Very cool video. Thanks for sharing. I really like those EK's and GK's.

BTW, Brian...  Did they only make the square back blowers for the EK's or can you put a round back blower on there?  I know the hitch mounts are totally different from the EK to a tube frame, but I wasn't sure if you could swap mounts from an EK onto a tube frame blower and get it to work?  Or did Bolens make specific attachments that only worked for the EK's?  How hard is it to find attachments for the EK's?  When I do a search on eBay for anything EK-related though, I can usually only come up with some manual reprints and some sales brochures.  I very rarely see anything of any value on there, which is kinda disappointing...

 

Attachments for the Ek's generally dont come up for sale too often except for the decks which there seem to be plenty of.

Since the EK's were made before the "Round back" blowers were produced the only option you have is the square back which seems to work better on the EK's than the tube frame ones.

 

The other attachments can be found but it may take a while for them to circulate on places like ebay/ craigslist.

 

Attachments available were

 

-38'' Grader blade

-32'',38,,42'' Deck

-32'' Reel Mower

-32''' Snow Caster

-Thatcher

-Winter cab (Soft)

- Lawn Roller & Pull behind Cart

-Spring assist Kit (Have yet to see one on a tractor)

-Rear Counterweight

-Tire Chains

Yeah, IDK about a mid-mount but I was definitely not thinking of that when I saw "Grader Blade".  But, I guess that's what Bolens called it.  I would have thought it was just a snow blade myself...
