I just got a Bolens H16.  It is the first Bolens I have ever seen and came with a snow blower and rototiller.  I am looking for a mower deck and have no idea what I should be looking for.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Walt

Welcome to the forum, Walt. I moved the thread to the Bolens section for you!

Welcome to GTT :wave:

There were different styles of decks available and you will need to get the right lift bracket's and mounting system for the decks.

 

If you have a picture of your tractor that would help get the ball rolling as you may have some brackets for the deck already in place.

There are 7 mower decks which are not recommended for your H-16. (4 models are 32" decks, 2 are 38" decks & 1 is a 42" deck)

 

There are 6 mower decks that will fit, but will require certain hitch parts: 

               

                38" models #18415 & #18416 and 42" models #18420 & #18421 require part # 1722454 and #1722455 Links.

 

                38" model #18417 & 42" model #18422 requires a #18425 Hitch kit and part # 1722454 and #1722455 Links.

 

 

The Bolens model #18418 is a 38" mower deck that does not require anything else, if it is complete.

 

The Bolens model #18423 is a 42" mower deck that does not require anything else, if it is complete.

Hi all!  I just found these messages on here.  Thank you. 

 

I dont yet know how to reply to individual ads so this will have to do.  The tractor runs fine, but idles rough.  everything seems to work. 

 

Bruce:  can you have a look at this ebay ad?  the seller says it will fit my tractor.  they are hanger linkages and I dont know how necessary they are.

I wonder if these are the parts required on some of the mower decks you listed as compatible, but needing extra parts.

 

thanks,

 

Walt

No, Walt, I don't think these are the brackets you will need.

 

These are from a tube-frame mower deck, but I don't believe these are what you will need.

 

The parts pictured are from the earlier decks, whereas the later decks used a different style of mounting hardware.

 

If you look in the Manuals forum (button at top of this page) or use this link:  http://gardentractor...11-tube-frames/  you can find info about your tractor and the many attachments available. 

 

I believe there are manuals there for the various mower decks (click on Implement Manuals in the left column of that page.)  ...You can compare the pieces in the manuals.
