I'm going over to Archbold, OH tomorrow to get a new attachment for the Bolens.

It's a 'goodie' called a HANG-N-HAUL. It will work with a sleeve hitch, or Cat 0 3-pt.

Here's an advertising vid, and a link to the Ad on Craigslist.

I figure that since I got that sleeve hitch as a 'bonus' with the 1256 and Ez-Vac, that I should have it 'earn it's keep'.

Should be right handy for moving 'stuff' around. I'm thinking of picking up some free pallets, and putting my various attachments on them to keep them off the ground, and make them easier to move. I'm thinking that I might use the H-N-H without a platform and use it like a fork lift to move the pallets. I might have to extend those arms though.

I'd REALLY like to use it with Cat 0 3-pt, but I'm not sure that there is a 3-pt setup for the tube frames.

Started building something like that without the tip-up a year ago... never got it finished. I was building it for sleeve hitch, may do it for my SS12 3pt instead.

Thanks for sharing. Interresting.

Yeah, and at just $120.00 it's very affordable as well.

Thanks Old Buzzard for buying the Hang-N-Haul. This is an attachment we started making to be able to use on our collection that includes Amigo's, Cub Cadets, Sears, and Wheel Horse. If any one needs one give me a call. Enoy!

Hey Dean, good to see you here on the Bolens forum. Oh, the eats at the restaurant were great!

Just like when I am buying tractors, It seems like buying attachments includes rain as well :wallbanging:

As a matter of fact, I'm not even home yet. Alternator on the MH went out, so I was relying on the generator, which will charge the car battery to keep it running. However, it only trickle charges the car battery, and it's not enough to keep it charged if you use the lights.

So, I spent the night in a service area on the Ohio Turnpike. Got up this morning, and yep...RAIN.

Since the rain was pretty light, we set off to wards home, and are now at a garage getting the alternator replaced.

Any way, even with the trouble, it's not been a bad trip.

Dean is just a "Good old Country Boy" like most of us, and likes to talk almost as much as I do, so we had a nice visit when I was there. He also sold me a Cyclone Seeder (at a VERY good price), which I will post pictures of as well as the H-N-H.

I gotta say, that for what he's asking for the H-N-Hit, I can't believe that he's making much of a profit. It's built like our old Bolens. All REAL metal, and has a nice paint job as well.

I also got to take a gander at the trimmers he makes for zero turn mowers. Those rascals are well built as well.

Sorry to hear of the problems getting home, at least it was not snowing! Keep those Bolens running...

Thanks
