The Bolens Husky 1886 marked a new paramount for the Bolens large frame. It featured a 18 hp (13 kW) cast iron twin-cylinderKohler engine beneath the hood. Dual hydraulics allowed for power blade angling and lifting from the driver seat. A new 54" center mount mower deck was easily mowing the most daunting landscapes ever seen by non-commercial property owners. Only made for two years, the 1886 saw a total of 5 production runs. The 1886-01 thru 1886-04 were nearly all identical with only minor modifications from time to time. All still used the Eaton 12 hydro-stat until the 1886S-05 which was fitted with the new Sundstrand 15 hydro pump.
