Powermax question

Recommended Posts

Yeah, look over your shoulder for other buyerssm03General condition of fluids, tires, sheet metal, see if the hydro works, engine starts and runs clean, check the rear pto, if all that works you found a well cared for unit.

Check the information on 4040 Types (PowerMaxes) at the bottom of the page in the link below. "http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/articles/sam_used_check.htm Found it in Articles under the Resources tab. Thought there was a more extensive write up on Powermaxes but was unable to locate it. Hope this helps.

Make sure the front and rear clutches are working, and that the drive line to the rear PTO is still there along with the heat shields for the engine and under frame cover, all are needed for a cool engine....the 4041 should have a cckb onan in it, oil leaks from seals that kind of stuff, if it has been used the engine is prob covered in oil and grass

I checked it out the other day and I think I will pass. It is real clean and has fresh paint but the Onan needs carb work and all it has is a cutting deck. He would only go down to $1900. I think he overpaid for it because it has been in the paper for 2 months for $2200. As long as I have been a Simp fan, this is the first one I have seen. Not too many around here.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
