My apologies everyone. I am in Eastern WV. Will drive up 350 miles for the right price/package. Some thing that has the ability to work ground engaging attachments.

Welcome to GTT. I have 2 Case tractors and they are very good. Attachments seem to be hard to find. A sleeve hitch on a Case would let it use a wide variety of Brinley attachments. AC/Simplicity and Bolens tractors are plentiful and there are alot of attachments around for them. Take your time to find a good deal. Good Luck, Rick

Well, it didn't take me long. I just picked up a JD 314 with plow and trailer for an "I can't pass it up" price of $350. Will post pics asap.

Still can't figure how to get pics from my phone to the forum, but have been tinkering with her a bit. Everything checked out on the electrical side except the solenoid, so got a new one in there from NAPA last weekend. Changed the fluids, cleaned the carb, new battery and presto! The ole gal lives!

Hell All,

 

Here are some pictures of the $350 JD 314 (not counting gas and U-haul fee, lol). Let me know what you think.

Yes it has the 14. I'm doing the ignition system this weekend. She runs but needs better spark.

Admin, Feel free to move this post if needed...

 

ALL CALL. I need the assistance of some of the more knowledgeable members here.

 

I have the 314 tuned up, shined, up, ready to go... but no attachments other than the snowplow and cart. I want to be able to use a roto-tiller and occasionally use single plow, harrow, cultivator for a food plot (I don't have any attachments yes, but I can pipe dream). Also before snow flies change to 4 way plow or snow blower. But right now I need to concentrate on getting ready for planting season for the garden and deer killing food plot.

 

My dilemma, sleeve hitch or 3 pt. Now I will preface that with, I don't know enough about JDs to even know how to begin to attach either one to the GT(could probably figure it out, I am pretty mechanical). Help! I am in need of a GT MASTER to teach a newbie.   

 

Let's not even get into the fact I want to do dual front hydro's... save that for later.

One of the best places to learn about attachments is to attend a GT plow day

I haven't been to one yet but have been told there are many people there willing to help answer most question you will have

I'm not sure if it is in the same location as last year, but if it is, I'm only about an hour and a half from there. Would love to attend this year!

You may want to start a new post either in the John Deere section or the implement section. But very quickly...
You have what is called a closed frame deere, as opposed to the open frame (318, 322, 4xx series).

Lift rod (the part that goes to your implement handle and raises/lowers the hitch) changes, but the lift assembly from any closed frame (110, 112, 140, 300, 316 kohler) should work.

If you go to the implement section there is an ongoing discussion right now about sleeve hitch vs 3 pt hitch - that might give you some info. A sleeve hitch will be cheaper and simpler, but a 3 point gives you more control and capability. Either is pretty easy to put on a closed frame...

If your handy, you can create either for your tractor. Plans for both are available - I think there are some in the manual section on here...
