Well I've decided to pull the plug on a Jim Dandy I ran across a couple weeks ago. Not sure of the model# yet. I know it's a Kohler but not real sure of the hp. It has hydraulics and a fabricated snow plow on the front. Game plan is to set this up for my plow day tractor. What I need is pics of the 3pt set up that goes on the rear end of the tractor. Sorry I have no pics at this time.

Hi welcome to becoming a Jim Dandy owner, without knowing the SN / model year its impossible to know what if any 3 pt was used on the tractor, EPCO the parent co was constantly revising the tractors, I know from my research of the Power King line that 3 pts were first offered in 1976, before they they had a lift hitch basically a draw bar the lifted and implements were attached to the draw bar. A great product to have is Larry Goss's thumb drive it has over 30000 pages of information on the Economy - Jim Dandy - Power King tractor , implements attachments etc and he only charges $10.00 for it this includes shipping and the thumb drive, his address is

Day 2, where's pictures?  Jim Dandy's mostly had just draw-bar lift as noted. AND, many had higher speeds than the reg PK.  I think would be a little small for a plow tractor, or else a very small plow!  The later ones called 1612,  had a little bigger frame and took the later implements, would be better choice maybe to have things to fit it and work. Frames entirely diff than the early ones, which were just channel down middle.

Guess I'm not following you on being a little small to pull a plow. This thing is a tank. It has 24"ag tires on the rear. Geez my little 124 Cub would pull a 12" brinly moldboard with ease.

Hi if it has 24's on the rear I don't think its a Jim Dandy all I can find for JD is 16" rears.

Yep, no tires that big on JD.  Why we need pictures! Could also have 3pt hitch too then. Can you list a serial number off of it? Yes, the 24" will pull just fine, like the one in my Avatar!
