Was looking through various owners manuals for tube frames and noticed that in the owners manual for a 1254 they show a protective cover - just wonder if anyone has one and if so could they post a picture of it?  I am thinking of trying to make one for the 1053 I am working on and would be interested to know the location and how many grommets were used in them and any other information - I assume that they were made out of a vinyl material similar to what was used for the soft cabs.

I have a couple, its basically the same vinyl material as the soft cabs they had, maybe a tad thicker

Red cover is a small frame one through so use that on the Ride-a-Matics and EK's

 

They were designed to blanket the whole tractor and touch the ground a bit.

That would be great to have each trac covered up

 

Again I doubt a cover made it to the the UK . If it did then would have rotted away by now

They are very heavy duty vinyl. Sorry, I don't have any specific details for dimensions. Pictured is a NOS cover I sold about a year ago that was for a Large Frame.

I really wish I had not seen this post, I didn't know you could get a Bolens cover and now I really what one :wallbanging: . Chances of finding one in the UK are slim to zero.

I would like to echo that and I am sure we are all interested to see the details.
