so abotu a week ago i played with the plow on the bolens, in the dirt. always fun but the ground was rock hard and i couldnt seem to tear out the rocks that needed to come out to level. so then it rained for the past 3 days. i got outside, she fired up and wow did i have fun. the ags were in 4 inches of wet muddy soil and they pulled right out. those 54" blade just tear it up no questions asked. i even got a partial stump out. im just amazed i only burned about 8 ounces of oil doing it today. but then again i only ran it for about 15 minutes.
