Hi all, new here but not new to tractors etc, I've wanted a Power King for a few years but didn't want to pay the asking price on them here in MN. So I got into Sears Suburbans have six of them now but the Power King was always in the back of my mind. Well this summer started looking again I knew a fellow that had one with no engine a 1614 and almost bought it a couple of yrs ago but when I went to look it over good one of the rear wheels was missing and he couldn't rember where it might be and he was holding out for $500.00 so I placed a wanted ad on CL and a fellow called and said he was thinking of sell his PK a 1618. He told me about it said it had a 3 pt blade duals a set of chains a 48" deck and a front end loader (right away I figured it was out of my price range) asked him what he wanted for it and he said he'd like $2000.00 we talked and I said it was more than I could spend he said well he'd take $1800..00, we visted some more and I asked if he could e mail me some pictures and he said he'd have his SIL send some. I kind of knew that was a mistake and he sent pics and of course I was hooked, called him and said I got the pics and the tractor looked good to me and offered him $1650.00 he said that he was going to stick to the $1800.00 so it was left at that, next morning he calls and said he would take $1700.00 and I'd have to do the battery (it needed one) sop we made a deal.
I had never heard of the Kohler K361 before and reseached it had some resevations but figure at the worst I'd repower and at best it would run for some time, turns out its a great running engine cylinder head was clean and the hourmeate reads 810 hr. Of course the is always lots of little things that a new owner wants a does and I've been doing them.
