This is on St Louis Craigslist. I assume its for an Iseki but it has the FMC BOLENS logo.

I don't think I've seen one like that either.

I'm guessing its an Iseki attachment, but like you said the decals have me puzzled :confuse:

Wasn't there a Bolens Iseki Diesel tractor though? It was probably for that. Or was that not actually built by FMC Bolens? (I'd assume the engine at least was built by Iseki and not Bolens, but the rest of the tractor might have been...)

Yep, for an Iseki: (you can see the FMC decal in one of the pics in the manual)

I looked at my "Attachment Interchange" manual, and it shows a 59" rear finishing mower for the Iseki Bolens. It's model number is 1959, and is listed as being for the 19 Hp and up tractors.

That's VERY interesting! Looks like it's a 3-pt too.

Sure would like to see more info on that Woods mower.

I have the same mower that Bigdaddydon posted. Bolens sold compact tractors made by Iseki in the 80's. My mower is a five foot finish mowerjust like the one for sale. 3 point hitch. My rear wheels are different, that's all. I don't have any photos available presently. It's a good mower that pairs nicely with my G192. The mower came with my Bolens compact tractor. I purchased it from the original owner with a bit less than 800 hrs on it about 10 yrs ago. I use a compact brush hog on the Bolens mostly now.
