Made a trip to Des Moines today to get several things from different places.  Main items were to pick up a Bolens sleeve hitch and a Brinly cultivator with all shanks and points included.  Only items missing are the anchor plates and wedges for the shanks.  But I got both pieces for $50 and his wife helped load it ! :thumbs: .  Even had the lift arm for the hitch.  So if anybody has a couple pockets full of plates and wedges and want to lighten their load keep me in mind.  Haven't unloaded them yet so will post some photos up tomorrow some time.

I got it unloaded and grabbed a couple photos this morning.  They will work for now but need to get cleaned up and a coat of paint on them.  I probably won't use the points for this one as I have another set of shanks with shovels on them.  Will use them for the first few time through weeding.  Then the gardener will come in to play.

Had a photo of the Bolens label but it didn't come out clear.  :mad2:

 

Will get a photo or two of the lift rod this afternoon.  Didn't see the request till a couple minutes ago.  Sorry about that.

They are not hard to make at all.  A 1/2" pipe will just slide over the 5/8" rod after the end are clean up.  I have made two and they both work good.  I cut the slot with a cut off wheel in a 4.5" hand grinder.  A file dresses it up good.  Hardest part is the flat end that attaches to the lift lever.  Had to heat it three or four times  and do some heavy pounding to get that end flat like I wanted it.   The second one I built I used a piece of flat iron for the tractor end.  Made it a lot easier but didn't look as nice. The lift rod with a slot is for a thrower or blade.

What is the slot for?

No slot on the one for the Sleeve hitch.  It was the other one I made for the snow thrower..  sorry, I should have clarified that.  The throw and blade need a slot for the float position.  The tiller and hitch use the rod sliding through the sleeve on the hitch for float.
