    17p behind a D105

    Hi all
    We have a d105 (never again - was not involved in the decision making process...), wondering how it would go with a 17p? Would only be used for lugging gardening equipment, soils, plants, maybe the odd bit of gravel etc, have other tractors/trailers for anything much heavier. Preference would be the 17p over the 10p for usefulness obviously but not at the expense of the d105.
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Cheers.

    My brother has a LA105 and pulls a metal lawn cart that is as big as the 17P but much heavier even when empty. I've had the 17P myself for many years. The 17P is very lightweight by itself and should easily perform the tasks you have planned for it.

    I too have had heavy metal carts in the past but enjoy the ease of handling the 17P. I can move it in and out of the garage effortlessly and I like that the poly tub is impervious to dings, dents and rust.

    The **only** downside to the 17P is that due to the up-swept shape of the tail section it will not dump cleanly like a traditional box-style cart. But in the 8 years or so of ownership it has not been a problem for me.

    Don't waste your money on the 10P.

    Doesn't the D105 have that wonder CVT transmission? I don't think I would do anything to add stress to it.

    If thatís the plastic one, yep.... thatís the main reason Iím hesitant. We have just replaced the variator pulley I think it was, which had worn down to round as opposed to hexagonal.

    I see not a lot of these fail, but more as time goes on. Leaking axle seals, debris issues, belts, broken variators. One of my parts distributors used to carry parts for them, but not anymore. The company sells replacement parts and completes using Amazon as their distributor network now I guess.

    No reason at all NOT to get the 17P. You can always load it a bit lighter, but when you upgrade tractors later, you will still have the larger capacity.
    Then again, it looks awful small behind my 2025...but great behind the 318!

    Thanks everyone for the thoughts. I agree with the idea of getting the 17, and loading it lighter for now as the D105 most definitely WONíT be around forever and the next one we buy certainly would be up to the job.
    Iím in Australia and our prices on them here are crazy to say the least (dollar conversion works out to be nearly $600 US for the 17p, about $350 US for the 10p) so trying to convince my husband that the bigger one is a necessity. Do think long term we wonít regret having more capacity.

    I would go for the 17 and not look back.

    While you don't have to fill it up with heavy stuff, often you are moving bulky stuff like leaves, and the extra capacity is useful.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    Do you have access to Brinly equipment in Australia? https://brinly.com/product-category/carts/

    They make the 10P and 17P carts for JD. They are pretty much identical except the tubs are black. Around here the Brinly version of the 17P cart can be had for $100-150 LESS than the JD 17P.

    I also just noticed that Agri-Fab is also selling their version of the 17P cart. Currently at Lowe's it is $319.

    No unfortunately we donít have Brinly, Iíd looked into that already, Iíd say shipping it over would negate any savings unfortunately. There are a few other generic ones available over here but wouldnít be as large and probably not the same quality either.
    Think you lot have convinced me, 17p it is, husband will get over it after he realizes Iíve saved him multiple wheelbarrow loads.
