Not being a 'Bolens guy', I would do all I could to get it usable. Looks like a very nice tractor for at least a refurb. I hope the tranny is a simple fix. I like it's name too!

Nice find, O.B.!

Did you just add that to your signature file, or do you now own two G11's?

What year(s) was the G11 made?

That looks pretty good there Ole B. It deserves a full restoration and will be a really nice machine whan you're finished. I'm looking forward to your restoration thread!

I added that to my SIG right after I got back from the road trip. :D
It's almost impossible to find information on the G11.
From what little I've been able to gather, it was only built in 1978.

I've been 'on the hunt' for one for some time. I missed a chance on one that was only about 10-15 miles from me. That was before I knew what a G11 was, and I' still :wallbanging: :wallbanging: over that as the guy only wanted $150.00 for it.

I paid quite a bit more that that for this one, but it IS one of the "Holy Grails" of Bolensdom.
