Been looking for some time for a 2 stage blower and just don't see them close enough. Found this one over in indiana around five hours away. It is missing the lift kit but will be easy to make. And the guy even met me half way to pick it up. If anyone has one i could use the measurments and six of tube for the lift kit to make one.m 006.JPG m 009.JPG

Bob, I'm not into Bolens so I don't have a mount to measure for you. Just wondering what's under the cover where the 2 black wires/lines go. Is the chute electrically or hydraulically controlled? Nice blower and looks in good shape.

Bob,

What measurements do you need?

Ones from a Bolens snowcaster?

That looks like a real beast Bob! Glad that you finally found what you were looking for! Be careful snowblowing over the gravel though LOL.

Bob, glad to see you found your blower. Bet you'll be able to hit the neighbor's house with it if you try.

Good luck on getting it mounted up.

Bob, I'm not into Bolens so I don't have a mount to measure for you. Just wondering what's under the cover where the 2 black wires/lines go. Is the chute electrically or hydraulically controlled? Nice blower and looks in good shape.

That is where the hydraulic cylinder is mounted for the chute.

Congrats Bob!
Are you planning on using it this winter?

Yes i will be using this one.

Bob,

What measurements do you need?

Yes buzz need the lift arm measurment from another blower but it needs to be a 2 stage one.
