Very nice! Those headlights original? They look a brighter newer red than the body.

Looks like the back of a large frame Bolens if I am not mistaken.

That's what I was thinking.

These headlights are the same as the NOS I had. I have seen another D4/12 with these headlights on the Internet. Notice the rings are painted not chrome. I am thinking that KD used another brand of paint that originally matched the tractor, but has faded out differently

Try to get more pictures today- got to get the leaves to the county dump before it rains.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1417870198.099907.jpg

Previous owner had made a hydraulic lift using the rear pto. I first thought it would be taken off and put back original- but since have changed my mind and plan on keeping it on. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1417870357.798082.jpg

Scott, I have two sets of those AG's that are on the Bolens. I really like them!

That lift on the BH is neat. Looks good on there!

Few more pictures. Front axle is bent forward (factory). Never seen this on a D4-10. Rear tail light is same as JB. Another shot of the rear hydraulic pump and reservoir.

Those Hein Werner hydraulic pumps were used on just about every brand it seems!

Were those optional or standard for these tractors?
