She must have at least 1" front spindles to handle what that thing can lift!  That has to be a super rare find for sure.  

 

Hard to tell what the axle size is right now, Yeah, I've been real lucky with finding and getting some hard to find Bolens goodies.

 

I don't know if you can read it, but the data tag on the mast says that it's rated for 750#.

 

Once it gets here I'll try to get all the data off of that plate that I can.

 

It's interesting that it had a model number on it: MODEL 71 GT.

 

That makes me think that they may have made then for other tractors as well.

 

Of course, I WILL be making a video as well as taking pics.

Sounds like a very cool find OB, can't wait to get to see it in person some day, but will have to wait for pics until then. :D

BTW, you had me confused...
When I read the title, I thought you were reinventing a phrase, updating by removing "horse" and putting something more 20th Century in...

The forks are on the front? There must be some serious counterweight on that monster.

 

I don't need a rare Bolens. I just want an 1886 with a mowing deck and PS. Nothing fancy.

 

The 1886 is not rare....
