Can anyone give me the dimensions of the 4 marked areas? I'm looking to modify my tractor to accept Bolens front attachments. I just need to know the mounting tab information.

 

Also if someone could give a dimension from the ground to the bottom of the mounting ears that would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I don't see any attachment indicating 'the 4 marked areas'.

Wow I guess I'm the idiot? I totally forgot to put the attachment on the message. I will attach it tomorrow morning as I don't have it with me. Sorry for the confusion.

what size tires are you using on the front of the unit your building it for , as this makes a difference based on attachment and tractor it mounted to . my H16 uses mounting tabs cast into the front axle as does the 1050 and the 750 but the tire size is different between the last two, my 1050's have wider tires than the 750 and 900 we have which can cause rubbing and based on air pressure ground clearance issues, so check clearance and proceed my good man

Thanks for the info. Another reason I want the stock ground to bottom of tab measurement. Was also looking for the tab spacing, thickness, width, height, and hole diameter. ;)

These measurements would be best duplicated without the tires/wheels mounted if you are looking to duplicate precisely this style of mounting. Lemme see what I can come up with.

Well from the ground with properly inflated tires would help me judge if my existing axle and tire setup would work as it sits..

I see now that you've posted a pic. If you'll pester me, I'll try to get you those dimensions tomorrow afternoon. If you don't pester me, I may forget.  :loosing_it:

Actually I'm good to go. I bought the whole 1050 front axle assembly on ebay for 50$ picked up. :)
