Mph Not sure I know what a Modle (Model ?) G is. Please tell us/me more about it. Judging from the background in your picture, that must have been one great trip. It sure beats sitting at traffic light after traffic light here on the East coast of the lower 48. Ben

Ben, you can find a pic on here of a Model G by doing a search. They are a rear engine veggie farm tractor. think the post was about last March. As far as this "Gods" country I live in, yea, when I start feelin stupid for livin where it can be 70 below zero I take a Trip to Anchorage,any city USA, wait 4 or 5 color changes to get past a red lite then I happly come home and split another cord of wood for my barrel stove. heres a pic I took on a boat ride I took my daughters on while they were up here...Gods Country..A smallllll piece of prince Williams sound, just one cove.MPH http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1642272&a=12566022&p=53675014

MPH, God's country is Tennessee in the mountains where it does not get to -70° F below. My last winter in Michigan many years ago when it got to -30° below was enough for me. Nevertheless, Alaska is beautiful. Cheers, Roy

Roy, You knew I would agree with you -- I've visited Alaska and lived all over the US, but nothing matches the four gentle seasons of the Southern Appalachians.... Here's a cute Smokies picture for you... note the sign. BTW, my brother saw a cow elk down in the foothills of the Chilhowee Mtn last week, in Sevier County....

took the long way to Anchorage last thur and looked up member Bruce's 720 find sitting in the rain forest of the talkettna mts, shame it is sitting out for going on 3 years. Also saw a duetz 1930 in Palmer and another 720 with 60in deck, neither buyable. Same guy has a modle G with hydro lift that can leave the property for 3500 bucks. just over 1000miles but was a good trip..MPH http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=1642272&a=12566022&p=53654288

Hey Martin, whats the coldest temp. you've managed to get that old Briggs started? Does someone market a block heater for small engines or do we re-engineer an automotive type to suit our needs? Far as winter weather is concerned, on this mountain top it usually snows "horizontal" with all the wind we get. 24 below zero was coldest day last year, thankfully warmed up next day. I'm 1 yr. ahead on the wood pile, hope to keep it that way. Dick

I used a 11 buck heater for my simplicity 700 and just popped it on the side of the engine since it was magnetic, worked great, started better, and was easy to use, it usually started up when cold, I think it started right up at -15 below no prob, but it was a challenge to keep running, using the block heater in the situation and it started right up and stayed running no prob, good luck,-BradW

When I had the engine off the 112 I put a glue-on oil pan heater on the bottom, get them from NAPA up here, had to add one washer to each bolt for clearance. think its 100 watt, an hr of that pluged in it starts like summer and intant oil flowin at 35 below. that was cold enough that blowin snow wasn"t "fun" anymore. My wood pile is stacked close enough to the wood shute its hauling involved, so snow removal is all the winter use they get. Any snow after 40 below is ice crystal and so lite you can just sneeze twice and its gone*****MPH

MPH, The loader on that 720 is an Ark 700. Ark and Danco are the only two manufacturers I know of that made loaders for these large frame Simplicity's and AC's - although some models from other mfg'ers have been adapted to fit. Jeff

Jeff, There was one more manufacturer of loaders that fit these tractors. I think it was called a "Work Horse" loader. I've only seen one pic of a AC720 with one on it. Paul

Paul, Unless I'm mistaken, Johnson made the WorkHorse line of loaders. I know that a lot of them for the smaller Cub Cadet, Gravely and Wheelhorse ones were Johnson WorkHorses... I know a guy that has two -- I keep trying to get him to sell me one... Kent

I noticed that club member Mike Schosboek has a Johnson Workhorse mounted on his 9020. I don't think these loaders were specifically designed for the PowerMax, but apparently can be easily adapted to fit. I like the nice low profile of the Workhorse loader.
