Found a H14 that runs good. Included was a 24 inch tiller. Did some trading, and I got to keep it. My snow caster hooked right up to it, but I will need to do some work on the lift bracket. It was meant to work with a manual lift. I hooked it up to the axle and pto, and it spun like crazy! I have a 32 inch tiller that I can't wait to try with it. Now I just have to find a place for it!

Nice tractor. It probably gets decent gas milage. If you drive it to Massachusetts I can find a place to put it!
How much snow do you get where you are?

The snow caster came with the 600, and it fits the H14. The one behind the H14 is a very tired old 1250.
I have great plans for the H14 in my garden and on my driveway this winter. The old girl will have to find a home here, but she appreciates being wanted elsewhere.
Last year we had a bunch of snow, even for west central missouri! I also have a push blade for my Sears GT 18, and both the ladies are going to have a warm place this winter in my garage.

I did some welding today. I added a lift arm to a sleeve hitch I had lying around. I hooked up a moldboard plow to it and the H14 did a good job of pulling it thru my garden. The 3-point manual hitch on my sears works just fine, but it is sure nice to just move a lever on the dash of the Bolens to do the same thing.

it would be nice if i could get measurment off your lift arm or even a trace of them on wax paper with metal measurment denoted. I have aan h16 and need to build both lifts. So if it works I would be greatful!!!!!!!!!!

I went out and got pictures....the sleeve hitch is 14 inches wide where it attaches to the axle brackets, and it is 15 long. the lift arm I welded on is a piece of 1/4 inch by 2 inch, 8 1/2 inch long bar stock steel. It is welded onto the sleeve hitch about 2 1/2 inches from the back of the axle bracket. To figure out where to weld it and the angle I needed I put the sleeve hitch on the tractor, held it (the sleeve hitch) sort of level, then locked the lift arm in place with a pair of vice-grip pliers on the sleeve hitch. It looked ok, so I tack-welded it in place, then I fired up the tractor and operated the lift. What I had worked, so I finished welding the new lift bracket to the sleeve hitch. I used the vice-grip pliers intially so I could see the lift arm in place on the sleeve hitch. The red lift arm you see came with the tiller. What you have may be different, you might have to try it out like I did to see what works. My tractor is a 1456, and I have a 24"bolens tiller that I am using the lift arm from.
