I don't think that's a factory PK loader. It looks pretty light for that tractor.


No, that is a Johnson workhorse loader. Remember somebody from the other site named Ken? He had one on a PK from the 50s, the blue one. I am sure you remember it.

Good deal! I thought it looked a little light for PK too. Looks like it has the tank/controls like early PK one, yet arms and cylinders are smaller. The one in my avatar is what I mean for the early one. Later ones mounted diff and had oil in the uprights to make more compact. Still good deal on tractor even.

I too tried to call "John" and the number is not in service. Hmmmmmmm......any chance this could be too good to be true?

I have been trying to get a hold of him. When I call, my phone identifies the number in Attleboro Mass, which is the same area as it is listed in the ad, I would think that if it was a scam the ID would be some place else.

I wouldn't trust anyone named "John" from Ma :bigrofl: :bigrofl:

 

P.S. only a couple of towns from me, but I just returned from RI on another CL find today

sorry no GT pictures as it's work related but a great deal for me.

I did think of you when I first saw that ad and wondered if you might just be pulling a fast one on us! Seriously, I'm looking for an excuse to visit family in the area and what better way to justify seeing family but to take $600 out of savings and go buy a tractor. So, if you pass if along side the road give me a holler and I'll be down as quick as I can. I've been looking at several PK up here in ME but haven't yet found the right one. This rig's got what I'm looking for.....me and 1,200 other guys I'm sure.

I went to the ad listings, to see if the ad was reposted with another phone number. THIS is what I found when I searched power king... four people posted ads asking him to contact them so they could buy it for more then the asking price.
