I have a Johnson Work horse Loader that fits the 317 JD and a few others that size. Is it very collectible? I know they are hard to find. Any ideas what they are worth? This one is complete and very good condition.

Lindas, Welcome to GTtalk, We're glad you joined us. It's hard to say without seeing it. There are always people looking for a loader for JD. tractors. Depending on the shape it's in, 600.00 to maybe tops 1000.00, I don't even like trying to price one without looking at it. It also depends on what other JD. tractors it will fiton without modification. I hope this helps

If it came off a 317 then I think it will fit any 300 series but I'm just going by what I've read I don't know for sure. I do know that the 420 and 430 take a different sub frame than the 300's.

I know that it will fit the 300 and 316 Kohler I don't think it uses the same sub frame as the 400 series, but I have been wrong before.

Welcome to the forum Lindas. Could you possibly post a picture of the loader? I am curious as to how it mounts to the tractor. I have never seen one for the older 300's.

Thanks. How wide is the bucket on your loader? The 317 itself is about 42" wide across the back I believe.

Thanks for the pictures. Do the rear mounting brackets attach to the axle? It looks like the front ones will bolt to the frame but the rear ones are wider. Perhaps there is some mounting hardware missing?

I don't know. We never mounted it. I am in Minnesota. Just west of Minneapolis.
