"Look what followed me home"

If this aint the cutest little pup …..

Actually in great shape, as I expect to clean and wax it, get it running, should be great find. I was dumpling leaves at my landfill, and this guy pulled up next to me, and was dropping off his leaves , I asked him about the blower, he said you want it … end of story … lol, went from his trailer to mine …. Wonderful day …..

Yes, I have been very fortunate to get all mine for free. Some needed work and attention, but free is always good, and I have the know how and means to work on them thankfully.

Yeah, so I only had time to park it today with my collection, but tomorrow its supposed to rain, so I think I will start it up, check it out, make adjustments if required, and give it a clean and wax job. Nice Rainy day task.

I can quickly tell by the paint and overall condition, that it was not used very much at all, and the little gas that is in it looks clean, and even smells like gas, not shellac, so I am not expecting to much to be wrong with it.

I have never owned a Bolens, but have heard the name for sure. I like the fact that being a nice 21 inch, that I can whip it out for the little snow events,

Awesome. I like my Toro 521 for ease of use close to the house, etc. That one looks great.

Nice find! She's in great shape!

It looks like the old troy-bilts from Garden Way (i.e 42027) which has the tecumseh tranny based (not a friction disc).

My neighbor has one that I just repaired (drive-chain popped-off somehow.)

Hoping to check it out and clean it up today. No rust, very clean …

Yes, its not a friction drive, but an actual standard transmission … I am so looking forward to freshening this one up.
