I volunteer to do a 3 year case study on 1886 frame cut outs. I will need at least 5 of them. Contact me for the location of the nearest Fastenal you may ship your 1886 to.............. :D  :wave:

Well, I have been really searching for a Bolens iseki or an older kubota with 4x4, I have decided that it is worth the wait to find the loader tractor that will better suit my needs.

What is the load rating on the Johnson loader? 

 

I have my relief valve set to lift around 400lbs. That's when the rear of my tractor starts getting light. So far the loader has held up very well.

Like Wilburj says keep moving when turning with a load, just like using an old car without power steering. Also that big cast iron axle support in the front is what you want to be careful about. It can crack  if you run into holes with the front tires or do anything that wants to twist the frame rails. That casting is bolted onto the frame rails on both sides with two bolts. Check all around that area to be sure that casting is not cracked. You will need to look inside under the front where the pto belts and pulleys are. With a flashlight you can peer in there and just see the inside of the frame rails where that casting bolts on. They typically break along where it is bolted in sometimes you will see the pto pulleys sort of free floating if it is cracked. Here are some pictures of mine when it broke on my HT23.

I do love my Bolens and will always have a LF or a couple of them, but, I feel for the rugged terrain on my property and heavy work I would do with it, a larger tractor might be more suitable. Also, his price is a bit higher than I think it is worth. It is was price where I think it should be it would be here already.

I would agree when I seen it the price is high.
