Anyone actually see the attachment for this?

If your going to use the word rare I think its appropriate for this!

WOW, Brian, that's an interesting pamphlet !  :thumbs:  :rocker2:

 

It appears to be an Artic 70 snowblower (the red & white model). 

 

Do you have any other info (parts list or price sheets) for the reel unit?  .....It appears it was made by Roxy (same as some of the gang mowers), but did Bolens ever offer them through their distributors? 

 

Ariens made a similar combination, that was quite successful.  .....Evidently these reels were not popular for the Bolens.

Thats the only sheet I have on this unfortunately.

None of the dealer literature mentions this accessory either.

Looks like FMC Bolens tried a redesign of their earlier version of the one power pack system.

if your saying something is rare, then it must be a hen's tooth. As a reel mower it should have had plenty of power with 7hp running only 25" of width.

No one likes to hear the work rare but I would have to think that's got to be pretty close I'm sure there can't be but a handful left

Yep, only time I break out the "R" word for Bolens is for the exotic stuff like this and the convertible comes to mind.

I think it will be a crazy bidding war going on if a convertible pops up on eBay! Lol

. I wouldn't doubt it! You can travel all over the place and sometimes end up finding it a few miles down the road.

The older Ariens convertibles were much more plentiful than the later ST models built in the late 80's thru the early 90's. I've been looking for the mower deck, dethatcher, tiller, or the broom for my Ariens wb for 10 years. So far I've got the air filter kit.
