Ok i recently bought a ht-18 and the mower wasnt attached so i didnt think anything of it and now when its time to mow the grass well im not experience with bolens and ive looked at numerous pictures but none of them seem to show how the lift arms attach to the tractor. I have them on the mower deck like everyone else does but i seem to be having troubles getting them hooked up to the tractor. Pictures would greatly help. It is a 54" mower deck pto driven, you all probally already know this but i just figured the more information i could give the better. thanks
