I think you stole that Deere. Is it complete & in good shape? I've seen them sell for over 4 times what you paid Shocked
Those things are tanks... built very heavy. You might want to look into a winch, because if it gets stuck, it's going to get Real stuck LoL

ditto the tank thing. this thing will weight in around 750 pounds.
good... better traction, a little more stable than the cheap stuff, pretty much bullet proof, plenty of torque
bad... 6.5 mph top speed, hydro, not gonna pull it out with a throwaway mower when it gets stuck, dont even want to talk about rollovers.

start saving up for some 26x12x12 ags, ($100-$140 each) they will take you all most anywhere you want to go... but you can get stuck. I keep a boat winch on my heavy stuff and hope there is a tree within 30' of where I get stuck. all of my trail stuff is over 600 pounds and some times they are not a heavy enough of an anchor to pull another one out.

if I remember right, the 300' s were only built in '75, 300lgt for a few years after that

Looking at these tires for it
http://www.ebay.com/itm/350525611137?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

What do you think? Front tires ideas? I was thinking a 18x8.5x8 unless they make a 20x8.5x8?

They look to be the same ones i got on my atv just on size taller. I have no complaints with them a decent mud/snow tire. If they are the same brand as mine they should lasted quite a long time, I got about 10 years out of them. You got a real good buy on those tires.
