Did they ever offer an electric PTO on these tractors? How do you adjust the manual one on these as well? mine slowly engages..so I have to hold the lever down. I'm sure it is a simple adjustment, I just hadn't gotten that far since I am still in the paint phase of my restoration.

How did the cruise control work on the HT's? I just about bid on a unit for a later model bolens.. but decided I had to many other projects to mess with.I haven't seen any pictures of one installed either.

Thanks,
Nick

To the best of my knowledge, the HT series never had an electric PTO.

The earlier HT's had a "hand control" that could be added to the tractor on the left side of the dash tower. It was connected to the right-hand travel pedal via the cross shaft. I don't know how cruise was arranged on the later HT's.

I almost bought one of the hand controls off of ebay. I noticed some HT23's online with a switch on the dash that said cruise. I was told they use some type of magnet system which is interesting and I would like to see pictures if anyone has them.

No electric PTOs on large frames .. ever as far as I know .. with the heavy duty shaft driven attachments .. there would be no reason to have one that I can think of
