I winterized my little fleet of Bolens. While I was out there I took a few pictures. I have never ran the 1556 single stage before. It will be fun to try it out. Last year I ran the 2 stage on my 1886. This year I want to try another single stage that I restored and see how well it does. Enjoy the pics.

No, it is a 32" Johnson Workhorse Loader Midget Model 10. It has a lift capacity of 300 lbs which is great for such a small loader. The width is kind of narrow but sure makes for easy tight area maneuvering. I picked up my large frame tiller and my tube frame tiller and moved them around this weekend with no problem. I hope to restore a Johnson 14 for a large frame someday. One of my 'to be restored' 1886's would appreciate it I'm sure :fing32:

Nice fleet
You don't change equipment you just change tractors.
Bet you got more tucked away, where is the HT20D.

I do have a few tucked away waiting restore. The HT20D would be an interesting project for sure. My next project is a 1974 E-Z VAC system w/8HP Briggs w/elec start. It is a very nice unit.

Thanks Jason, I am going to try out my single stage again this year. The big 2 stage will have a break. I would like to run it on an HT23 someday.
