I was browsing through some Bolens material and in a 1971 brochure I found what I thought did not exist. For tubeframe Bolens there is a front mounted 540RPM PTO attachment and for the large frames a rear mounted 540/1000RPM PTO attachment.

The front 540RPM attachment is advertised to fit the 853, 1054,1254 and the 1256 while the 540/1000RPM unit fits 1477/76 and the 1886.

I don't recall anyone ever talking about them so I wonder if any ever did make it out into service.

Yes, they did exist

Both are not easily found, A handful of Rear Large frame kits are out there and Have only ever seen 1 Front Mount tube frame PTO kit in my Bolens collecting years.

I believe all the front mount ones were made By Roway manufacturing.
