Up until now I've been almost exclusively green as for tractor color, changed that about a month ago!  I'd been watching for a Power King on CL for a while, a 2418 showed up about 80 miles away in mid-August.  Called the seller & set a time to look it over, price included the tractor, 4' mower deck, 4' front blade, 12" 3-pt Brinly plow & full set of wheel weights.  Looked it over & didn't even dicker on the $2,000 asking price!  Loaded everything up & headed home:   Tractors 2016 076.JPG  Tractors 2016 046.JPG

 

Since then, I've added a new seat Tractors 2016 062.JPG   & front tires,  Tractors 2016 055.JPG painted the bumper, wheels & front weights:   Tractors 2016 070.JPG

 

The plan is a cosmetic refurb this winter, overall, it's in good condition except for a dent in the hood that somebody tried to fix & failed!  Tractors 2016 072.JPGmay end up taking that to the local body shop for repairs as the sheet metal is stretched quite a bit.

Looks fun. Friday night I got to see a PK at a local tractor pull. He did better than a JD 430 and a 455. Maybe 40' farther. They sure are a workhorse.

NICE looking tractor. You need to paint the trailer to match it though.

Check with member username, I think he may have a nice hood.

Could I get a moderator to assess Lowell 2 points for not posting pictures earlier.  We can't have people "holding out' on new acquisitions!!!

 

'Course then we need to give him a free pass worth 4 points for buying something that wasn't green! :poke:  

 

Great tractor Lowell!!  :worshippy1:

Congratulations!  That's a nice looking beast.  Somewhere around a 1982 with 4 speed tranny I assume?  I had a 2414 like that.  Loved that tractor!  Now, a word to the wise.  You got the 18hp k361.  Nice smooth powerful engine BUT you need to keep the cooling fins clean.  Being under that box on top of the engine, they collect oil and debris and must be kept clean to keep that engine performing as its optimum.  Yes, they are strong machines.  I once witnessed a 12hp PK win a dead sled pull by pulling 2700 pounds.

1980, 3 speed!

 

I'll pull the engine this fall/winter for painting, engine tins will come off then.  It won't get used too hard!

Didn't post earlier because I wanted to see your reaction when you saw it yesterday!   :D  :D  :D

 

BTW, I did own a 1948 model "V" Avery at one time, 45+ years ago!

The top link that came with PK was too short, so I cut the ends off one I had & welded them into a piece of pipe.  This looks more like the original Power King top link.  Tractors 2016 121.JPG

 

Yesterday, I welded up & painted a step for PK, the 3/16" thick "washers" are for the back side of the frame for more strength:  Tractors 2016 119.JPG

 

Put the step on this morning:  Tractors 2016 122.JPG
