While I was visiting Andrew in Devon I collected this which was not too far away from him
A Brantly Back hoe complete with pump & mounting frame which came off an unknown make of garden tractor.
I had one of these in rough shape on the rear of a HT20 with loader which I broke up. The loader I am very slowly cleaning up to make it usuable again to be fitted onto my 1886.
The back hoe went to fellow bolens nutter Dave who has since found a couple more examples.
This one I have purchased has never been on a Bolens. It was found abandoned in a field!
It seems complete but requires work inc ram refurbs & pipes etc. Its rusty but very restorable.
Looks to me like it was red/orange when new?? its been adapted to fit onto something as theres bits welded on & sum one has attacked it with a gas torch on the mounting frame. I will have to adapt the frame it has to fit on a LF bolens & mount the pump up the front to drive it
Who knows when this will happen but happy I have found another. Proves this stuff has made it to the UK.
Only pic I have of it at the min. Need to borrow a loader to lift it out my trailer this week as those of you which own one know they are heavy tools
