So after being with the previous owner for 4 years an getting well used, I stumbled across the ad on cl an decided to email about trading the GT275. The next day I checked my email an sure enough he was interested in the swap, the following week a friend an I went on the 40min drive to check Tank out. After a while of talking with the gentlemen an looking Tank over real well I said let's get it loaded up. Take the 40min drive back home with the kind sir in his truck pulling the 300 an parts to my house, an ounce he saw the GT275 an I saw the look on his face I knew the deal was sealed. An here are my pics from the first ones taken up Tire Wheel Automotive tire Tread Motor vehicle

Is that a tiller or a blower for it? Looked again and see it's a tiller. I think you did okay!

My new owner realised that with my plow at full angle I'll be running in fresh lose snow an might not push snow any farther so he decided that I needed a wider plow an even has a build thread about it. So the donar plow was a light weight maybe 36" blade that I cut down an added 12" to each side of the plow. I had a 6" over lap to ensure there would be enough strength in the welds to hold it in place making my stock 42" plow into a now 54" plow.

My new owner slacked an didn't get pics of my front rims while they were off getting paint but here is how I look as of yesterday. Wheel Plant Tire Vehicle Tractor

We don't really have that big of spiders or that many webs all the time,so I'm told there decorations for a day called Halloween I just don't understand humans I guess.

An from what I'm told my oldest brother is letting me have his snow plow guides I can't wait to see how I look with them.

This was my first tiller on a gt an it came with it. After using it I realized it had a couple issues the p.o. had the extension tines on backwards so i fixed that then blew the clutch disc also from when the tines were on backwards it loosened the shaft that holds the tines so when I took it apart to fix the tines an clutch I also took the lower covers off to.clean the old grease out an add new but I also tightened the bolts the hold the the shaft from wiggling.

Yes till goes up higher for some reason the ram the lifts it can't hold the weight an it slowly drops on the lift bar the bracket will rotate down to lock the tiller up. Mine is currently set in the most aggressive setting for the first few times so i can get the rocks worked up an picked out same with roots from the old shrubs.

I can flip my rims but they'll stick out farther then they already do. So I'll deal with them this way, an the 300 plow was a factory 54" the p.o. adapted a 200 series with hydrolics to work on the 300. Which he did a great job doing an it works great he used a deck lift ram to raise an lower the blade.

A set of 23x8.50-12's (used on the 312s and some 120s) on the back would give a narrower track than the 23x10.50-12s that came on the 300s
