Sweet man, way to put an old piece back to work.  I have the Wizard version, very capable of moving snow with a se of chains, and additional weight.

Those things were un-stoppable! 

 

We used to check the drives on Bolens walk-behinds for slippage by putting the blade against a masonry wall, and engaging the drive.

 

The wheels would break traction before the drive would slip or the engine would stall.

 

I used a Power-Ho to plow snow for several years, but the lack of reverse became a nuisance, and I up-graded to a tube-frame (1050).

That looks like fun! The push blade is one of the attachments I would really like to have. It would come in handy moving snow away from the sheds intead of shoveling.

 

Is that a 12BB or 12BA?  Thanks for the video  :thumbs:
