When you look for your 3 point hitch make sure its NOT for the HT series,they are different,also Carlise makes a very good tire

Just as a point of information, BALLARD FABRICATION is making a copy of the 18010 3-PT hitch for the early large frames.  It doesn't show up on his web page, but you can contact him for pricing and availability.

Here's a vid of one installed:

.....I just looked at the 3-point with the receiver and the one with the sleeve hitch adapter. I am thinking that the receiver would be cool and then make a sleeve hitch that plugs into the receiver.

Looks like an Ark loader, more commonly seen on Wheelhorse's ,I have one on a HT20 and its a good solid unit, they made two different weight lifting capacities, the larger of the two has 500# , not sure what the smaller one was , sure someone will chime in on it. Look for stress cracks in the welds where the uprights meet the horizontal braces. I'm not sure on the models made for the Bolens, but the WH ones had a nice subframe assembly that went from the main carrier frame back to the rear axle and out the back for the ballast box. Also looks like the bucket has been 'extended'

Sanding is well on its way on my soon to be Bolens kids trailer. The body and interior woodwork will be Bolens off white and the wheels will be regal red.

Looks like I will be buying an fd-36 earthcavator after all. I found one tonight and then looked it up on u-tube. They are awesome...still need to pick me up a 3-point.

A bit rusty but nothing a bit of elbow grease and some paint can't fix.

That is a Johnson loader not a ARK.

Nice find

. Looks like maybe not. The seller is waiting on an out of town buyer who is trying to figure out shipping arrangements. If that does not work out it will be mine.
