I put a bid on it hopping it to buy it a start price but it slipped away.

 

I only know of 1 other like it around.

I'll probably never sell it as I don't sell any Bolens I get but if I do you have first shot at it :D

I did not bid on the Caps and Can as I was saving up for the tiller. Wonder who got those caps?

 

I tried contacting the seller to see if they had any other  accessories but never heard from them :(

These also came with optional floor polisher, drill press, Grinder, Weed Trimmer, Shears

 

I think Aaron probably has the other correct?

I didn't know Bolens made anything like that.  I guess it is a power head for different attachments?

They made alot of unique things that most people dont know about. Alot of stuff like this was only made 1 or two years and sold in small quantities which is probably why information is scarce. Seems Bolens had all the bases covered in the Lawn and Garden industry back in the day.

 

You are correct, the actual motor and handle were the power head and additional attachments could be purchased.

These were made 1956-1957

The motor could have also been made by ME ..... Bolens Bought out the ME brand of tillers and equipment in the mid 50's and during the transition period the stuff still had the ME brand labeled on it as seen with this tiller.

David Bradley made something similar, it was basically a drill with attachments.
