Wow! Sharp looking machine.
I've no idea what the market is. What I can say is if it was within 100 miles of here at $1500 or less I'd be hitching up my trailer instead of posting a reply.

Very nice , well kept machine ! Can't say what it's worth , tractors up here the north east always seem to bring more not sure in your area .

The worst part of those tractors is the fact it is the manual. They had much trouble with the clutch paks and tranny's on those. You can still get those parts new from Mission Manufacturing in Southern IN, but expensive. That IS one pretty machine. I have some hydros, but the plastics are broken up in many spots and yours look very nice. Does yours seem to slip or quit pulling when going up a hill or when pulling something with it? They may have had some of the issues fixed by that time, there were some changes made to the clutch discs to improve them and yours may have that?? 99' has to be pretty much last year they were offered or maybe is really older year, but still new when you got it. I see you have three point, does it have power steering? I would think in 15 to 1800 range at most being a manual, and also depending on what attachments would be with it also.

This one near me has been for sale for awhile: Detroit CraigsList. It's considerably older, but I don't know how much that affects value. It does have a tiller and wheel weights which I suppose adds a few hundred to the price.
The Speedex in my avatar has a hydraulic cat 0 and included a back blade but no mower. It's in decent shape but no where near as nice as yours. I think I got a pretty good deal on it last year at $650. He was asking $950 before he sold the mower separately.
I think a problem you're going to have is very few people (at least around here) have ever heard of a Power King. If it were a John Deere garden tractor I expect you could get $2500 or more. I think your typical Craigs List shopper will see it as an off brand large lawn tractor. If you want to move it quickly to those folks $1500 is probably about the limit. If you're willing to wait for a buyer who appreciates the 3pt. to come along you could probably get 3-500 more. I don't think the guy who wants to rip and tear the garden will pony up much for the cosmetic condition you have. A collector wanting it to add to his stable might go even more - if you could find him.
This is all speculation on my part. I hope more people will weigh in with their thoughts.

Power king tractors in my area have a good following, 2 dealers in the area sold economy / powerking since the 1960s.... I may start the price at $2500.

Please post the serial number and advise if it has power steering or not. also is there only one.lift lever?
A lot of the newer PK's and Snapper's(same tractor, just labelled for Snapper) sat in warehouses for years before being sold.
Good luck with your sale

Can you post the serial number? This sticker should be on the left side frame rail(from the drivers seat position).
Thanks for the power steering answer.

Hello. Do you still have the tractor for sale. By the way, that is a redesigned body on your tractor and the 20HP engine in gear drive makes it even more rare. The 20HP Kohler engine was used mainly with the hydro tranny in these tractors. Never seen a power king set up like yours. Thanks for your time.
