Hey guys! It has been a long time since I have been active on this site (since April, probably) and I have primarily been on the Bolens section of this site due to my 850 and EK-10 tractors, but I do also have a nice old Ariens Sno-Thro that I use in the winter as well. It is a 10M5 model from 1968 or 1969. I know that Ariens made other attachments for these besides just the snow blower, but that is primarily the only attachment that I see on these tractors.
However, I did come across this neat looking attachment for my Ariens on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/400549628582
It is a lawn and leaf vacuum attachment for the Ariens walk-behind tractors. It does seem to be missing some parts though, even if it is just the bag. Does anyone have any more information on these or have seen one before in operation? I'd like to figure out how to get it to work as it seems like a pretty neat attachment for my Ariens and a nice addition to my collection. Also, was a little over $100 a decent price for something like this or did I overpay a bit? I was just excited since I've never seen anything like this and it seems like it could be one of the more rare attachments for these tractors.
Thanks in advance!
