I just used the earthcavator for the first time and it is so awesome. I have never used a back blade or front blade or anything other than a front loader/tiller/brush hog/excavator. The earthcavator just saved me hours of work in my backyard and it was fun. I started going around the property knocking down high spots anywhere I could find. If my wife doesn't stop me I will end up fixing three acres worth. Now if I could only find a flail mower.

Bolens 1250 for sale. I contacted him for a picture of his starter generator pulley set-up he sent it to me but his loader is not set-up like mine. He said his loader is is powered by his tractor hydraulics?

yeah I wish it were not a all day drive to go look at it. I am working on my new 1250 with the loader . this is what my pump looks like. Its been a bit difficult. The starter generator was bad and the double pulley was shot. I found a replacement but the pulley from the starter is really close to the hydraulic pump.

2 cylinder Wisconsin motor. Does this look like one that would have been in a Bolens?

The only Bolens with a 2-cyl Wisconsin was the Grounds Keeper.  It has the THD engine.

Finally painted my motorcycle trailer with the sample I took and had matched from my 1476....it's much darker that the oxidized paint on the hood. I may redo it at this point.

I am not sure how this happened but my free bolens eliminator 1402 is a beaut. It came with a rototiller, a front blade and mower deck. It has the twin cylinder 14 hp Briggs. It runs very nice and it is so quiet. I cleaned the tank and replaced the fuel filter, just added oil for now. It needs a new choke cable and the mower deck needs to be installed correctly. It has all the original manuals and sales brochure.
