Went to pick up a new motor for my 1050 and while i was leaving he was like interested in a rake and blade for your bolens. I've only seen a few pics of these and settled on a price of 50 since it's missing the lift arm and some brackets.

Shouldnt be to hard as long as i can find originals to make a copy from and it looks like the tiller lift arm might work for when its rear mounted.

That's a really cool find. I'm not sure i've seen one of the rakes before. I could see both of these being very handy

Now play nice guys i acually may sell this as i really dont have a need for it. The only reason i bought it was i've never seen one before other than the cataloge and couldn't bare to leave it behind in his scrap pile.

When I saw your title I got real excited cause I was hoping you had the brackets! Lol. I've got 2 of these in different sizes but don't have the brackets! Or the rake part, that's friggin sweet! Good score.

So i figure i've had this long enough and wanted to start taking it apart and figuring what needs fixing. I managed to get all the rake tines off while saving all the square nuts. Though i have to find these weird looking screws that are used to secure the rake to the swivel plate. The good news is i can still paint the mounting bracket and the back blade since they work together fine.

 

This pic shows the bend in the rake bar i need to straighten this.

And this shows the the machine screw.
