Scrounging through old materials and I came across this item that is a Bolens and to work off of any electric start tractor they made.

 

Let's see if anyone knows what it is.

Yeah, these were plug in electric trimmers made during the late70's to 80's

Could be adapted to just about every model

 

A handful of guys on here have them.

Toro did that too. They even had a holster on the tractor. Casey's Waldo had one (lost to history) but the bracket is still there.

Don't know if they sold very well, but I have two still in the box. I plan on mounting one of them some day just for grins.
