Thanks the 42" was not enough since the rear tires stuck past the blade an the really would have now that I have the ags on it now the off set is a little different then stock jd but not by much

My rims are offset can flip them around to change the stance, maybe yours are too...?

Yes till goes up higher for some reason the ram the lifts it can't hold the weight an it slowly drops on the lift bar the bracket will rotate down to lock the tiller up. Mine is currently set in the most aggressive setting for the first few times so i can get the rocks worked up an picked out same with roots from the old shrubs.

I can flip my rims but they'll stick out farther then they already do. So I'll deal with them this way, an the 300 plow was a factory 54" the p.o. adapted a 200 series with hydrolics to work on the 300. Which he did a great job doing an it works great he used a deck lift ram to raise an lower the blade.

A set of 23x8.50-12's (used on the 312s and some 120s) on the back would give a narrower track than the 23x10.50-12s that came on the 300s

True I like the width of the 10.50's when I plow across the yard the cub has 6-12's an it made a mess of the yard last winter when it was wet snow

I like the 23x8.50-12s as they put more weight on a smaller surface area.

Well since it's still unseasonably warm in my neck of the woods an I've been itching to plow something I loosened some dirt an filled in the low spot just off the blacktop. This will also help keep water out of the garage when it rains.
