That's one I think... Please bear with me. I'm very proud of this machine, its by far from perfect but I just had to buy it and show it off. I'll post the other link of the plow when I find the link.

My experience with the GK is that they drive kind of insecure and weird unless there is an attachment installed. Kind of like they need that attachment weight to be balanced properly. Hard to describe.

Nice machine. Nothing wrong with being proud of it. That thing would not get a minutes rest around here.

Wow, that is an awesome rig! I would feel the same way if I had one, now you just made me want to get one again!

Thanks guys for the positive feedback... My old lady and some others around here cant appreciate this piece of classic iron, my dad who is a devout IH cub man even admitted its a very well built machine and my buddy couldn't believe how big the physical size of the Wisconsin engine was compared to today's engines. Bolens had something special here but too bad it never took off.

I've been working my tail off getting the mower deck ready, blades lubing spindles and all the 1000 moving parts, setting the tensions, still a long way to go in parts and labor but should have it ready to mow very soon! As soon as its ready ill post a video of her. Glad you all like it as much as I do! I still someday need a estate keeper for my stable to do trim mowing! The estate keeper is actually what I was looking for until I found the Gk. Some day guys, some day!

Well got to the point its cutting grass for the most part, minor stuff to do yet. Biggest thing will be getting those front casters steering, they no kidding force the tractor to keep going straight while the front tires slide in the grass. I got them freed up now but hope they continue to loosen up with time and use. She's stored inside now out of the elements.
