I am feeling good right now but I'll really dont know till a wake up tomorrow.  We used the sellers HT20 to pull the tractors up on the trailer I cant even think about pushing them on it.

Yeah.... those tractors don't push well. I had to shove mine across flat concrete and it moved as well as a two legged elephant. I can't imagine trying to roll one onto a trailer. Especially without bending fenders etc.

wilberj, when are you gonna get a hobby? You're spending so much time on rounding up all of these Bolens machines, yet, you'll never be able to put all of Detroit to work. :poke:

 

All joking aside, nice grab. :rocker2:

Nice haul!

Are these parts tractors or something to fix up and use?

That grader blade is an ARPS B343 (48") or B344 (50").

 

Hydro-Speed Equipment made mid mount blades for Bolens as well.

 

I suspect that the one I have is a Hydro-Speed unit, but still have to confirm it.  It is definitely similar in construction to the ones that they made for the tube frames.

I have one for a tube frame, heavy as can be but I have no clue how to mount it up under there. It may be missing some mounting gear.
