I got a handed down Bolens 1600 eliminator from my father when I bought my first house 4 years ago. He bought it new in 1985. Good machine. Replaced the motor a couple times in it’s life, starters go every time it snows or when I really need to use it.i did the flywheel, I have replaced the starter twice in 2 years. replaced the transmission 2 years ago, deck is shot, has engine issues as we speak, hydro pump is whining good with good oil levels. Snowblower needs new bearings as well as front end parts, etc. it’s tired, and I’m tired of wrenching on it as I did by myself the last few years and with my father growing up. It’s 32 years old and it’s time, and not worth putting more money into it as parts are near impossible to find, expensive, not to mention the used parts I find are worn out more than the parts currently on the machine.
I snowblow and mow. I’m 25, I have just over a half an acre. I plan on selling and buying another home in 5-6 years with enough room to hunt, shoot, and fish. I might be taking care of my grandparents driveway as well coming this winter. I hate belt driven attachments and transmissions. I want a 30 year machine.
I’ve narrowed it down to a new x738 with 48 mower and 47 snowblower. 0%, why not get awd.
What is the OAL of a 738 with snowblower attached. I have a 10x12 shed with the double doors on the 12’ side, so I have 10’ 2” to work with for inside demensions if I pull in straight.
