This one is an EK7 with snowcaster, rear weight and chains.  :D :D :D

 

From the pics it looks like a pretty nice one.  Has the wrong paint, but everything looks to be real straight.

 

Probably won't pick it up until sometime next week.  It's in Willard, OH which is only about 1 hr from me.

We have a one deer per season bag limit. Don't you have a bag limit on Bolens? Congrats. BTW hunting tractors is more fun than deer.

Well, I think that this is pretty much all I can get for a while...unless an HT22 happens to pop up.

 

I've been wanting an EK for awhile but never saw one close enough, and at the right price.  This looks like a decent one.  I guess I'll have to keep an eye out for a deck for it.

Congrats! That is a nice looking machine too. I almost bid on it but it would have cost a lot to ship it from Ohio. I would say you paid a great price even :thumbs:

You certainly have been having good luck finding Bolens gear lately.  Your collection must be looking pretty good these days.

Awe man you guys are Killing me here.I keep missing the good stuff.Just missed an old EK10 and a HT20 a couple weeks ago.Could of had them for scrap price but the scrap yards new employee ran them threw the crusher.

Well, sounds like he won't be a new employee for long if he keeps that up.  He'll just be an EX...

 

Sometimes it is a real shame what people throw away and I'm surprised more people that own or work at scrap yards don't come home with tons of projects to work on.  I know I would if I came across some of the decent stuff people pitch without thinking about it, lol...  :(
