Think this will look good behind the 1476? It's a couple hours away from me but hopefully the guy who owns it will wait until Tuesday so I can pick it up.

That cart appears in nice shape, but IMO would look silly behind a large frame since they're so small, would look better on your 600.

Shucks, that trailer would look nice behind ANY Bolens :D :D :D

 

It does bring up a question.

 

When I got my E-Z Vac, it came with a Bolens trailer that has the same model number: 16459 04.

 

However, mine is painted black, and has a different decal. I'm 99.99% sure that it's in the original color.

 

Here are a couple of pics:

You would think that they would have given them a different production run number with the change in color and decals.

 

Just another Bolens 'oddity' I guess.

The Husky decal on the sides indicates 1973-1974 approx, but yet the actual model tag indicates 1972 and lower.... Dont know what to make of that????

its tractor season! I brought out my 1476 and took it for a spin. I am gonna take the mower off and predominately use the 1476 with its other accessories. I have another Bolens to do the grunt work of mowing and such. My next project will be to buy a sandblaster so I can refinish some of the attachments. I am also looking for a rock rake as I should have one of everything Bolens related.image.jpeg image.jpeg

Well it was running rough so I rebuilt the carb. Oh and then I started it up and the exhaust done fell oft! Maybe it's the time to learn how to weld? I did by two welders last fall.

That's not good!

 

Member, WrenchinOnIt, rebuilt the one on his 1476 using SS piping. Might give you an idea or two. http://gardentractor...-1476/?p=516606

Well I got the exhaust pipe off! I went old school and used a flat head screwdriver and a hammer and pried and cut that sucker off. Maybe I can get to the auto store to pick up supplies tomorrow.
