Looks like at one time there was a 3 point hitch on the tractor,that's what the 2 green brackets are for above the name Bolens on the housing
That's for mounting the shredder/grinder. The 3-pt would use the same bracket though.
My ground level control just seems to turn and turn, how is it supposed to behave?
By "turn and turn", do you mean you can do that by hand?
If so, then it's loose. It should only turn when you raise and lower the deck or other attachment. It's an indicator, not a control.
This thing needs some agg tires.
Are you thinking about looks or traction?
If you are more concerned about traction than a "Pure AG look" there are some ATV tires out there that work great for traction and are a lot less costly than "true AGs".
I've been using CST ANCLA ATV tires on my large frames and I really like them. They have a deep, aggressive tread and have awesome traction. They will really dig in and pull.
I have a set of 26x11-12 ANCLAS on my HDT1000 that I use for plowing. Although they are 1" narrower than the 'stock' 26x12-12 tires, you really don't notice that visually, and they are a lot cheaper than the 26x12-12 tires. As an added bonus, they have a "Husky Dog" as part of their logo. Goes well with a Bolens Husky
And 26x12-12 for $99.99 here:
