I pull them both at about 1/3 throttle most of the time in, and that inlcudes up hills ( I have a fair amount of them that I do the plugging with it on). The 318 is even heavier in weight, so it wheel slip is a none issue IME. The 318 I owned sure didn't have any trouble. This 240 is the fore-runner to the 335/345/355 series and has the same exact frame, which is quite large/thick. It also uses the same exact implements.
Now- Are there any other implements you use with the Deere? I just want to know im not alone incorporating Vintage Garden Tractors into the mix. All customers that see them love them, they remember these from when they were kids. One of mine has a factory cigarette lighter in the dash from the 60's
