I want to thank Stewfisch for giving me the opportunity to get this tractor from him. He was telling me that when he was just a boy that his dad picked this up at an auction and he remembers his dad letting him ride on the handle bars when they were plowing. The heck with safety, huh? The things we did when we were young.

 

I think this is from 1946 as shown on the tag and has the Wisconsin AB 3 hp engine (someone correct me if I am wrong). As you can see from the pics, I got the turning plow, disc, cultivator,and snow plow, which I think has a different attachment point from the manual that I have for it. 

 

As I said in my other post, the thing that amazes me about this tractor is the sheer weight of it. I think that it weighs 370 lbs according to the manual and if you added an implement would weigh close to 500 lbs. Sheesh!!

That's a great find and it's interesting that the Huski was not spelt with a y at the end unlike its later counterparts (Bolens Husky).

There was also a Bolens snowmobile I believe from the late 60s it was called the Hus-Ski

Are the handles round or flat? Interesting choice on the serial number but the engine was built in 47. The first engine that year was 739xxx.

Nice tractor!

The implements are harder to find than the tractors and looks like you got a great selection

DougT - the handles are round. The square bars that you are seeing are part of the implement attachment point. This has a roller on it similar to a David Bradley.

My dad had one of those.  Always carried a hammer to rap which ever clutch that would not dis-engage.  Ours had a trolley wheel bolted to each wheel for weight.  Unstoppable even when it nosed over.
