Does anyone know where I can find an FEL for my 1616 or at least know the model number for an FEL that will fit? Thanks

First of all, welcome to GTtalk! I don't know the numbers but I will try to find something for you if you would like. A lot of people use rebuilt, I guess they are like 'kit loaders' and just adapt them to fit onto the tractor they want. That would probably be cheaper then trying to find an original PK fel. Make sure to post some pics!

Welcome Chase. I have no proof, but I've read some folks have used cub cadet FEL on their PKs.

I could not come up with any numbers but there is a fel manual in the power king manual section if you want to give that a look over.

Thanks guys. I found a couple of cub cadet FELs that might fit and there is a lot of good stuff in the manuals on here.

There ARE PK units out there for sale. If willing to make your own, PF (something) is on web and offers plans for many diff GT's. I think they even show someone in pix on site that made one for his PK. They have an ad in LACT, if you find that mag. Also Cadplans.com has plans offered, you would have to adapt. Just as a side note, I once had the early PK loader on my 2414 and nevr really liked it. Steering is real hard, and once I stuck wheel into groove in ground and it pulled way to right real fast, wheel pulled from my hands and bent up steer linkage. These small units just don't have the ease to use like modern all hydro tractors offer. Braking, shifting, hard steering, etc. I won't have another. Most people seem to overwork them and they break!

Welcome to GTtalk glgrumpy ,your correct about the PK with the loaders , the po on mine lowered the front axle and shorten the spindles guessing they bent on him. Maybe with Chase using it on a 1616 he won't have the spindle problem . Al 0403091750.jpg

Here's a few pics of how the loader is mounted on mine , the rectangle tubing used for the uprights is 2x5 which also is the hyd fluid reservoir 28 between the insides . There are mounting tabs to locate it right behind the quick mount . Along the length of the frame is solid bar stock 27" long using square plates to clamp around the frame . The loader arms are also 2x5 . Might help you if you find a used one to adapt or build one for it . AlP1280410.jpg
