Value of a Power Max Loader??

Recommended Posts

If you don't have a Powermax or a buyer for a loader or parts, I would guess it is worth scrap iron. If you or a buyer have a Powermax and a few hundred yards of topsoil or gravel to move, I'll bet it would be worth a small fortune.8D

I paid $1250 for an ARK 600 loader for a Powermax. It was in good shape and had a set of forks in addition to the bucket. I considered it a bargain, an ARK 9000 loader would be worth a few hundred more in my opionion. I am talking loader only. John U

500/1500 depending on condition and need of the loader alone. System 9000 is the designation for that series of Simplicity. Several Simplicity's used the "System" designation. That loader looks like the 700 Ark loader.

I am looking at the one above on Craigslist . I dont really need it right now as I have worked for the same excavation firm for 30yrs and have access to lots of equipment, but may need it later. The loader is in good structural and mechanical condition. Needs a little cosmetic help but don't we all after 40+- years?:D, Thanks for the help, I have a pretty good idea what its worth to me now.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
