Hello folks, I am new to the bolens tractor thing and just picked up a 1253 to work on and play with. It came with a front mount reel mower that need alittle TLC to become a nice show piece. I was wondering if anyone interested in trading a complete mower deck setup that will fit my 1253 tube frame for this front mount reel mower? I do not have the time to restore the reel mower, it looks complete to me and does turn but needs to be de rusted and cleaned up, would make a nice addition to someones collection. I live in southeastern Mass, let me know if there is any interest.
Adam

I am interested in purchasing the reel mower and perhaps those funds could be used in a purchase as many Bolens accessories and attachments are available out your way.

You can contact me via the message center

Yeah it is, but, they are made of wood, so it shouldn't be all that big a job to make new ones.

Here's a pic of mine. You can see that it should have 3 rollers.
