I have attachments with no model #'s on them, trying to narrow the search to what years the colors changed, or was it tractor model specific on some and not all tractors?

 

If you refer back to my Snowcaster post I have pics and model numbers listed on the Snowcasters I picked up this winter.

 

Trying to par them with the tractors I have. In other words which model go's with what tractors

 

Bolens 1000: 1965?

 

Bolens 1050: 1966

 

Bolens 1050: 1967-1969

 

Bolens 1225: ?

 

Bolens 1256-0 ?

 

Thanks Guys for your help!

If you are asking about snow casters specifically colors as follows:

 

1962-1963  - Metallic Gold

 

1964-1969  - Pale Yellow

 

1970-1972   - Red

 

1973-1979  - Black

 

1980- NLA   - Dark Green

Tractors: 1000, 1050, & 1220 would have had a yellow Snocaster for those model years.

 

The 1256 would have had a red Snocaster.

Thanks that's great info, that will help a lot .

 

Also I am assuming that the mower decks:

 

 1964-1969  are green

 

And the other colors for the other mower decks follow the same schedule as listed above by Bolens 1000? 

 

* The yellow Snow casters that I have are 18516-03 and 18516-05 does anyone know what year of tractor they would have been sold with originally?

 

* Last question I have a 1225 hydro, what colors would go with that tractor?

 

Thanks again for your help!

My mistake:  I typed 1220, when I meant to type 1225.

 

All of the brown/white tractors would have been sold with yellow snocasters, green mower decks, red dump carts, yellow snow/grader blades, green reel mowers, & red tiller attachments.

 

However, new, left-over, gold-colored attachments from previous years may have been sold for use with any of those tractors, if that is what the dealer had in stock.
