Found this already sold today but have never seen one or heard you guys talk about one. Is this a greens mower made by bolens? Also found a clock I would like to have only $200.00. Here was a another nice bolens for sale. Sold around $150.00 worth today. Mostly toy trucks, a old bike, and a parts mower simplicity 627 with deck.
This sears mower was talking to me all day. This panzer sold for $750.00 early morning.
This rideamatic was sold and I mean it was a mess. Wonder what it sold for? I did see a very nice restored ridamatic that was going for $1300.00. So far we have had a very good day. weather was great and there are thousands of sellers.
My son went wth me and would not leave our setup. He had a good time selling.. I think.

Wow Looks like there was some great Stuff there!
I would have snatched up that clock and those older Bolens in a heart beat! You just dont see that stuff too often
That reel mower looks to be an early Bolens unit, probably one of their first reel mowers from the 30's or 40's Possibly even late 20's.

Did you take any pictures of that other Bolens that was by it with the steel wheels?

Was there also today. Set-up and hung around my stuff. Lots of sellers this year, not so sure on many buyers today! I saw a Panzer that was sold and wonder if that was your site? Didn't seem as nice as that one in pix tho. One tiny Bantam that sold for too much and fella wished he had more to sell. Those look so Junky and useless to me, I don't Get it with their popularity. Been up 24 hrs, worked Tuesday night all night and then to show all day. I'm hittin' sack early tonight and starts again in early AM! Not many looking at my Massey 1655 much, must be too far torn down for most appeal? Tire prices are out of site now days, even used ones going high. Haven't found any Speedex for sale yet. Did find one not for sale as a "Butt Buggy" for guy.

Do you mean this one? It was in very nice condition. All 3 of these old machines were sold. The Massey Ferguson was a 14 horse but had a hole in the block. He was wanting $200.00 as is. Would have made a great parts tractor for the price. I'm sure he would have come down a little. The cost for the 4 day event to sell was $20.00. $5.00 to get in if your not selling. I can drive in with a trailer and park right in the middle of it all. Spent 8 hours there today and can't wait for tomarrow.

Yes, the first pic you posted in this second group is the Bolens I was referring to.
It looks to be a later model "A" These were the first garden tractors to be sold under the "Bolens" name and were built from the 1920's - 1954. At first I thought it was an early Gardener but judging by the wheels and gas tank location I think its the model A

Ok here are todays finds in the field, bolens only. So far I have seen 4 ridemasters ranging from $200.00 with no wheels, to $1300.00 fixed up with decals and all. Only 1 rideamatic so far. I love the big tractor that was up in the air. Someone had it over the top of the 5th wheel on thier trailer. I have to say this tractor was on a higher plain and looked very neat standing tall. Some of the other stuff was in bad need of repair or were parts tractors only.

Here are some other photos of the show. I must have had the luck to be parked next to the guy that was buying all the neat stuff. His trailer sold out the first day and then he started bring things back with him. He realy had a nose for the odd or hard to find items. It was apparent that money was no option for him.
The little John Deere with the bucket was nice. Another Panzer I think I saw 3 different ones.
Did find 1 Massey Ferguson 7. Guy wanted $160.00 It was missing the shroud on the engine.

This Oliver Town and Country was very nice. I was told they only produced it 1 year. 1972 I believe?
All in all another fun day. I have sold around $175.00 worth of stuff and having fun at the same time, you can't beat that.
