In addition to my 78 2414, I just obtained a 2418. According to the serial number it is a 1983. I did not know they made the steel ones that late. It runs great but tin is a little rough. I notice the lift cylinder is in a different location than on my 2414, and of course the hood is different for the bigger engine. I was thinking of using it to plow snow but don't think the plow from my '14 will work due to the different cylinder location. Not sure what I am going to do with it yet, but having TWO of these fine machines in the garage takes the sting out of my 64 Ford sitting outside for the time being. Oh well, I heard this would happen. Buy one, then before you know it there's another...........sort of like stray cats.

84 was the last year for steel bodys. i dont know if you can use the plow with the different lift or not but if you really wanted to you could most likely make an adapter. enjoy your tractor and post some pics!

Thanks. I'll get some pics of both of them as soon as I have the time to do so. The 2418 has the single trans while my '14 has the twin. I've dragged logs out of the woods with the '14 that probably weighed a half ton or better. Buying a Power King was some of the best money I ever spent.

I have an 83 that I use an older plow on. The only difference is where the push rod mounts on the tractor end. You'll find that you won't get much height but if you play around with it, you'll get it to lift higher. Plow away.

they would move half ton without any problems. i pulled this with mine. the angle doesn't do the log any justice, for some reason it looks small in diameter but my 18in chainsaw was about 4-5 inches too short so i had to make a few cuts.
