No it's a funny story how I got it. Went to get a john deere 314 for some parts off of Craig's list and asked if he had any other gts. The boy said I got this old powerking that his dad was gonna scrap I offered 125 and it came home the following weekend, I have wanted 1 for years . So this weekend I'll try to get it running.

Just picked up this Snapper/Power King MGT2200H.

60" Deck
46" SnowBlower

Also just received a new 3pt hitch setup from Mission...so now we're looking for more 3pt attachments and possibly a front end loader sometime in the future too.

Here's our new 3pt from mission.

Also picked up 4 ag tires and wheels from Craigslist tonight. The bolt pattern, center hole and offset seem to even be correct. They were on a hay bine:

I bought front wheels for a Deere when I replaced the rears on a diff tractor with rusted out wheels from Calcium.  The snow tires on mine are way wider!  See if I can get a pix here?

Thanks!



I really like those fat tires on there glgrumpy!

The offset put the wheels in closer to the tractor. .which i feel improves the look.

They also lifted the tractor a couple inches.

Yesterday we picked up a Wheel Horse D18 with a 3pt and a Johnson front end loader!

I'm planning on adapting the Johnson loader onto the Snapper-King.

PK had loaders.  I would find info on one of those and make sure you sort of copy the mounting frame from one of the parts pictures or whatever to mount to your tractor. I'm sure the Horse is much different on that lower cross mount. Hope that is wide enough! PK is pretty big tractor.  You should get that thumb-drive from Larry Goss for the $10 is a huge bargain. It has sections for these newer tractors too. Not sure if the latest loader is in that, have to look. I'm not sure if they had a seperate pump on these new guys or ran off the  drive-line?  I know there is a splined shaft sticking out the front of the pump under the plastic fender area, not sure if any use tho, as it would maybe only spin same as drive end and when driving?  Might look there. OR, sure you could tee into the outlets for hydraulics on tractor too. The uprights on frame might be the oil tanks?  That is how they are on PK loaders. I'll be keeping eye on your postings if you get into this.

1979 Economy Power King 1618.  Engine was rebuilt, seat was replaced once, the carb is newer and I just recently replaced the PTO clutch pull knob and the hood latches, but otherwise completely original.  I'm the 2nd owner.

 

For attachments I have the original snowblower with the updated hitch design, the rototiller, the belly mower you see in the pics.  I hope to add a rear blade and possibly a FEL though I may opt for a 2nd tractor for dedicated FEL work.  I plan on replacing the seat as well.

Thanks grumpy.

This Johnson loader has what looks to be a newer styled hyd pump on it (to me anyways)....with a love-joy type coupling on it and I figure that I can just attach and/or adapt it to the front pto shaft of the Snapper-King ...maybe.

It's 35" between the uprights. ..the lower angled mounts that go from 2/3rd up on the uprights. ..towards the front of the frame...I figure I can modify the end brackets on those of I have any issues with fitment/clearances.

I figure I may have to lower all of the mounting bracketry...a bit. ..to compensate for the additional height of the Snapper-King compared to the D-18 Wheel Horse.

I'm still researching the Johnson loader to see what I've got. ..it has the 36" manure/hay type bucket with the 18" wider...12" deeper add on bucket/ extension thingy..lol. it gives it a total depth of around 19" at the bottom/center 36" wide area. That makes it 54" wide overall. ..with the extension added/installed onto it.

The left side upright is indeed the hydraulic tank/reservoir. It looks to have mostly all new hyd hoses installed already, but I do have a few seeping/leaking cylinder seals and elbows.

I'll probably go thru it all before installing onto the Snapper-King.

I once had a D-18, first year of that tractor. Never liked the darn thing. Was big and heavy and didn't turn worth a hoot! Had blade on it and plowing snow was hard having to make little backing moves just to turn it around or a big turn.  Mine even had the "turning" brakes, which were supposed to help, but didn't in snow, just locked up the one side and no traction in snow to turn. Did go good with the weight it had. Didn't seem to be too popular when I had to sell it either.  ON that loader, think I would have to get diff bucket or make diff or something, that one looks rough and well-used.  Will spoil the modern look of the Snapper-King then, heh!

Got the loader off tonight...now I'll be starting on whipping it back into shape.

It worked good. ..just gonna fix a few seeping seals..probably some weak/cracked welds around three Pivot points/bracket (I haven't checked it over really closely yet).

There's several ugly coats of paint...etc.

The bucket isn't too bad...it's got some mud/dirt stuck in it & the top of the extension bucket is a bit bent up...but I can heat and/or beat that back into submission rather easily.

I might even make up my own heavier duty bucket and weld it up and add it to the arsenal as well.

I'm also planning on adding Some removable forklift style forKs to one of the bucket setups too...those would be handy. .I think!

Yeah forks! Think I like that idea, but not those clamp on ones. I think ones with quik-tach system, like skid loader would be neat. Maybe one of those plates o your loader, then bocket like that too? That would be modern way!

Yea...I just want to find some removable forks like the ones on a forklift. ..and make it so I can quickly adjust them from side to side just like you can do on a forklift.
