At the Cumberland Valley show in Chambersburg,PA 2 years ago they had a Bolens with a blown engine and some attachments which were sold separately . One of them was a box scraper which I think brought about $100. I was fairly new to the tractor collection addiction at the time. In hindsight, I would have bought the tractor and all of the attachments they sold that day. I am still learning but having a good time doing so.

Sometimes we just live in the wrong part of the country Brian. I've seen some things on e-bay that I would love to try and buy but they are just too far away, especially with the higher gas prices. We just have to keep looking and hopefully a really good deal will come our way.

:ditto:

But, IF you REALLY need/want a box scraper, Brinly still makes one for use with a sleeve hitch, and, at 189.99, it's not all that costly.

I'm not even sure where Metamora, MI is and it may be a good thing that I don't! CL has been good to me so far, but oh so bad to the bank account....Saw a nice 1050 with deck and blade in Lowel, MI for 500 last night. I cringed when my wife asked what I was looking at on the computer. A this point I'd rather her think I was looking at porn than garden tractors, probably wouldn't get in as much trouble! It sucks being on garden tractor lock down:(

The Gannon Earthcavator could be fitted to a variety of garden tractors, depending on the arms installed. They were not only for Bolens tractors.

I have one, but no way to get a weight on it. I would guess closer to 150#.
