I'm starting this thread, hoping all owners of Power Kings... new, old, in between....running, dead, shiny new paint, or the special ''brown'' color... or whatever condition it may be post some pics of your tractors.

Any pic is great, sitting still, in operation, any season....

Post your pic, and the year, and model of the tractor...plus a description of any attachment (model #/size etc.) Plus a little story behind the pic is great too...ie: This was my dad's, he bought it new, I cleaned up some junk for an elderly neighbor and they gave it to me, I found this behind a barn, etc.

my 75 1614, my dad bought this about 5-6 years ago and we restored it. we experimented a lot with clear coat and it got all cracky and messed up, it should be done again now. over time i started using it then he slowly stopped and i was using it 90% of the time and he just mowed with it. after a while he started to reference it as mine and then one day i asked why and he said because it belonged to me, not him. i have 48 inch belly mower, snow plow, snow blower, brinly plow and carry all.


pulling my homemade trailer


my 71 1614, there was guy who moved and he sold this tractor to another guy who sold it to another guy.(my family knew them all) the last guy had it on craigslist for a long time and i emailed him in august about it then he stopped by my house and told me i could have it... for free! put a new coil on it and it ran perfect. i use it all the time and it earns its keep. i have no attachments for it but i do have the brackets and mule drive to mount a belly mower.

this is when i first got it

I know there are more power king owners then this. Post pics of your power king, jim dandy, county squire, or anything else! It doesn't have to painted up pretty and glamorus, it can be over grown by grass and weeds with a tree limb going throught the engine block... post your pics!

It was 1st in both transmissions, I have not compared that to R & R over a distance with a timer...... interesting question, a big part of it though is how low you can get your idle. I won over the JD behind me in the pic as he stalled his trying to throttle it down too far.

I am wondering if this tractor is a Power King or not. There have been some changes done to it. It has a two cylinder Wisconsin engine. It has a 3 speed trans.

I bought the 1970 Economy that way. the local colleage was bumb enough that they added to the frame so they can install an Internaional mowing deck. As for the other tractor the propane tank was turned into the gas tank. On the back there is a pto shaft coming from the cluch housing which the pto is belt driving a generator.

it would have been easier to buy a deck made to fit that tractor. you could cut all that out reweld it and make it original again, it really wouldn't be that hard to do. did you get the deck with it at least? i think these tractors could have been a little longer anyway.

I did get the deck for the tractor when I bought it. The only trouble was that the deck gear box gears were slipping and might of destroyded the gears enough that I will have to use another gear box. I have a gear box from a Toro mower that might work. Other wise the Economy makes a good yard tractor for moving items around or doing farm work. (see pics in my gallery)
