He's asking WAY too much but I sure would like to have that cart!

Cart looks to be the M127 that went with the 1940's Power Ho's

Brian:

 

If you have a sheet for the M127, would you please scan & post it? .....Thanks!

 

I don't remember ever seeing a Bolens cart with the steel tailgate and tube tongue.

I don't remember ever seeing a Bolens cart with the steel tailgate and tube tongue.

I had a guy tell me that Midland made the M127 cart and M125 sulky for Bolens. He had a parts list for both that said made by Midland at the bottom. I tried getting him to send me a copy, but he couldn't find them at the time. If you look at some of the early Simplicity carts and sulkies they have a lot  in common with the Bolens carts and sulkies. The cultivators (what mounts to the tool bar) are the same from Bolens to Midland that they used on the 12As. I think Bolens must have bought Midland attachments and put their name on them in the mid to late 40s.

 

I see the guy must of taking the brakes off the cart too.

Its in a Brochure thats in the manuals section here that I forgot which one it was in :wallbanging:

 

From what I remember reading the body of the cart could be removed and the sulky seat could be added to the frame so virtually it was 2 attachments in one....
