Purchased, Summer of 2015. This JD 330 is equipped with a 16HP Yanmar 3-cyl liquid-cooled diesel engine. Mower attachment is a 50" mid-mount mower deck. Below(left photo), with mower deck removed, is the tractor as I purchased it. With 1996 hours on the meter, it is all original, except for the seat and right front tire. The right photo was taken after installing a new seat & grill badges. Plans are to use this tractor to maintain a garden. The tractor will be completely restored in the future.
Fall, 2015. My first project was to build a 3 point hitch. I searched the web for ideas & measurements. After purchasing some of the needed material, I began the fabrication. Click on the photos for descriptions.
9/28/17 Having used the tractor for a while, I removed the fender deck to clean underneath. While this was done, I decided to freshen it up a bit.
10/4/17 I purchased a WARN blade last year and built a mount to use on the 3 pt. hitch. This worked fairly well, but I could do more dirt work with a front mounted blade. Below are photos of the fabrication of the front mount. It should be complete in a few days. All material used is from my scrap metal pile. I did purchase the 2" receiver. Will add more photos later.
