Dad bought a wood chipper and a Brinly dump cart for his Bolens. The Brinly dump cart though I think is actually for a Cub Cadet. The wood chipper though is definitely for the Bolens. We got it mounted but we need a longer female u-joint to be able to hook it up to the pto.

We parked it in the work bay of the garage because I have a little work to do on the belt cover. Would be really cool to get the u-joint and have it hooked up for the show but I don't know if that will happen or not. It definitely isn't going to be the easiest to get on the trailer with it mounted either, will have to use my other ramp on top of the trailer ramps to eliminate some of the steepness.

Here are some pics, would love to hear some input as far as the pto shaft, did Bolens make a longer female one specially for this? I have a feeling we might be making our own adapter.

Would also like to get some opinions or confirmation on the Brinly dump cart.

The Chipper looks to be in great Shape!
That dump is definitely for the Bolens.
I'll do some searching and see what the part number was for that u joint.

If that dump is for the Bolens, how in the heck does it hook up?

Thats exactly what I said when I got mine. LOL


You will need to use the long pins for the tiller and attach them to the rear mounting tabs. Then put a bolt through the hole in the middle which attaches to the rear hitch.

I'll get some pictures for you

That makes sense now Brian. Thanks for posting the pics. Now he just needs to decide what tractor to put it on. Could put it on the back of the 1053 to go along with the wood chipper and maybe even a chainsaw for display.

The only problem is the shaft isn't square, it is a rectangle. I could get square stock and have it milled down and get a piece to wrap around it like a sleeve and weld it all together.

Those are cool. Thought about making one of those dump thingys. I have an old small wheel barrow that needs handles whic cost more than a new wheel barrow. I've got two others that are bigger, so this one sits. Need to see how they set up the frame work under it.

Yes I they were on craigslist, it was a couple weeks ago if not a month ago. Dad usually procrastinates to the last minute only to find the stuff gone but I think he might have been on vacation or had a couple of days off at the time and went out and got them.

Would also like to get some opinions or confirmation on the Brinly dump cart.


The manual for the MacKissac shredder is in the Manuals forum, as well as the info for the Brinly BB10 dump cart (you probably know that). .....It appears MacKissac provided the longer PTO joint, not Bolens, as it has a MacKissac part number shown in the manual.

MacKissac is still in business, as far as I know, and they may possibly have what you need.

A minor point, but don't consider that unit a "chipper." .....It was based on the MacKissac Model 9P Shredder, and rated as having a capacity of up to 1-1/2" branches. ......It does not produce chips, but instead shreds the material. .....The screen at the bottom controls the size of the shreddings. .....Various screens are still available for these units.

The MacKissac Model 12P was a similar unit with the addition of a side hopper and chipping knife to handle branches up to 3-1/2".
