I just struck a deal to trade my 1920 Ultima with 48" deck, and my non running Gilson/Wards16 with front blade, for a 4041 with factory rollover cage with roof, and high lift front end loader and, the original color is industrial yellow. It has three range hydro, 19.5 Onan with receipts for recent rebuild of motor and carb, new muffler. Three point hitch is missing lower arms and link. Ugly paint, and seat isn't too good, but it all works well. I'm supposed to pick it up Saturday morning.

Never heard of an Industrial version but not very knowledgeable on the Power Max tractors.

I don't know that is an industrial, but indications point that way. It could be something someone went to a lot of trouble to do. But I can't find anything but yellow everywhere I look.

That's a interesting rig, I like that hi-lift loader, I will definitely want to see some more pictures of it when you get it. I'd like to know how high it lifts and how stable it is when it's full lift height

Now that is different.  Wierd how loader mounts up on that high cage. Wonder if that makes it hard to see around when working? Sure looks heavy built, seems odd it didn't have bigger engine or small deisel in it.  Maybe it's kind of a Terra-Mite type tractor for rental places and such?? Big wheels on back too. Yep, more pictures!

The loader comes off with 6 pins and hose disconnects. I've never seen a super garden tractor with a cage setup like that. The whole thing is unusual for its size.

Brought it home today, definitely an industrial model. Has a government plate in front of the dash, when it gets below 97° or so I'll go take some more pics and write down or take a pic of that plate.  It needs a good bath and a lot of service type work, but it all functions. It was purpose built as a loader. The three point and bucket roll share a remote with separate valves to turn on/off either. There are a bunch of other strange features I'm trying to figure out. Never had a hydro with 3 ranges and a foot clutch before! A lot to figure out on this one. More later when it cools off some.

Got some more pics and found it it's a USMC tractor.

That is very interesting. I wonder if it had some type of forks instead of a bucket at one point? I'm going to guesd that it was designed and built for a very specific purpose

I forgot to take a pic with it all the way up, but you could easily dump over the sides of a dump/ farm truck. I changed the hydro filter and replaced the lost fluid with Lucas Hydraulic fluid booster. PO had just changed the fluid, but it appeared to be the original filter. Worked way better. I went out and pushed over and moved several stumps today.
