Picked up a very heavy weight this  weekend but have no idea what it is from or for.  Anyone know?  Marked Bolens.

That's for the Bolen EK series.

 

It mounts on the hitch and you put a pin/bolt through the hole to secure it.

 

If I remember right, those are in the neighborhood of 85 Lbs.

Any real value to it?  I seem to be finding Bolens stuff I can't use and has no value.

Yeah, it could have some value.

 

The EKs did havea snow blade and a snowcaster for them.

 

If someone has an EK and one of both of those attachments they could want it.

 

There's just not that many EKs out there as compared to the tube and large frames, and probably fewer still that have the blade and/or 'caster attachments.

Since I do not have proper wheel weights for my 1556 I may make a mount on the hitch and use this for extra weight for plowing snow this winter.  My 280lbs plus that weight and chains should be enough for my flat driveway.
