I like all colors. Especially if they run.


Hey, that's MY favorite kind of tractor too! :laughingteeth:

I wouldn't mind getting one myself but JD tractors are not very common in this neck of the woods.


Thats unfortunate JD , on the west coast you cant swing a dead CRAFTSMAN without hittin something green

There are a lot of the newer ones around but the older ones are scarce. I have never seen a 140 for sale. You see the occasional 318 and there was a 300 for sale a couple of weeks back. The prices tend to be crazy as well.
There seem to be more of the Bolens and the MF tractors than anything else. Of course there are lots of the newer lawn mower type craftsmans but very few Sears GT's.
There was one large agricultural JD dealership here for the province and I'm not sure if there were any L and G dealers in the 70's. My 314 was originally purchased in another province.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I just parked my 318 behind my 317 tonight (it's been sitting on my transport trailer while the family went camping). I'm going to set the 317 up as a full time mowing machine, and the 318 as a full time working machine...that way I'll have the best of both worlds whenever I want it. ; ^)

I'll post some pics later along with some questions I'll have...the 3 point hitch seems to be missing a few parts, so I'm going to see about getting that all dolled back up as it'll come in handy.

Thanks again!

Good to have you here Allen. We look forward to the pictures. The 3pt is definitely worth getting sorted out as it greatly increases the utility of the tractor.

It's funny how excited a person gets when they get their first Deere, but in almost all cases they want to get a second one. I was in heaven with my 316k, but I'd really like a 425 or 430.

Yep, you got it bad - the only way to get over the sickness is to remove the tumor. Just breath steady - I can have someone there in a few hours to pick up all those bad old machines and get you back on the road to health :wave:

Green is like Lays - you can't own just one.....
