Thats a real nice walk behind. I have a cultivator or one of those in my bone pile.  I always wondered what it went to.

Yeah you did. :mad2:  I'll find another one someday. Didn't really need it right now.

 

If you got a little time before you paint your wheels, I can get the yellow I'm working with a closer match and get the info to you.

I forgot that I have a power hoe in the bowels of the one machine shed. It has no hood,but sickle mower. It worked great

but hay,brush and trash would kill the engine .......... push kill wire to block.. took me a while to figure that out lol,

well, never got a chance to start restoring the power ho, been busy adding to the collection and working on some of my allis projects....I got too many projects, been trying to slim them down but once i do i always seem to find something to replace it..   two motor swaps in progress, car and truck, trail truck/ hunting truck, two allis tractors needing lots of attention, several allis attachments working on, JD720 diesel needs misc help...  list goes on...  keeping up garden, ongoing projects and repairs on the farm.....

 

thinking of doing a partial restore...  hood, grill, gas tank, wheels....  keep the rest in its work clothes.

 

last weekend I parted out 5 bolens walk behinds, good parts went in the shed, rotted wheel went in the scrap, tractor frames went across the creek to the bone yard.  anyone wanna trade some power ho attachments for versa matic attachments?

What was wrong with the frames? Hopefully you didn't get rid of the handle bars. I could use a set or two for a 12BB.

I still got the frames and handle bars nate, there in safe hiding where they cant be seen from the house or road, lol.   got too many things in yard 3 tractors, 5 riders, 8 walk behinds, roto baler, combine, camper, 6 vehicle, ect

 

only thing I can think of I actually hauled to scrap was the 8 or 10 rotted wheels.........  been busy adding and re-dispursing the collection. up to 4-12bb01 a 12b01 handi ho and 153 04 super versa matic.  been getting rid of enough vehicle parts I can get more tractor stuff!lol  sold a set of heads tonight, get to go buy building materials tomorrow!

So was the 12B-01 in as good a shape in the pics? It came with 5 attachments right? I don't remember.

The hitch you are referring to as a "sleeve hitch" is the special hitch you need to attach the factory sulky. I have the sulky and the hitch, which is how I know. That hitch allows the sulky to twist independent of the tractor.
