I don't have a 3 point yet but I looked up the model number and it showes it as a Bolens attachment. ? I have been chatting with steve myself on and off for awhile. I asked him for a tour about six months ago.

But if I may be wrong I could have an upset wife. She just doesn't see rusty old stuff the way I do.

It is official, i am the proud new owner of an earthcavator. Now all I need to do is sand it all down and refinish it and get or make a 3-point.

So, what color shall I paint the earthcavator? Red? Bolens white? The original color?

I agree with Jerome: the original color. The original color was yellow. Some of the ones that have been outside for a few years look gray, but on mine at least, that is the primer showing through.

Something along the lines of White-Oliver Yellow. Not as light as JD Yellow.
