Hey guys every once and a while I have to transport two Bolens tractors at the same time. So I am going to build a simple winch combination system for my truck and trailer, Last winter I had to pickup six Bolens tractors, some of those were parts tractors and everything was frozen up on them and the tires where flat. It took three people to get them loaded and one of them had to go into the back of the truck.
Not fun!.....It took three trips to get everything home.
So Harbor Freight was having an Easter sale this past weekend, so I asked my wife if I could sneak out of the house on Easter afternoon and get some winching stuff. She said yes, so off I went.
I need to pickup a tractor this weekend that has a 18 HP Briggs opposed twin in it that I am going to use to build up a Bolens 1225 parts tractor into a Bolens 1825.
Here is what I picked up at Harbor Freight.
I have a friend who does electrical work and he gave me about 50 ft of #10 3 wire rubber cable and a twist lock plug set. He wasn't going to use this stuff because everything he does now is 4 wire.
It will be perfect for the 12 volt winch system. Here are the items he gave me for my project.
I will keep you updated as the project proceeds.
