I've been looking for a walkbehind for a while now and finally one came up for sale on ebay that was local.

Here are the pics from the listing, I'll be picking it up sometime this week :dancingbanana:
The attachments that came with it are a snowblower and a front push blade. It looks to have been well maintained

Nice score 1000. What brand of engine does that have? Clinton? How does it compare to a Gravely?

I never used a gravely walkbehind or a Bolens walk behind before so I cant really say how it compares

Congrats. Looks good. I've never seen any of those Bolens up here. I'd like to find one though. It looks like it would be mighty hany to have one around.

good deal Brian! Theres been a few bolens that have popped up an craigslist, but nothing to jump at in a while! Good to see you found something local on ebay. It seems like everything I find good on ebay is thousands of miles away! Good luck, and we will be looking forward to the future threads and pics!
