Got a little more done on the trailer yesterday. Here are a few pictures.

had to make a few temp braces to hold in place and it worked ok...

think the rear is a little out of square so i am going to have to release those welds and strighten it up a bit.

here it is in a little mockup. the cart is going to set above the wheels when it is finished so i can use pully to power a vac/blower or other attachments as well. i was going to take a piece of 2X2 angle about 6" long to bolt this on to the trailer frame but was wondering if anyone had any other ideas for a quick attachment and removal setup.

this is an idea of what i am going for with regard to the attachment.

Tractor ready for reassembly

Really tempted to start the paint process sense I have the thing appart but my luck the day I start painting we will get 12" of snow and I will have no plow tractor. Also was thinking of a different paint job, any comments on color? Really liked the paint job that a member did on their 70 last year I think, was a different shade of yellow. I was thinking yellow body, black wheels and green accents.

And Santa I would like some Ag tires that fill the entire fender well for Christmas. Please ship them to NE so they are here in time for the snow. Thanks and remember

ONe thing I learned quickly about Nebraska weather - Don't tempt Mother Nature. Applying paint will certainly assure 12" of snow that I would rather NOT have. :(

As for color, I know that people have done up custom color 317's using dogwood white for the main color (body/wheels/mower deck) and John Deere yellow for the hood and regular yellow seat. Looks different. If that is your thing than I say go for it. :thumbs: I am contemplating a custom color treatment for my 1966 110. Why? Because I can. :smilewink:

AS for the 70 you mentioned, Lowell called that tractor a "70i" with the "i" standing for "industrial." He borrowed the colors and paint scheme from the JD line of industrial equipment.

Had to get a little creative with the motor mount that broke off. Here is what I came up with...

Maybe sometime down the line I can repower but for now we can see how she holds up. Now time to get her back together.

The 317 is assembled and running like a champ. Amazing the difference a new drive shaft will make...doesn't act like it is going to fall apart now when i start it.

Decided to wait on the paint and finish the trailer first.

Nice machine and idea with the spare trans. my only problem is that it would need to be heavy to keep the wheels from spinning when any secondary attachment is under load. All of the trans gearings are reversed, therefore its going to need a lot of "umph" behind it. Would make one heck of a spreader though.

The weather man is saying snow.

"A winter storm will start impacting much of the area Wednesday afternoon and continue through Wednesday night.
Areas of heavy snow along with substantial blowing and drifting snow are expected to develop over the area Wednesday, perhaps as early as early afternoon but especially by late afternoon. A Winter Storm Warning has been posted for southwest Iowa and for Eastern Nebraska southeast of a line from David City to Decatur" we will see how accurate this is in the morning :rolling:

:driving_big_tractor:

There should be a plow on this thing. anyway i say let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. the 12" they are talking about will be fun to play in. even got the chains out and ready this morning.

I hear ya! The RF 110 will handle about 8" max in one full swipe. Any more than that and I take a half blade width.
This was two years ago and this was the 2nd time out that day.

It snowed...and then it snowed some more. So I can finally say the weatherman was right! I will have to get some pictures up tonight but the deere did well. Without the chains I would have been in a world of hurt but I didn't have to get off the tractor a single time to get unstuck, unlike last year. My neighbor has a 2 stage snowblower that he was struggling with for an hour with the chute clogging up so I took the plow over and we made a 10 min. job of his driveway. first snow is always so fun!

well I have been itching for some more snow and I got it last night.  so this morning I got to have a few hours of fun.  My neighbors all look at me a little funny as I am plowing our circle.
