Thanks for posting.   :worshippy1:

 

A couple of things I noticed....

[1] Owen needs a cab.

[2] Although it was working great, that thing need a two stage blower.

[3] Wholly crap that Bolens has a great reverse! - once he got it in high side. 

I wish my Power King would back up that quick.   With the PK,  If I have very far to go in reverse, I usualy go inside and warm up a while.  :(  :wallbanging:  :mad2:

Ok, nobody else asked, so I guess I will. Is the rear on these machines a single wheel drive or dual wheel drive? I'm trying to figure out why the left tire is mounted correctly,  but the right tire is mounted backwards?

 

And don't tell me the left wheel is the drive wheel for forward, and the right wheel is the drive wheel for reverse. I might not be the brightest light bulb in the hallway, but at least I can still shine when my chain is pulled.
