Thank you! Thank You! Thank You! French and Lawrence. I could not remember this company's name for the life of me. This is who made the "Trisickle". Awesome!!

WOW!

 

That's definitely a new one for me as well, and I thought I had a good handle on what attachments were available for the Bolens tractors.

 

I have a BIG binder that had belonged to the manager of the 'Allied Manufacturers Equipment' at Bolens and I haven't see that in there.

 

I'm going to guess that he wasn't 'officially approved' by Bolens.

Good thread. It's amazing no matter how long we've been around or the level of expertise... we still learn things.

Very neat!

 

Now I have to add this to my attachment quest! :D

 

Makes you wonder if there are any other odd ball attachments out there as well

I know that I mentioned it earlier, but here are pics of one of the really rare attachments:

 

The 18082 rear mounted 2000 RPM PTO unit for some of the large frames.
