Hello Folks! I just won a 1980 Power King 1616 at a tractor show last weekend here in PA. It was the grand prize at Tuscarora Valley Heritage Days. At first I thought, what in the heck am I going to do with this! But after having it a week, I absolutely love this little tractor. It has a winch on the front and a 3 point hitch on the back. I have found a guy that says he has a mower deck for it. I am going to look at it tomorrow. After doing some research on this site, it looks like I might need some sort of attachment or mule to install the deck. Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated. When I look at the deck, I'll see if I can get some pics and some numbers from it.
So far we have pulled numerous stumps, hauled firewood and raked our yard with our lawn sweeper. This tractor is so fun to operate and looks pretty easy to work on. I have been so obsessed with learning about this tractor all week, that I'm not getting much done at work!!! (Don't tell my boss)
If there is anything you might be able to tell me about with this tractor, I'd love to hear about it!!
Thanks

Hi jeffroz1, you have a very nice tractor and as you have noted will like it they are great tractor and can really get the job done. For your tractor you will want the newer stamped deck type deck and yes you will need a hitch (mule drive) there are 2 types, the standard hitch and the parallel hitch, as for which is better that's a personal choice. Here's some pictures of the newer type deck (model 81) 1st 2 are of standard hitch 3rd is a parallel hitch and also a deck manual.

Thanks guys! Looking forward to putting this to use! MNGB thanks for the info, I'll check that out tomorrow. I'm not sure if he has the mule (hitch)or not.
I hope you guys don't mind, but I may have some more questions! This looks like an active forum, so I look forward to other topics and great information.

Cool! 16 is odder engine size for that new of one. Looks like a Briggs then with that carb and cleaner sticking out hood? Most had 14 or even 18hp Kohlers, the 18 being OHV and trouble. Nice!

It is a Briggs motor and it purrs like a kitten! It has a chain hanging off of the PTO clutch, is there a reason for this?

Hi the chain should have a snap on the end that goes into a small hole on the left bottom of the hood it keeps the clutch from turning when the PTO is engaged.

Those  B&S 16 hp engines are great engines lots of power and they like gas and run nice

It is refreshing to see someone join here with a free tractor and actually be using it and working on it, not just asking about a high price for a quick flip.  Thanks for posting!

So, today I picked up this 48" mower deck and the mule that goes with it. This thing looks almost new. Not one crack in it and blades are even sharp! $50.00 I think it's quite a bargain. Now I need to figure out how in the heck this thing gets mounted. I'm going to do some research on here and hopefully figure it outIMG_0006.JPG IMG_0007.JPG IMG_0008.JPG

Hi Jeff, that's a good deal on a deck that is the older style deck (1973 or 74 and older) it was for the manual clutch engagement before they started using the electric PTO clutch but it can be used with the electric PTO, you may need a different drive belt. I'll attach a manual for the deck, Those decks mower good but since there are no air dams around the blades they don't throw the grass out as far as the newer one but still do a good job mowing, and it is in good condition. You will have to make some modifications to the hitch to attach it to your tractor I'll attach a pic of mine so you can see the difference in the old attach to the newer hitch attact on your tractor.

MNGB thank you so much for that information. I have drawn a blank today on that hitch. Those manuals look to be what I need. I really appreciate it. I'm hoping to work on it again this week. The wife made me quit and get some stuff done around the house. Yes we did use the heck out of that tractor today hauling stuff!!!
