9.  What a nice day -- for a stroll in the park! 10.  This is obviously Paul Kjorlie's  Pow'rMax with loader and the backhoe he built.  As for the tractor, it is a 1974 Simplicity 4041 that Paul purchased for $400 in 1999 as a parts tractor for his Simplicity 9020's.  It had a minor but expensive (to fix) engine flywheel problem.  Last winter he traded the mower
deck for the tractor for a second parts engine and thus got the tractor running.  He repainted the tractor, repainted the loader and transferred it from one of the 9020's and designed and built a backhoe for the tractor.

Specs on the backhoe are as follows:
@1700 PSI
Digging Depth: 5'-10"
Force at bucket: 2100#
Force from Dipper: 1200#
Swing Arc: 115 Deg.
Weight: 600#

11.  What a sharp puller!  According to Dennis McGill, this one belongs to  Clint McDonald and is actually a converted Montgomery Wards Squire -- he didn't like the color.   He brought this beauty all the way up from Vandalia, MO. 12 Close-up of Jeff Harm's beautiful 1959 Wonderboy 700.  Jeff identified the tractor, and sent in more info, plus this "Before Picture"  Jeff says: "I got started in this hobby by looking for a grill  for my Dad's 700 and they started following me home as in everyone else's case I am working on a 725 next and the attachments I have collected."
