Will you elaborate more on the green deck and maybe your best guess on the year? And sorry about the mistake on the deck size I didn't realize so thank you for that information. Is there anything else you might be able to enlighten me on

Can you further define the green deck for me and is there anything else you can tell me?

The Green deck is probably around a 64'-66' It has a belt cover from another series tractor. After taking a second look I think its from a lawn keeper.

I guess I'd say thats a bad thing value wise because it has the wrong Belt cover on it.
Its really no big deal though because decks and their parts are a dime a dozen, so If someone wanted an original cover they could easily find one.

I'll get pics up as soon as I can. But right now I'm trying to work on it to get up and running but an end price or an estimate would really help me know how much to spend fixing it up


Ok Bradley I am going to give you my best shot at your original guestion.
I live in Colorado and there is a shortage of Bolens out this way so prices tend to be higher here. How much higher? 25% or so on average compared to the east coast lets say. I would price your tractor running, with the correct deck "the black one"between $350 and $500. If the tractor was in great working order $350 is as low as I would go. The green deck I would sell seperately for $100 to $150. You claim that you received a plow and a tiller with the unit but do not mention it up for sale? If the plow was a original bolens, sold seperatly I would sell for $250 to $300. I it is a sleeve hitch plow without the sleeve hitch $125. If the tiller is in good shape $300 to $400.
Keep in mind that I have not seen these impliments and am assuming that they are in average,maintained condition.
If all were sold together $600 to $800 and it would be tough to talk me down lower than $600.

I hope this was of some help, it is not easy putting a price on somthing you know so little about. But your bottom line was some ball park figures so there you go !!!. I do not have the knowledge that some on the forum have so if I am off on my numbers please correct me guys.

The tractor only needs a good key switch and a good cleaning. I'm not planning on selling the tiller or the plow but I'm interested in selling both decks. I live in a more rural area that might create more of an interest if it matters but thank you very much.

:ditto: what member speedyg said above

Since Prices vary in different parts of the country, It is pretty hard to estimate what something is worth which is why I usually try and refrain from responding to "what's it worth posts"

I'm trying to sell a 1970 bolens lawn tractor with a universal pto output a 50' inch mowing deck and a trimming blade. I don't know much about it and was hoping I could have some help pricing it so I know how much money I should invest in it to fix it up.

It's a Bolens Husky no amount of money is too much to restore it
