Nascar, Check out this Site

Handiman Tractors

Lots & Lots of cool Pics & Info on all Handiman tractors made by DB

The Guy who operates this site is a Handiman Expert, I think if you contact him, he would probably have a PDF File to send you.

This just answered my question of why it dont hook up...look at the snowblower in this photo and then look at the pic I took of mine....it has an extra plate on it where mine dont....unless its on my rototiller? I just noticed the rototiller goes on the front lol, maybe it on there.....

I Just dug her out of the snow... Here are some pics of the handiman showing you the close up of the Blower attachment and the reciever plate you are missing. You Need That Plate . I'm guessing it was taken off by someone to use on another attachment. I also added a pic of my Tractor, as you can see, I mounted a 1 7/8 inch ball on it and have been using it as a trailer dolley since i have no engine. (everything around here has got to earn it's keep)
I also did a short video but can't seem to get it uploaded here. I'll throw it on you tube and try to get it up that way asap. Anyway, hope this solves the mystery for you, Good Luck.

Just edited the post to add this link to the You Tube Video i Just Posted for you.

Well guess what, this made it's way to VA and I just bought it. The blower is still missing some stuff, I hope to get it all correct here soon. I already had the mower deck, brush saw, and snow blade.
