proud owner of an H16
Posted June 28, 2011 - 12:47 AM
I was recruted from another forum by bolens 1000, thanks Doc! The H16 seems to be in good shape and runs well. It also came with a mower deck minus the mounting brackets, a snow blower, tiller and a front plow blade. I can see that I will need some manuals as I am not sure everything is here. I would like to start by changing all fluids and filters. I cant find the drain plug for the tranny, and cant seem to see a oil filter for the motor anywhere? Also I cant locate any of the hydro plugs:confuse:. Also it looks like I can use the hydro to lift the plow and the tiller??? But dont seem to have the linkage?
Well as you can tell this is my first REAL TRACTOR but I for the am ready to learn! lots more questions, but I think some manuals would help.
By the way I payed six bills for the beast. Booya!

Bolens was first with the foot controlled hydro. Their hydro was smooth and quiet.

Here's the service manual:Tube Frame Service manual
This will show where all the oil drain plugs are.
And here is a partslist for your Bolens : H-16 Parts List
The hydraulic lift will raise and lower any attachment.
There are lift links you will need to attach to the lifting mechanism.

Here is the picture of the tractor and all the fun accessories. You can see the linkages to each accessory. Is this where the hydraulic arm fits? Does anyone know where I can purchase the hydraulic arms?

You do not need a lift link to raise that deck.

Nice looking Bolens you have there, and you are in very good hands with all things Bolens. Thanks Doc.
