I was going to say if they did fit I would sell you one if I decide to get rid of one later on.

 

Maybe Once I get a power Ho we can deal :D

 

 

There was a conversion kit sold for the rear implements where you could use power attachments with the Versa-Matics, but not for the front mount attachments.

No

Hard to tell by the pics what model it was for :D

 

It appears both sicklebars are for the PowerHo's, as the handwheel (knob) on the front of the hitch is only used on Gardeners & PowerHo's.

 

The VersaMatics had a pin on each side of the tractor frame which engaged slots on the attachment hitch.  .....The attachment was locked to the tractor using a handwheel (knob) behind the engine.

Please elaborate, Brian.   .....Any pics?   .....Which rear-mounted attachments needed power?

EDIT:

 

There was a Word Missing in my reply Here's the edited version:

 

 

There was a conversion kit sold for the rear implements where you could use Power HO attachments with the Versa-Matics, but not for the front mount attachments.

 

 

It was just a service bulletin with no photos.

Did it say if it bolted on the Power Ho attachments or just swaping out the tool bars?

 

I think there is still plenty of room in there, nothing is hanging from the ceiling yet :D

Brain Fart Alert:  I goofed !!  ....The pins are on the attachment hitches, NOT the tractor frame.  .....The slots are in the tractor frame.

Wow I missed this post. That is a great barn. It is nice to see that you keep them under cover safe and dry. What is the proto type 1886 that you have or what is different about that proto type compared to the 1886-01 they first came out with.
