As for the trailer, there s some evidence that Bolens DID NOT make their trailers, but that Ohio Steel made them.
Now it gets REAL interesting, as the sleeve hitch I got along with the deal has an OHIO STEEL FABRICATORS label on it, and it appears to be on there originally.
Does that mean that Ohio Steel may have made the sleeve hitches for Brinley-Hardy, or is it possible that Ohio Steel also marketed a sleeve hitch of their own?. Does anyone know WHO, if anyone has/had the patent for the sleeve hitch?
I don't think that Ohio Steel sticker was put on there just for grins and giggles, since the tractor and EZ Vac were sold in Medina which is in NE Ohio, and Ohio Steel is/was in Columbus. which is in the center of the state.

I can't see what they could do to 'get around' a patent either. The sleeve hitch is pretty basic, and there just isn't much that you can alter.
There was a coulter for a Brinley plow in the trailer under the hoses. The guy I got it from was the 2nd owner, and he didn't know what it was. I'm betting that the orig. owner had the plow and that the 2nd owner didn't get it from the orig.
Anyway, here's a couple of pics of the sleeve hitch.
