Why, oh why would they have done something like this?
I have one of the 18082 2000 RPM PTO units that I want to put on the HDT1000.
I was lacking the piece of bent flat stock that holds the sway chains, and when I mentioned that in a post here, ClassicBolens PMed me and said that the had on and would sent it to me.
It got here today, and once again I have to thank him for his help.
However, I now have another problem.
Bolens, in their infinite wisdom, decided that instead of just using the standard PTO shaft to connect from the front of the tractor to the attachment, that they would use one just for it and nothing else
Here is what it looks like. It uses the standard lock-on part at the tractor end, but at the attachment end it just slides on and is not fixed in any way.
