I'm not 100% sure, but the mount looks like it would fit on my XL series Bolens. It is yellow however which makes me think it's a little older and possibly for the EK or GK??

This is a snow plow for a Tubeframe

These are somewhat hard to find.
Bolens offered 2 different styles for their front blades in the 60's. These plows were designed specifically for snow removal.

Brian, would you know what the model number for that style plow is? .......The common style snow/grader blade for the tube-frames was #18532.

I don't recall ever seeing anything like that for the tube frames, so I thought it may be for a Lawn Keeper or small-frame 770 or 775, since the plows for them were also yellow. ....The plow for the 770/775 was #18003, but I don't have my manuals handy to check.

The standard Blades are not rare and are quite easy to find.

hmm... after taking a closer look it appears that some blades mounted on the small frame look similar to the one Jerome posted.
I'll have to do some further investigation on this.

I do know for a fact that early on Bolens did offer 2 different styles for their blades though.... I'm wondering if the plow and springs were the same on both series and they just changed the mounting brackets :confuse:

ah ha!

It indeed is for a small frame




-----------------------------------------
This is the only picture I could find showing the different snow blades for the tubeframes
It appears that the "snow blade" was shorter in height than the "grader blade"

I think I need by Doctors title taken away... Lately it seems I have been getting things wrong LOL :wallbanging::wallbanging:

The yellow could make you think GK, but the blade for those is very beefy, with lots of reinforcements on the back.
