    does the cub have hyds?

    I second this. The Cub is MUCH closer to a tracter where the PK is more like a lawn mower.

    I have 2 Cubs and many of the attachments.. My vote would be for the Cub over the PK, but I love my Ford 4WD 1715 with a FEL...

    I'd go with the cub. It's a long love affair.

    The cub does not have hydraulics. The cub and two pks have mowers and attachments.
    Are you sure the Cub does not have hydraulics? I see the rod to operate the rear rockshaft but no hand lever to operate it. That indicates it does have hydraulics. The front rockshaft would be near the current battery location and would be attached to the lift chains for the mower deck. The operating lever is next to the throttle.

    Additionally, the Cub engine was built from 1947 thru 1979 or so, as were many of the other components. Probably explains why there are so many parts available.....

    Properly maintained, there is good reason to believe you could pass on the Cub to a grandchild.

    If it were me I'd go for the Cub too.

    I did look over a Power King at a small tractor show just last weekend, interesting lil tractor. But I still would take the cub.

    I also think that Cub has hydraulics, another plus for the Cub.
