Welcome to GTT. Congratulations on having a great tractor. You can download three manuals per day for free from our "Manuals" Section. There are many Bolens Manuals in the section. One of our sponsors specializes in Bolens. Check with him for parts. Advice is always available here when you post a thread. Pictures will help clarify your questions. Good Luck, Rick

HI welcome to GTtalk.

 

What kind of parts and attachments are you looking for?

 

Also can you post photos of your 1886 so I can ID the model for you so you get the right manuals.

Thanks Guys,

I will post the pics tommorow, any help would be appreciated. Looking for any attachments that would complete this tractor. Not really sure what attachments can be used. Disc? blade? Snow thrower? tiller?

Any sugestions?

All of the above and more...  :thumbs:  :smilewink:

 

Those large frames can use pretty much anything and they made a ton of attachments for them.  FEL's (Frond End Loaders - I had always wondered what people were talking about with FEL's for a while too before I finally figured it out, lol...), backhoes, tillers, snow blowers (even 2-stage blowers, I believe?  I think the Bolens ones were all only single stage, but you can find 2-stage ones to work on Large Frame tractors...), ploughs, disc harrows, pretty much ANY big farm tractor implements that will fit on the 3-point hitch will work on your tractor...  It should have enough power to run lots of stuff too.  There are pictures and video of another member on here running a huge PTO driven finishing mower behind their Large Frame tractor too...  So, almost anything is possible...

 

Where are you located in New York anyways?  I'm in Albany myself.  Always good to run into another New Yorker on here...  At least ALL of the tractor guys aren't out west...  (Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, etc...)
