Think this is 6th year for PK Re-union in Wisconsin, Dodge County.  It is on this week-end. Lots of pix on the Yahoo forum for PK.  They have a shed there now and claim it as Power King World Headquarters!  Couple of Pullers there and one has some really big odd engine in it. Can't see details in pix, but I asked what it was and such, haven't heard yet.  Would be neat to get some pix on here. I know one is member here, maybe I can talk him (her) into posting them here too. Anyone else from here up there?

Wife and I were where Yesterday. Not sure on the count but was a good turnout as usual. We had on display our 1954 and 1955 Red-E. I took several pictures of garden tractors including the Economy Power King Display which I will post in the next few days.

Your Indiana neighbor who offers you an endless supply of tractors was at the show.

Hey Grumpy<

 

Just got back from the "Reunion" show. 9 hr trip from the house! I had committed to take a tractor I had sold to a buyer at the show.

Took 2 of my own, Last week I was contacted about picking up a tractor just  40 mi South of the show, so came back with a full trailer.

It was a great show. They had a total of 50 EPCO built tractors there, including 3 1946's.

 

Chuck

Yeah Chuck, darn things keep jumping on the trailers when you go by, don't they?  They refuse to get off, so you just mosey on with them in tow!  Don't know the diplimatic way to get them to stay off!

Both PK pullers were running modified Generac engines, the army one "Pvt. Pyle" said he was running between 45 and 50 hp. Surprisingly the other one out pulled him by about 10 feet if I remember right.

My 3 year old daughter Lydia and I brought our 51 and 52 down on Friday. We really enjoyed meeting folks and drooling over tractors and just wish we had more time to enjoy but had a great few hours there.
