Heres pics of the two attachments I picked up on the road trip.

First, Newpaws' Brinly dump. As you can see the PO added some washers where the dump attaches to the 'frame'. That is a weak point, so it/was probably cracking a bit there. The only other thing I could find was a tiny ding on the bottom.

Other than that it's in EXCELLENT condition with the decals still in decent shape, and only surface rust.

Wow, that looks to be in barely used condition. Definitely a keeper.

Now the Sweepster C-48.

It isn't in as good condition as the Brinly Dump, but I think it will do just fine as a 'working" attachment, and like the Brinly Dump, it was reasonably priced.

The Brinly dump is in great shape! The sweepster looks like a useful tool to have around. Nice scores there OB!

Congrats on the Sweeper attachment.
She looks like she was rode hard and put away wet but overall looks pretty solid.
Do you have everything to mount it to the Largeframe/Tubeframe? Looks like your missing a few parts ???

I'm pretty sure I do.

There are some other parts that I didn't take pics of.

Looking at the pics of both the dump cart and the Sweepster, how do these mount to the tractor? Is that Sweepster designed to fit a Bolens or is it another "generic" attachment? Will that only fit a large frame? Looks like a couple of nice scores there, I wish I could find (and afford) some of the cool stuff you've found there, OB!! :thumbs:

The Sweepster is for a Large Frame, and there is another piece that bolts to the front of the frame.

For the dump, look at the last pic. You tilt the rear of it up a bit, and slide that 'slot' over the pins in the mounting tabs on the rear axle. Then it rests on the hitch, and you put hitch pin through the hole to keep it from falling off.


In this vid, you will get a brief look at how it mounts on my 800. It's at the 1:18 mark in the vid

Both look like nice additions to your stuff. I agree, the dump cart was a nice jewel to add in great shape.

Nice treasures there.
Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed, that OB makes a whole lot more road trips, than
anyone else?

BTW, nice clean truck bed.

That's because there just doesn't seem to be any Bolens in this area. Odd too, since there was a Bolens dealer not more than about 15 miles from here. Plus, for some of the rarer stuff, like the EZ-Rake dethatcher, you just HAVE to be willing to travel for them.

Anyway, the wife likes the road trips...especially the ones we use the motorhome for.

He probably ArmorAll'd it so it doesn't take so long to unload. Drop tailgate, reverse and jam on brakes. Go on the next trip.
