Got started on the road trip yesterday. We got a late start, and as I have come to expect, no sooner than we had the trailer hooked up...the rains came. We had some rain and even a bit of snow mixed in with it for about two hours, but after that it cleared up some, but stayed cloudy.

It stayed overcast until we hit Columbus OH, and then started to clear up.

With the late start, and traffic delays due to construction on I-70 West of Indianapolis, we decided to stop overnight and pick up the attachments later this morning, instead of tring to get them loaded in the dark,

Right now we are sitting in a Pilot truck stop in Terre Haute IN, just about 30 minutes or so from where we are getting the attachments...AND IT'S RAINING once again.

Speaking of attachments, here are a couple of hints:

One is a very rare FRONT MOUNTED attachment for the tube frames, and one that has been at the top of my 'wish list'.

The other is a Brinly sleeve hitch attachment...very rare as well, and has been on my 'it would be nice, but I'll most likely never find one' list.

I'll probably take pics when I pick them up, but am debating as to whether or not to post them before I get home.

I'll be posting updates here as the road trip progresses.

You are the official Road Trip Rascal! Happy trails and safe journeys to ya. That rain seems to be some shower of transition for equipment coming to your care. I won't enter my guess 'cause I think I'd be cheating with insider info, Good Luck! Be safe, lookin forward to updates.

Be careful out there, seems like everytime i load or unload gt's or farm tractors, it starts to rain! winter time it snows. I was loading a cub cadet that has a tricycle front end, one of my ramps broke and i layed it over. mistake #1 was loading off a yard bank in a p u truck,#2was driving instead of pushing it #3 ramps should have been looked at a little closer. A lesson learned. A few cuts n bruises and a dent or two.

I've seen a tow behind York Power Rake, but this is the first time I've heard of a front mounted one for the Bolens. Would have a pic/link to one?

Hint: The front mounted atachment is PTO driven.

Hint: The last time I saw the Brinly attachment for sale was on eBay. It was a NOS one and, if memoory serves, ended up selling for $900.00

Only " very rare" Front mount attachments for the tubeframes are the Generator/Alternator, Seeder, 540rpm PTO attachment & Danco FEL. If its rare like you say its got to be one of those.....

As for the Sleeve hitch attachment my guess is if its "very rare" : Planter/Fertilizer unit, Tool Bar/Scraper, Rear mount seeder, Rotary leaf rake

I wouldn't even think about loading a Large Frame in a pickup truck.

Loading won't be a problem. Heres the pics of what I'm using on this trip. Only difference this time is I'm not towing with my F150.

Happy trails OB! I know what you mean about the rain LOL. Judging from the names of all of your tractors, You have a meteorological malady :D That's a nice rig you have to go and fetch stuff with though!
For me, it seems to rain for EVERY plow day that I attend. On the up-side, it usually doesn't stop us from plowing, it just makes the traveling a pain.
We'll be waiting for the pics! Be safe.

OK, Doc did name the Brinly attachment...but WHICH on is it :D

As for the other...one last hint...it's painted red.

Now, I'm logging off, battening down the hathes, and going to pick them up.

Further updates to come.

My other guess is the Haban Flail mower but IMO I wouldnt put that in the "Very rare" Category.
