    New to me 2012 X748

    I recently purchased an X748 with a 60" 7 iron deck to take the place of my 316 which a has (2) decks- 46" and 50", 54" snow plow with hydraulic lift and angle ( additional spool valve was added to the 316 with a selector switch on the dash ), as well as the powerflo unit on the side of the 46" deck with the MCS cart.

    I was posting to see if anyone has attempted to mount a plow from a 300 series tractor to the X7. It seems that the front bracket on the X7 is about an inch wider than the bracket on the 316. Not sure if someone make an adapter plate for this? I think I may try to do this myself as $1500 is alot to shell out for the quickhitch /blade combo.

    In addition I just heard from my dealer that the powerflo unit is not available for the 60" 7 iron. I do not think they are correct as I have seen them online. I do want to mount the MCS cart to the X748 when next leaf season rolls around.

    Any input is appreciated and I will post some pictures when I figure out how to do so.

    Great Looking X748. It Looks weird to me because it doesn't have a Loader sub frame on though. I am just so use to the sub frame on mine that they Look weird without it.
