I'm sure you guys have seen the thread posted in the Garden tractor section but in case you missed it here it is: http://gardentractor...aturday-for-me/

Yesterday I drove 6+ hours each way down to NJ to pick up some Bolens parts from GTT member Bruce Dorsi. It was nice to finally meet , and get to talk in person!
Bruce went out of his way (almost 2 hrs each way) to pick up a Bolens HD versa-matic I had purchased from NJ and hold it for me until I could make the trip down. Thanks once again for doing that for me Bruce! :worshippy1:

I also got quite a few NOS Bolens goodies :D

Here are the pics:

Looks like you will have to put up a new shed to store all that equipment? What a score that was. Did Bruce have all those extras just laying around? What else goes he have because it looks like you cleaned out a dealer!

I REALLY like those attachments.

I think it's more fun tracking attachments down than the tractors.

Looks like you got some really nice ones there.

That's a really great haul and surely well worth the six hours each way.

Also

Three cheers for Bruce. What a great guy to do that for you.

The guy next door has 2 or 3 of the Wright saws

That's quite the score of treasures there. Some really neat stuff.
That sure was nice of Bruce, what he did there, for you. That's one of the great things about
this hobby. The really nice people involved in it.
