Congrats!   I'm not a Bolens guy, but from your excitement, I take it these are a hard item to find.

Way to go. Congratulations on your latest addition to the Bolens collection. I only have Bolens tractors, but I am certainly not an expert on the brand. It does sound like you have a rare piece. I don't know if you two have met before, but that will be another plus. Some of our members have gone the extra mile to help others with purchases far from their homes.I know that you have to post pics.

Yeah, it's definitely a rare piece. Even more rare than the one for the tube frames.

 

It was made by EZ-Rake for Bolens. It's pretty much identical to the one I have for the tube frames.  The only difference is in the 'hitch'.

 

Here's a pic of the one he bought.

Congrats on the new EK attachment. Not having much of a use for it I decided to let it go.

I'm guessing no one bid because most probably have no idea what it went on or what it was .

Yeah, I was eyeing this one up myself too, but I couldn't afford to spend the money on it.  Otherwise, you might have seen a bidding war, lol!  Glad you picked it up though and hope it works out for you!  I'll just have to keep an eye out for another one at some other point for either my 850 or the Estate Keeper.  But for now, the important thing is just getting the Estate Keeper running first!

How does it attach to an EK?  I thought the mower decks and such mount to the outside of the front wheel hubs.
