Hey guys I posted a thread a little while ago about getting a 420, but I've decided to keep my 318 since I know its a good machine. I think eventually I want to find a 2 stage blower for it, but for now I think if I can get a hydraulic plow I can scrape up the snow that comes off my roof. That compacted snow is a real PITA to clean up and it doesn't do my back any favors either. I found a plow here in Vt, but its made for a 420. Its about the only one I can find in the state. He said it would fit with some one inch shims on each side or by simply narrowing the mounting plate. By looking at some pics of the 420 there is no way that the pins would reach the frame of my tractor if my tractor frame is 2'' narrower than a 420. I'm also not sure by looking at some pics if you can simply cut the plate and weld it back together and still be able to have it fit back on the plow and allow the plow to function properly. He's asking a fair price and he seems very knowledgeable about John Deere tractors, but I'm a little nervous about getting burned with something that wont work on my 318. Its cool to because it has a custom shovel built on it that swivels so you can use it as a plow or shovel. Anyways I thank anyone who can help me with this.
