HI I am new here. I have been into john deeres for about 5 years now. I got started into the older garden tractor scene when my fatherinlaw gave me my first old one. A wheel horse c111 That he bought brand new. That one is coming down this winter and getting redone. The second was my 214 which I love. Now I am getting into the 140s and 300 series. I recently aquired a 316, 317, and 140 h3. I had a 314 in there too but bought that and unloaded it right away. Here is the pic I could find. Some day soon I will have to update all of them I only have pics of a couple right now.

Welcome to the forum. We like pictures here so please post some of all your latest tractors. It looks like you both like the 214. It looks to be in really nice shape. Glad to have you with us.

:welcometogttalk: Glad to have you here. Just out of curiosity, what is going on in the first pic? Surely the dozer isn't pushing?
Thanks for the pics, good to see the little ones enjoying a ride with Dad.

Tmo, that looks like a lot of reading there. Hope sknap gets a few more posts in so he can get them downloaded before the weekend. Thanks for posting the list. It should make it easier to find the manuals he might need.

Kenny,
Yeah I considered the amount of time it would take to download those, but I also wanted to try and make it easier to find the right manuals. The ones he chooses first will depend upon him - I would be hard pressed myself deciding on which one I needed the most and when.

Thanks for the manual links. I downloaded the 316 318 service manual yesturday. I am going for the 317 parts manual today. LOL and yes that is a mean sand box to. If you step on one of those trenches while its fresh you will go up to your shoulders. LOL the dozer in the pic later went past the tracks before we got it out.

Basically it looks like another track with cutters on it. It is called a one pass trencer. Its basically a cat machine that we built in the shop to put drainage tile down. They used them for irrigation and construction. IT cuts the trench and lays the sock all at the same time. The stick wasnt on the tracked machinein the pic. We were using it to pull the dozer. That one goes 25ft down 3 ft wide. The big one goes 55foot down. 5 foot wide. They use them for making a baracade for contaminated soil to. Lots of work for the govt and lots of money. I was just a mechanic for them till I was in a bad accident and now I got toplay with smaller toys.
