There is a Bolens walk-behind tractor I remember from my youth and I'd like to find one again.  Only problem is I don't know its full name.  I believe it is a Bolens Power Ho, but that name apparently was used on a number of different machines.  I know it's from the mid 50's.  It's the model with two levers for drive engage and PTO engage.  It does not have a hood.  We had a reel mower deck and a snow plow for it.  There's a Youtube video of what I believe I'm looking for here:

 

Is that enough to narrow it down?  Is it still possible to find one of these?  Any clues would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome :wave:

 

The machine above is definitely a power ho, sounds like you either had an early one or one of the basic units without the hoods.

Depending on location they seem to be pretty plentiful still in most parts of the USA

Thanks!  That's good to know.  I guess I'll just keep looking.  Any idea of what a reasonable price would be for one of these?

Where are you located? I have a Power Ho that has a front plow blade and rear cultivator that I want to sell. It needs complete restoration. Engine turns over, not stuck. Located in Connecticut. Send me a PM if interested. Will part out if no interest soon.

I had 2 or 3 of power ho's. I got them all from folks cleaning out and we're going to the crusher. they all needed full resto ' s, I parted them all out online. you should be able to find one cheap, but make sure it's complete, finding certain parts can be next to impossible without buying another one

The one in the video is a 12BA power ho. They're out there yet. If you're still looking I could get you in contact with a buddy of mine. I think he has one he might sell.
