I have a 315-8 that I use for mowing at my place and snow plow duties at my dad's.  My heavy duty ramps are getting a bit much to handle these days and dad decided he was no longer going to take his scooter on the road so he gave me his aluminum ramps to use.  They support 500 pounds each.  I'm thinking this tractor weighs around 650 pounds but I haven't found anyplace to verify that.  At the moment, the ramps handle it fine but I walk along side of it while it's in low gear.  I want to be sure it can support both me and the tractor before I get on and try.  Does anyone know what this particular model weighs?  Just the bare tractor weight would be good, no deck, no plow.  I can add in the weights and me (The big weight) to see what I have.

You know, I've looked on Tractordata.com twice and I have yet to see that tractor listed.  Others have told me the same thing.  Is everyone just going by the 314-8?  I would guess they are the same anyway.  Anyway, thanks.

I see now.  It has "GT" in front of it.  Wasn't looking for that.

So, 650 with fluids (gas, oil, and a beer) plus Jeff weighing in at a svelte 180. Looks like you have a 170# buffer.

You can go by the 314-8. If your 315 has a Command motor it will be a bit lighter due to the aluminum block verses the cast iron on the Magnum or K Series.

I would get an empty weight on what ever you haul it with and while you have it loaded get a weight and and subtract your loaded weight from empty weight that way you know for sure how much it weights no guessing you should be able to weight from a gravel pit to a grain elevator for as much as a few bucks to free . I would hate to see anyone not take in to accout snow build up on the tractor and get hurt that's just my 2 cents
