If you go to the Bolens section there should be manuals for each piece of equipment you have....

Ya know that's what is so great about this forum,  In no time at all there is a lot of help from someone.

Many thanks for the links to the manuals it shows me what's missing from the mower deck and the snow blower springs.

Looks to be in good shape minus the hideous red paint job.

 

 

Good looking machine (except for the color). Good price to IMO.

 

What if the deck was red instead of the tractor? Is that acceptable? :D :angel:

The snowblower lift assist springs are the same springs used on the snow/dirt plows I believe. I'll measure the ones I have later and let you know for sure.

I can see in this pic that you've got the spring brackets on the tractor already. The springs go from there to the U shape welded on the snowblower arms. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1366635540.464737.jpg

Bolens built the 2087-02 from 1974 to 1976. I say yours is a 74 or 75.

Really? I thought most class zero implements where sears? I thought they were mostly made by brinly? What should I be looking for?

Joe

 

Joe, Sears attachments are a CAT-Sub-0 class, Brinly makes all their attachments in CAT 0 class. there is a big difference between the two if you get them side by side.

Arti, I think you did well. :thumbs: 

 

I'm like you, most of mine don't run when I drag them in either. :(

:ditto:

 

Here are links to a Sears and a Brinly 3-pt plow on eBay so you can compare them:

Hey! I've got a Sears like that one! Price seems a bit high to me on it! But, I've been wrong before!
