The great folks at Ballantine came through on the two trencher sprockets that I desperately needed in order to have a functional trencher on my Bolens HT23. The pic shows the two (very) worn sprockets I took off the trencher, and their new replacements. As noted before, the 10 tooth sprocket (360-313) is the main drive and the 12 tooth sprocket (360-234) drives the augers to push the excavated soil away. And the two of them together was only $180. Very reasonable when you consider that they were not stock items, but had to be made to order.

Be sure to send them some pics when you are done. Good Luck, Rick

I already told them that I would send them pics when I am done, especially because some of their younger employees were unaware that Ballantine ever made such a thing. My good fortune was connecting with one of their older employees. He actually worked on manufacturing the Bulldog trenchers back when Ballantine owned that business.
