one, and sell them for $1,200-$1,500! WTH?

Never knew they ever made those. Obviously before my time. :)
What's the difference from the regular 318?

Holy Carp!

 

Yep.  That's how you know a cat is here.  All they think about is fish and naptime.
