Went to the St. joe valley swap meet in Jones Michigan today found a few items today made a couple trades. Got the Bolens Gardner on a trade bought the versa-matic from the same guy. I have been looking for probably 10 years for a Bolens factory brake kit and now I finally have one Also picked up a set of Bolens weights old style, also a ridemaster snow blade and a power-ho weed cutter. Perhaps my best deal of the day was finding a set of 5 blade mini disks they were mounted on a badly damaged power ho cultivator but I will save the disc and toss the frame All and all a pretty good day at the swap! image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

You made out all right on that venture I would say. Been a while since I saw those tire tread type like on the Gardner. I tis interesting how FMC changed things as they went along. My Gardener has the Briggs motor and no name on the shroud. Your has the Wisconsin engine with the name embossed into the shroud.

I'd like to see a pic of the Ride-Master snow blade and where/how it mounts.
