Having trouble finding a sleeve hitch for the 317, I need to grade a very rutted dirt driveway and want to buy a briny box blade or a blade but John Deere does not sell an intregal hitch for the 317. What are my options? Always appreciate all the information from all the people our there who know. Driveway has been used for 20 years, I put the driveway in through the woods with equipment I no longer own.

That is the sleeve hitch, there were also 3-point hitches available.

Both are rare and expensive now.


Honestly I would go find a 54c blade for grading, it works much better then a front or rear blade, and can be weighted to add scraping force.

That is a model 43c from a geardrive. I think it needs some modifications to fit a hydrostatic, and it lacks the adjustable angle of attack of a 54c.

Thanks much rydplrs, I wasn't sure if it would fit. I will continue to search for a 54c.
