Neighbor came over the other day wanting to sell me his garden tractor, for he had not started it for two years and wanted it out of the garage. Well to make a long story short, I bought it with a front blade, 60" deck, cultivator, and service manual for $500. It also had newer tires on it and part of the 3 point lift which was nice. But my question is, what does a rear pto look like? Looked through the manual but didn't see one and was wondering if someone has a picture of one or can direct me to one? And help much appreciated.

I have an 1886 (earlier version of the HT20). I'm pretty sure it's the same setup as your tractor (great get, by the way!). It doesn't have a "rear" PTO as such. It has a front PTO and a center PTO. Attachments requiring a rear PTO have an extended drive shaft that attaches there, such as a rear tiller attachment. I'm sure there will be lots of responses to your inquiry from HT20 owners. Nice tractor!

The rear PTOs were an option for the large frames.

There were two types. The 540/1000 RPM unit could not be used with the 3-PT hitch as it used the same mounting points. The 2000 RPM one could be used with the 3-PT hitch as it bolted to the transmission housing.

Here's a pic of a 2000 RPM one:

I don't have a pic of a 540/1000 unit, but here's a link to a manual that has a good pic:

The Operation and Maintance Manual is the one that has the pic.

Thanks guys for the replies and the links. I assumed it came off the front similar to the tiller shaft for my Bg Daddy Wards, but a picture is nice so as to get a visualization. As for the tractor itself, this is the first Bolens I have owned and must say I am stating to like it. Actually just added some fresh fuel, jump started it, and away I went with it. Did replace the cable on the choke lever yesterday for it was sticking, but all in all a nice tractor. Already gathering up a few things to make the 3 point arms which will make it even handier.
