I just picked this Ranch King up. Drove 2hrs there to get and 2hrs back. The seller wanted $100 for it. When I handed him 5- 20s he handed me 1 back and said he would like to help pay for the gas since I drove so far.馃榿 It is in really nice condition. Everything works fine, It didn't come with a deck or 3pt hardware. He said he bought it to haul horse manure out of the barns. I would like to find a deck. If any one has an extra lying around please reach out. I have a White GT2055 parts tractor if someone wants to barter parts for deck. I am not even sure of the size of the deck that's

Nice nab! You might want to put up a notice in the For Sale Wanted to Buy forum that you are looking for a deck for it. Nice of the guy to help with the gas, you run into decent folks all around.

I had one very similar to yours back in the early to mid 90's. It had a 44" deck. The valve seats dropped on the B&S engine after a few years use, but it was a great tractor until then. I have one picture of it I can upload when I find it.

I would like to see them, I have a couple of White GT 2055's one is like new, the other is a part tractor, with 60'' and 55'' decks. The part tractors 55'' deck was so rusted out I pulled everything off the deck and sent it to be a new wash machine.I want the white to be for my garden chores and use the Ranch King for my mowing. Thanks

OP: Looks a heck of a lot like my 1995 Yardman 999. Made by KW Manufacturing, or Kwik-way, for MTD. Mine uses a 50" deck.

BTW, I do have a spare deck, but have been using for parts. Has the old-style spindles, but thinking I can convert it to the new, modular style spindles some day when the replacement deck, that I bought new in ~2000 via TSC, rusts out.

I may sell it and use the proceeds to freshen up my 20hp Vanguard in my White GT2055, I have 3-20hp 2-18hp all Magnum horizontals and 1-20hp Onan Craftsman GT6000's that I can use to mow.

Similar in sheet metal only, The Sticker on the side of mine just says 18 HP above the word HYDRAULIC, It has a 2 speed axle, 3pt hitch, and deck that are Hydraulic run, and that and mowing deck are shaft driven. the engine is B&S but it also has a different appearance. The rear tires are 27-9.5-15 and the fronts are 18-9.5-8. It is the exact machine as my White GT2055 except the White has a 20hp B&S Vanguard V-twin. Thanks for the picture.

Yeah, mine was a pretty cheap model that's for sure. :)
