Bolens Husky 1556

  • Hi All,
    This is my 1972 Bolens Husky 1556. It was purchased primarily for tilling food plots on my hunting property. Within days of owning it I severely broke it and had to replace the PTO shaft and half of the transaxle cover. That almost doubled my financial investment in the tractor. But got it done and it works great. Shakes a lot but sure tills nice.

    At some time in its life it was repowered with a HH160 which runs great so far.

    The tiller is another fun story. When I got it it leaked oil like crazy so I replaced most of the seals. Unfortunately it still leaks but it\'s not as bad as it was.

    Although I also got a lawn deck and snow blower with the tractor I doubt I will ever use them. Changing out the attachments is a lot of work and that is how I broke it in the first place!
