Tractor Identification

Recommended Posts

Hi to all in the group, first off I appologise to any one who finds this topic already fully explored. My problem is trying to determine the year and model number for my Powermax tractor. I will assume nothing for now and provide the details that can be collected from the name plates. On the manufactures plate for the tractor I can just make out the numbers 920 1004 (note that there is a gap as indicated between the numbers. Whether there is a some numbers missing or that cannot be read is not clear. The engine model/Spec number is a CCKB-MS/2420H, the serial number is 0772440285. Now I've been through the site many times searching for information that will let me make sense of the info I have, but to no avail. Following a thread to my previous question about front axles I believe it could be a 4041 or an early 9020. Perhaps someone can help. By the way I live in Somerset, England so not sure if export tractors would have used different numbering system? regards to all Nigel

Hi Nigel, Your tractor is a 4041 Pow'r Max. The MFG number is 990920 and the Serial number is 1004. The only way I know to get close to dating the tractor is to use the serial number from the engine if it is original to the tractor. I believe your engine was manufactured in July of 1972 (first four numbers of engine serial no.) so I would guess that the tractor was manufactured in 1972 or 1973.

According to the engine type number furnished, the tractor that used them were, Series MY MFG # 4041 - 1973 - 990954 4041 - 1973 - 990953 Pow'r Max- 1974 - 990953 Pow'r Max- 1974 - 990954 Model years could start at least 6 months prior to caledar years so the new year showing would coincide with the calendar year.

I missed the part about you being a new member, Nigel. Welcome. And we'll try to remember that you're a bit too far to be driving over here to pick up parts. (we had that issue/mistake with a member in Sweden as I recall). You're going to love this tractor. What work does it do for you? -Don

      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
