Just ordered one of these:
Ballard Fabrication

Ordered it thru eBay, as it was just a wee bit cheaper that way.
Category 0 3 point drawbar with sleeve hitch adapter | eBay


Should be a nice add on for the 1886 :D

Yeah, I'll be sure to do that.

Going to put "new shoes" on it today.

It's STILL stuck in the south yard. :sensored:

I put some lumber under the back end to spread out the weight so I can get it jacked up.

I'm HOPING that with the Ancla's with rim guard will be enough to get it out.

I tried pulling it out with the 1256, but no go. The ground is super-saturated, and not much traction at all. Might have helped if I had a 2nd person.

Nice addition. I added a pic for you.

Good luck on getting it unstuck.

"Goodie" arrived today.

Looks JUST like in the pic.

VERY well made, nice welds, etc.

One thing to be aware of is that the "tab" on the side opposite of the sleeve hitch part is OPTIONAL, and he asks for a wee bit more shipping for that.

I would think that something like this is almost a MUST if you have a 3-pt on a Bolens, as it makes a lot more attachments usable.
