First Powermax

Recommended Posts

richp
I finally got a 4040 powermax. These things are rare in my area and I couldn't be too picky. Probably paid too much, $1600 but I don't care, I got one. It needs some carb work, but other than that it is in good shape. It came with a 60" deck that is still in my truck. Also came with manual's, filters, belts and some front tires.

I was always primarily a Massey guy, but I now have the 416 Allis & other makes, so I'm just a "tractor guy" now I suppose. BUT one thing's for sure....I'd love to have a Powermax!!!! Those things have always caught my eye! Extremely rare in Ky or my area of it at least. If you're satisfied, then the price was right! That's always how I look at it. That's one NICE tractor! :D

It's wierd how scarce these are around here (CT). Some people seem to find them easy, but I have been around simp's my whole life and this is the first one I have seen in person. BTW, those pictures of your Massey convince me to cross brands some day.

I live not far in MA and I have never seen a 4040 in person. The closest I have seen evidence of one existing in the state was one I saw in the background of a picture of a Bolens for sale on craigslist (should have emailed and asked about it). I think think the tractor is a super "keeper" and the price is excellent, especially if it didn't cost a lot to get it home. The cost of time, fuel and lodging to pick one up at any great distance adds up real fast.

      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 
      Paul
