Wow, I didn't think I would ever get done. I had started on it before our basement got flooded and then it was put on hold for a couple of weeks. I finally started back on it the other day. I gotta admit it isn't the best scanning job I have ever done and I knew it wouldn't be the greatest because of it being a bound paperback. Thankfully it held together as I would have felt bad giving Gibby back a manual that was messed up even though he said it would be alright.

It is uploading now, I will post a link to it once it is done. I will be straight up, the manual is huge and I don't have time to split it up into smaller sizes right now. So for the meantime you will either need to be a senior member which is a member with 100 posts or a site supporter to download it. Please don't ask me when I will have time to split it down. I have a lot of stuff that takes priority.

Thanks George. The older 300 series continue to be popular tractors for members of this forum.

Hi nutndun I'm buying the 317 off gibby so after you send it back to him if you need it again just let me know. I'm looking for plow or snowblower for it. This will be big change from the old 110's I have.

If I was more computer literate, I'd offer to to split the file. If I get a chance this weekend, I'll try to read up on .pdf files.

I did manage to optimize the file and got it down to under 60MB which is really surprising. I didn't think it could be made that much smaller of a file size. Originally it was 600MB. With it being under 100 MB anyone can download it. I am going to give it a try with the other John Deere manual and see if I can get the same results.

I tried to download the manual. When I click on the "download" button, all I get is thousands of funky characters on my screen. Am I doing something wrong? I use a MAC and have download pdf files before with no problem.

Interesting that happens to me on my home desktop. Haven't had a chance to look into it yet.

Fireman, I have done that,but I don't have a Mac. I just save them to the drive now, then open with the reader. Seems the browser plug-in doesn't work that good.

I tried saving to my desktop which it did. When I opened it I got the same thing. Thousands of funky characters. Maybe I'll try it on my PC. I've never had this problem downloading PDF's before.

Something is definitely wrong. I downloaded it and tried to open with Reader X. Now I can't get the reader to work at all with any .pdf's. Houston, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!!!

I had to uninstall the reader and reinstall to get it to work again. We will look in this!

I know there was an update recently for the adobe reader x and after it was installed it wouldn't open any pdf's on my work computer. I rebooted the computer and then it worked fine. I would definitely like to figure out the problem though, if I have to save it in a different file size and re-upload it then I can do so.

There are several different file types to split this automatically . It depends on how you want it split....
