Bolens made the high boys as far back as the model A tractors I got literature showing them using a model P Briggs engine on them I think the dates they show are not accurate at all. I do know the 1,2 and 3 after the HB stands for the width you can adjust the wheels out to yours would be the widest model for that series Later on Bolens made a high boy that would expand out even further that model would have round handle bars. I have the same tractor you got except mine is on rubber tires which were optional

Interesting,

 

What is the front bar sticking out for on these?

I'm assuming you could run flat belt equipment with these as well.

 

If you have any copies or literature to sell I'd like to see them !

Man, that is awesome!! I've never seen an early one like that before. Was it restored? What a cool machine. Can't wait to see and hear more about it! :thumbs:

. I'm not sure on that bar thing haven't ever seen that before I wonder if maybe it could have been some sort of bracket for a front counter weight I will have to go thru my literature and see what I can dig up

 It would be neat to see any brochures or sales flyers .   Do the wheels move in and out for different row widths ?

Yeah they were adjustable, the guy who gardened with this last dished the wheels in for a narrow crop garden, I'm thinking about flipping the wheels around as it will look a bit better like that.

With just looking at the pictures,Is that bar able to slide back to give more room for attachments.One picture looks like it is hooked to another piece and would not slide back to far,but maybe if unhooked and another hole to mount it too?Just a guess

The front bar is attached to the rear tool bar section and is able to pivot side to side

Where did you pick that up from and how much did that set you back?

Picked it up down in Belmont NY, A gentleman in his early 80's had it and planed to paint it up nice but he decided it was time to part with it and was happy it was going to be cared for, I promised him I'd take pics and a video of it when I get it driving as he only got the engine running and never got to see it move.
