Practical Bolens? Anyone seen this? Is this a home built unit?

 

 

Its mostly bolens but the stuff on the back is home made.

How rare is a backhoe attachment? I talked to a guy who said he has a Bolens backhoe that was on a ht20 that he wants to convert to a stand alone backhoe.

There are a few of them around. I have one and know of probably at least a half dozen. Bolens did not manufacture a backhoe, so the one that came off an HT20 is most likely a Brantly backhoe.

As LP stated,they are out there but hard to find,not near as many as there are loaders,you can expect to pay $1500.00 to $2500.00 for a nice one not all hacked up,I have been into Bolens for over 15 years now and have only come across 2 to purchase,LP owns one of them that I bought and sold to him

Most use large frame collectors have one like me. I know of a couple dozen I found in my searches but I bet there more.

Which will make me jealous of you, if that matters.
