1990 Snapper 20hp Tractor. Equipped with belly mower, drag and cutting blade, and front end loader. Everything works with hydralics and was serviced last month. Excellent for small projects.

I thought Power King supplied those for Snapper.

 

Found it:

 

Snapper sold their Lawn and garden division to Power king or Mission MFG their parent company in 1984 or 85. Same year International Harvester went under to Case.

It looks like a nice machine. Almost looks like it's Super GT sized.

MAN! BUY That!!!!  I want one so bad and most are over-priced! Those are Power Kings from late 90's and are wonderful!  Many had Foot controls, not he lever in fender. That is GOOD price too. BUT, don't expect Snapper to help with parts and issues. They mostly don't know about these offerings or denie PK made or don't wanna help at all. This is what I have found around on web. Many Snapper dealers never knew of them.  Only lasted a couple years, then PK crashed. One of many times it was changing hands all over country and never really got off to start again. That is good price, I want it! Go buy that for me and UPS it up here! Man, I'm feeling low now......depression setting in....gonna cry.........so far away....... Hey!  Buy that and bring it up and I'll trade ALL my tractors and even one big MM for  it! 

 

GL's Wife here!  You can have it all except the Purple Pony and bring nothing up with you. But can't have Golf Cart either.

 

P.S.  Wife made me put that on here, really!  I'm outta here now, depression setting in!

Just a note: PK was owned by Service parts int or close and even Yazoo Keyes around that time. Service I think tried to make it come back and did these tractors. Yazoo bought rights just to get some gadget rights, they never even made any and only sold parts. Service still sells parts but sold them to Mission and all the rights got to Mission but they don't manufacture anything. Service now buys there parts thru Mission. It's quite confusing in the 90's for PK. Note this tractor has a 3pc hood, top and two sides and much better quality than the 85 and up PK's had. The bad driveline in the manuals kinda wrecked reputation of them. Hydros were much better, but too late. AND, one like this one in ad would be $15,000 with loader, and you could by better CUT for about same money.
