Looks good with the new shoes and shiny stuff on the front. Have fun with it.

After a long day on the road, 510 miles, I sold the 71-110 & picked up a 49 tall chute snowthrower today! :smile1: Needs a few dings hammered out & a paint job, but nothing serious. ~~ grnspot

Nice looking blower. Looks pretty wide on that trailer. Hope it doesn't need much more, but I'm sure you can handle whatever issues may arise. Good luck with it.

That looks great. How wide is it... Almost looks like a "OnePass Blower". Do the whole driveway in one pass.

Haven't measured it yet, but the trailer is 4' wide & there are only a couple of inches left! ~~ grnspot

That looks like a nice addition. Does that work with the 314? The tractors are 42" wide with the stock tires in the wide position.

I hope so! :wallbanging: Yes, it's the right model for the 300 series. Judging by using the 37& 37A on the 12 HP 112, it may work the 14 HP 314. But with the hydrostat, speed changes will be easier than with the gear drive. ~~ grnspot

The hydro will be better for using the blower. It allows you to get the right ground speed for the snow conditions while keeping the engine RPM's high. There are some walk behind blowers that use a hydro drive - Honda uses them and I think some of the expensive craftsman blowers do. For heavy snow it is the answer.

For me, it depends on the snow! I have a 54, 4-way blade for my 420, so sometimes the blade is better, sometimes the blower. ~~ grnspot

I usually plow my 300 ft. driveway using a 54 blade on my 2320. There are times when we get really large snowfalls of heavy wet snow. It is so heavy that I cannot push it up the hill on my driveway with a GT. I had a X475 with chains and a lot of weight on the back and in these situations I ended up trying to push the snow across the driveway to get to the top of the hill. With the 2320, which is 3000+lbs when set up for plowing, has chains and 4wd I can get to the top of the hill even in some seriosly heavy snow. It would be easier just to blow out the driveway in those conditions. My plan is to use the 314 with a blower in these conditions or alternately to get a 3pt pto blower for the 2320. It depends what blower I find first. The difference in snow conditions from storm to storm and in different climates makes snow removal a real challenge IMO.

The John Deere 314 looks wonderful. Love the Brinly rack on the front. Your trail ride is coming up soon too isn't it?
