As far as Handi Ho's, I have 4, and each one is different in one way or another. mainly, the large trans pulley is different on all four!!!
So has anyone ever seen the snow plow besides the manual???

Ah, cool, when someone types something like this, ex: "and THAT is not were it goes" i take the capitalized word as someone that is upset or trying to prove a point strongly, it's good to know i did not upset you in any way, shape or form, i tend to question very hard for infomation and it gets me in trouble sometimes,:D , don't mind me, some people have called me sporadic and eccentric,:bounce:
I take it that most if not all the ground engaging tools that bolt to the tool bar on the Handi Ho was made by Planet Jr. ?, weeding hoes, plow, etc...
This is the first tractor i have seen use the briggs model 6 with the S cast air filter tube, i thought only David Bradleys had them on their briggs engines, looks like the Power Hos used them too,

Thanks, I now have the few missing original parts I need to finish it up. Still need to repaint it's basic brother.

This is the first tractor i have seen use the briggs model 6 with the S cast air filter tube, i thought only David Bradleys had them on their briggs engines, looks like the Power Hos used them too,

I have seen them on alot of other things too. I have a Craftsman reel mower that has it if not mistaken. DB's just seem to have had the most use of them.

That may be awhile, I don't stick to one thing very long, buried deep in a John Deere 40 right now, then some other things I want to get running. Painting takes to long, then you have to be careful with it from then on.

The Handi-Ho attachments available included a Weeder, Cultivator, Rotary Tiller, Sno-Caster, Reel Lawn Mower, Sickle Bar, Snow Plow, and Tire Chain.

I have previously posted the manual for the 10C & 10CB in the Bolens section of the Manuals Forum. .....I recently found manuals for the attachments listed above, and will post them when I have time.


Manuals for the Handi-Ho attachments are now posted in the Handi-Ho section at:

Bolens Walk Behinds - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums
