Hi all since winter is coming I decided to work on installing a snowblower on the 1973 Power King, its a 42" Haban that a fellow installed a 10 HP Tecumseh Snow King engine on and fabricated a mount to use it on his 4 wheeler, he said it worked but found a really nice 26 HP Simplicity with a 48" blower and cab so I got it for $75.00 didn't get around to doing anything with it last fall/winter so I figured now was time. I shortened the hitch mount and fabricated some rear hitch mounts and welded them to the hitch assy I'm temporarily using the front hitch parts from one of my PK dozer / snow blades. Got it hitched up to give the lift a try and it works good and without fine tuning it will lift 6" that was yesterday didn't get a lot done today other than removing the carb ( its a Tecumseh and has sat for 18 months so it needs a cleaning) and cleaned it didn't get it completely reinstalled but it should work iit is heavy and you can tell that in the steering so will be putting the wt box on the rear of the tractor when using it.

Hi all, worked on fabricating a hitch lift assembly for the PK / snowblower got most of it done will paint tomorrow just have the 2 tie links to fabricate, am waiting for some 1.5"X1/4" x 13" flat stock to make them out of.  Well the carb cleaning helped but the Tecumseh would not run as smooth as it should and would not idle, I had a new aftermarket carb so installed it and the engine started and ran like it was new idles down so now it to change oil and it will be ready.

Hi all, the installation of the Haban snowblower on the PK 1614 is for the most part complete finished up installing it on the tractor this afternoon changed oil on the blower engine started it and run the tractor outside the lift works very good have 8.5 inches lift drove the tractor around with the blower up and down and its going to work as intended. Now I need to think about fabricating a cab for the tractor.

Nice job :thumbs:  Kind of amazing that you can lift that snow blower with just that one rod or am I missing something ?  Thinking of the weight , if you have welded 2 piece front hubs check that welds , I had one fail while using mine with the loader . Can't wait for some tests runs in the snow

Looks good on there! Have fun! If not a cab, maybe at least one of these:

Hi Alc, it actually lifts very well the rod is 3/4" and is the same as used for the dozer blade and the snowblower that is the about the same unit as this one but without the engine, also I added wt to the drawbar for traction assist and it also has the benefit of counter balancing the blower as the wt goes down as the blower raises and vise versa

Hi all, today I started work on a cab for the PK will be using the encloser from a Sears cab and am building the frame using PVC 1" tubing. The PVC is easy to work with is strong I used it on a cab for one of the Sears Suburbans and it has worked good, just got a start on it this afternoon.

Only thing I would be concerned with on the PVC is it cracking from the vibrations. Hope it works well for you!

Maybe Schedule 80 would be better, thicker wall.

Hi Kenny used it on my Suburban for 3 / 4 yrs at temps of 0*F and no problems the 1" is really tuff stuff, not sure  schedule it is I'll have a look but the wall thickness is about 3/16's" I'm going to use the encloser from the Suburban cab for the PK
