I'm not an expert on walkbehind's, but i saw a pic of a pond with a plow that looked really similar to this one. I got it a long time ago and was never really sure what it went to. All i know is that is looked good on the back of my wheel horse! lol Anyway, if someone could steer me in the right direction with this that would be great! Thanks!

It is probaly a older wheel horse slot hitch plow, the pond walk away plow I have is very similar but the tongue is longer because it connects to two points on the frame.  With only one connecting point the plow would be able to swing side to side on a pond.

its a Pond walk behind plow, the two little pipes fit between the handle bars down near the gear case. What should be said is its one for a 53 and up walker, on the earlier ones the handle meant together right before the case. I have one with out the pipes, it has a pair of holes in the drawbar, one for the pulling pin and one to keep it from swinging.

Even though I personally don't own any walk behinds yet I love seeing them. Definitely post a pic when you get a chance.

I am working on it. Dad has a couple of Bolens walk behinds. I would like to get one or two of my own as well. It also takes extra money to buy and that is a little short these days.

yep the price of some of this stuff seems to be going though the roof lately. I really don't seem to have the problem with the cost of most walkers, it's the cost of redoing it that about kills the project off. I have a lot of them right now that are going to stay as bought, until I see the need to repaint them. I like the ones that work right over the paint jobs any way.

I would take a good working original condition tractor any day over one that is painted but still needs mechanical work. I like seeing them in their work clothes. I love seeing the restored tractors too don't get me wrong but then I am afraid to touch them.
