Long day yesterday,but made the trip and picked up either a 1962 or 1963 Bolens walkbehind snow caster,528-01 or 531-01,still trying to locate the number on it,it was repainted at one time but pretty decent,this thing runs like a bear,you just don't see these,so now I have it and my Artic 60,here's a couple pics

Nice Find

It should be the Arctic 40

I would say its a 532-01 Around 1964-1965  Not a 62'-63'

 

What a great find, I have first dibs if you ever sell it :D

Yes, both were being made at the same time, this was the small version then the Arctic 60 was the step up.

Wow, they look LONG in pix. Kinda neat all enclosed to keep the snow and ice out of the workings, but bet a hard one to work on if needed? How many HP is that then? Tec engine?

That thing looks like a tank with all that shrouding in place.

 

Tec engine?

 

Looks "Briggish" to me.

Nice find! I've always wondered why snow blowers/casters were made with "snow engines" rather than with a "hood" such as this caster has??

Very nice. The engine looks like a conventional summer engine with an air filter. As long as it doesn't ice up, I'd certainly prefer this setup to the Snow King type engine without an air cleaner. No air cleaner always seems like such a bad idea.
