We have one but it isn't mounted yet. Came with the 800 when we bought it. Best thing is to keep an eye on ebay and maybe get the parts separate because when it is complete they are fetching $250 - $300 normally.

George how is that driven? Is there a special pulley for an extra belt or do you steal a belt off the PTO?

I can't honestly tell ya buddy. I want to get it hooked up soon though as it will help with the snow blower. I have a feeling you would have to borrow a belt slot. I don't remember seeing a three belt pulley in the parts buckets we had. I will find out soon enough though and let ya know.

Thanks,
All my years into Bolens and I have always wondered how that pump was driven.

Mine isn't set up either, but the PO explained to me how it's done. The 1050 I have have has 4 belts, 2 for the tranny and 2 for the PTO. In between the 2 sets of 2 belts is a deep V. The lift pump is driven by that groove. Once I get the 1050 running, my next step is to put the hydraulic lift back on. I'll post pics when I get it working (in 2 years).

I'm going to put in a plug for Farmersville Equipment (Farmersville Equipment - Oliver tractors, Bolens, Oliver tractor parts, Oliver memorabillia, Oliver-White Tractors). They used to be a Bolens and Oliver dealer, now they just do parts and repairs. I drive past there every day on my way to work. Tom Buch, the owner has let me rumage in his parts bins for my Sears project and he has been more than willing to answer my HT23 questions. I know I saw a NOS hydraulic lift kit on his shop floor one day. Is it still there, don't know. He gave me good deals on parts, but I wasn't looking for pretty stuff.

I would be curious how much a NOS hydraulic lift kit would be.

I'm guessing around $500 if not more
