That's a heck of a deal, Ron. Does the newer one have parts missing?

What's 'infamous' about the plastic king 4-speed?

No, it's all there and pretty straight.

Super week clutch systems that destroy the input shaft on the trans. This one feels smooth so it may be ok. It will be a few days before I play with this one. To many projects and I swore I was going to slow down this year. I have to go pick up my JD 300 next week.

I didn't realize the one in the truck was a Plastic King, you may want to keep a look out the window at driveway. The Police should be there anytime to pick you up for Grand Theft GT's. :poke: :rolling:

 

What a score you got. :thumbs:

You sure did well today.  Folks must have been looking for other stuff and not PK tractors.

Sweet. Nice PK. I think each rear tire would be worth what you paid for the whole thing.

I thought that was a good deal. Little did I know you'd out-do yourself in such little time. :thumbs:

The power king mower in the truck bed is a 1517 With the infamous plastic body 4 speed.

Very nice score.  I assume you meant 1217 for that plastic PK?  These will keep you busy for a while.  Hey, if you have a good clutch in that plastic PK, you could sell it for 5 times what you paid for the whole lot or more!.

That is just about the best deal I've heard of!  Auctions are so unpredictable, but mostly they end in disappointment.  Usually around here, the auctioneer has people out there to bid everyone up.  At my last auction I went to, they had one of the auction people's helpers start bidding me up on a twin bottom 16" plow.  I knew what he was doing, so I went beyond what I wanted to give, just so I could drop it on him.  He tried his best to get me to take it for my last bid, but I walked away!  Should have seen the look on his face!  Priceless!  :rolling:
