That's that Urschel fella that rights for Cubs in LAGT mag. He seems pretty honest guy, we've met.  Looks pretty orig to me, but more light duty, not for heavy work.  Kinda like a Lawn Trailer, not a Garden Trailer, like the tractors.   If someone buys it I could pick it up and keep for awhile if needed, I'm from same town.

They sold those with TORO on the side and at least one other brand.
Let me see if I can find the thread

I found pics of KK's TORO version.
This post and two below it have pics.

They were not made by Bolens but were just a Generic brand cart  Bolens bought to put their name  and colors on.

 

They were meant for the small frames.

I have a NOS one that was still sealed in the box when I got it.

Wow, the guy must want a fortune for it.

I cant believe anyone would even bid $100 for that!

Thats 4X what I paid for my NOS one!

OK, a little update and info on that rascal.

 

I have two BIG binders full of information on Bolens attachments.

 

I was going through them today and found the Parts List for the 15110 Dump Cart.  It also give assembly instructions.

 

It's listed as a 4 12/2 Cu. Ft. Dump Cart, with a 150# load capacity.

 

What's really funny is the name of the company that made them:

 

Garton Toy Company

Sheboygan, Wis. 53018
