For Large Frames, I would guess that both the Bulldog trencher and the Danuser CD-1 post hole digger would have to be considered rare. And of course the Johnson forklift conversion.

 

I am up to 7 found Johnson  forklifts I been trying to buy the one for 2 years.    I seen a dozen of the trenchers aroundIknow 3 big bolens guys own them yours being one.    That post hole digger of yours I have yet to see another.    :thumbs:

Not sure what you're talking about, Willis. Ben and I agree 95% of the time. The other 5% of the time? He's wrong!

 

 

You sound guilty...

Bean cutter. 1000 bucks.

 

Way to much for as many there is out west and for how many was made. 

 

Another guy with a bunch of attachments.

 

 

I need part of that grader blade to make mine work!   May be you can buy it and send the part off it I need to copy and I can send it back.  I'll pay all the shipping.

Well, opinions, religious denomination, politics and so on ,I guess fit the definition of rare in there somewhere and expect similar results in the debates that ensue. One man's trash..... I say this , it's good of you to offer your findings or willingness to 'be on the lookout' for others wants. A far as a list some things are unobtainable, some hard to find and ,some misrepresented by uninformed owners or individuals looking to flip 'barn finds or 'estate sale gems' etc . You see something you find interesting post a pic, if it's for sale post it under the appropriate heading. Give a heads up if it's a Bolens or fits one . I'm pleased to acquire one owner original machines , unmolested, original paperwork, sales slip etc. Your 76 whether or not it was a one owner machine it is clean and by its appearance was well taken care of.To me that is getting 'rare' . So keep posting, keep asking , and many thanks for your volunteerism ! Now get out there and find me a nice Bulldog Trencher for a Large Frame.( There will be a finders fee in it )

someone just told me they had one for their LF. We shall see.

Jerome, do you know of a dozen of the trenchers for LF's? Or a dozen total for all makes? I only know of three for the LF's: Sam's, mine, and Bobby Bruneau down in the Carolinas.

Someone just posted a trencher on facebook - but it is either home built or modified to work on a Bolens. I saw Jerome comment on it.... its definitely not a bulldog

I would buy it if I was near by. If it worked I could use it.
