As promised here are the pictures of the things I bought:

pa auction 004.jpg

A NOS Bolens tractor cover

pa auction 010.jpg
I got a NOS PTO shaft for the EK and what looks to be a used EK rear counter weight
pa auction 008.jpg

I got this Bolens dealer display light and post


pa auction 005.jpg

NOS EK front blade

pa auction 007.jpg


I also got this NOS pull behind cart for the small frame Bolens




pa auction 003.jpg

And finally another EK10! :dancingbanana:
When I first saw it in the warehouse it was all together. Then one of the owners had this great idea of bringing it out on a fork lift...... Well he picked it up and started dragging it in this awkward position and snapped the piviot mechanism in half :wallbanging::wallbanging::wallbanging::mad2::mad2::mad2:

Breaking that pivot likely saved you several $'s, and an easy fix too. SUPER haul Brian! And you are so right, there are some
things you just cannot pass up! This was one of those things!

Brian, I can't believe you didn't let us know you were coming down. I wanted to make it to the auction but kind of forgot about it but if I would have know you were coming down we definitely would have made it up.

Nice stuff you got though :D

That's An awesome looking cart.I think I would mask off the decal and paint it Yellow and tow it behind the EK.

Sweet score on another EK.Good thing about it is you have all the parts on the other PK to fix this one.

I love that Bolens cover.My cub 127 would look Awesome covered with that.:worshippy1::bounce::rolling::laughingteeth::rofl2::rocker2::rocker::dancingbanana:

Thats what I figured.... Only paid $140 for it and I got the parts EK I will just swap the part over :D

The deck that came with it is in awesome condition. There is still paint on the blades!
