I have noticed several times where Brinley attachments was listed or included with Bolens tractors.  What does it take to adapt a Brinley plow or cultivator to a Bolens 1053?  I have seen several of these attachments listed in my area but no Bolens equipment.  :anyone:

Thanks much guys.  I knew there had to be something fairly simple.  Now to find one, or get a Brinley attachment and build one to fit.

There's someone near me in SE PA who has a couple of Bolens (one of them is a Brinly) sleeve hitches listed on CL. They have been listed for a while, along with some other Bolens stuff, but he doesn't indicate the individual prices. I don't know if he'd be willing to ship to Iowa, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

I also found this very nice looking repro'd hitch in S MI listed on CL for $140 and he is willing to ship. Maybe he is a forum member. I know of at least one forum member who has made them for others.

There's also one on eBay with a starting price of $140. So far, no bids with over 2 days left.

Good luck.

Here's one that's a bit cheaper.  Looks like you may have to make your own lift rod though.

Ad says that it was made by "Ohio Fabrication"

 

I'm guessing that he means Ohio Steel Fabricators, as they made sleeve hitches for the Bolens tractors that are pretty much identical to the Brinly ones.

Here's another one, even cheaper in NY. $20! Not real pretty, but it looks serviceable and like the one OB found, it probably needs a lift rod. It still has the stickers on it, barely.

Hay, thanks a bunch guys.  You have that stuff laying around all over the place out your way.  I checked the whole Midwest on CL and never found one hitch.  A few plows and that is about it.  Have checked with a couple. Will see what I get back.  I don't mind doing the clean up work as I have plenty of time to do it.

I got all the measurements so going to build my own.  I don't see the $140 +shipping asking price for these.

I could have sworn that there was a D/L in out manuals section that had a 'build your own' PDF for the sleeve hitch, but I sure couldn't find it.

 

Anyway here's a copy:
