That's not a forklift, that's a Hang-N-Haul.  It just didn't have a wood platform on it yet.

I don't know if Dean is still making them or not.  Pretty handy for hauling stuff around, even without a platform.

 

 

That is one nifty attachment.

I also use Search Tempest. It works really well and covers all of the Craigslist locations within the search radius from your location, and if you don't want it to clutter up your results with the eBay search you already did, you can uncheck that option. Plus it is free! Too bad Craigslist has never figured out that they could do the same thing.

Here's one that popped up.

Shipping won't be that bad. Need to make a lift rod for it though.

Here's the two hitches. Maybe it isn't made by Bolens but has a Bolens part number on it. It hard to tell in the pics but there is a difference in the end of the rods where it mounts to the lift handle.

Well, everyone. My new sleeve hitch is fabricated and packed ready for shipping. I just have to send final payment and shipping cost. I estimate in 2 weeks I should have it. I will see if I can get a few pics of the fab and final product to post.

Excellent! I'd like to see some pictures when you get it.  I've been keeping my eyes open to find one for my 1050.

Kfs35, I had someone post this in another forum back on the 12th very late in the evening.

 

"I just spotted a Bolens tube frame sleeve hitch Model 18907-02 on eBay. It was just listed 2 hours ago. No bids yet. Starting bid = $15. Ending in 6 days, 22 hours."

 

Maybe you can run a search for it and see where it stands. Good luck.

Yeah, that was me who posted that ebay post on the 12th. Of course I forgot to include a link to it. It was the same sleeve hitch that Old Iron Junky posted here on the 13th. It's still available. There are 22 hours left and the bid is up to $46 after 13 bids. Here's the link again.
