I decided its been a while since I did a group photo of all my Bolens and since I have added quite a few more since the last picture a couple years ago I figured I needed an up to date photo of the collection :D
These are all the tractors that currently run.
(Ones missing from the photo are 2 900's and 1 Ride-a-Matic) (Not running)

Here are the pics:

That's quite a purebred herd Brian! One of these days I need to do a photo spread of my herd. But mine is a mixed herd, not purebred.

Very nice Brian. Wish I had that many. You must have a big shop to store them in? I am like olcowhand mine is a mixed herd also.

The garage/shop isn't that big. I store the restored ones in the Garage and the others are kept in other sheds.
The only one that gets left outside is the poor H14XL but I do put a tarp over it. I dont have the heart to leave any of the others out in the elements.

Brian, those are great photographs. My favorites are the last ones you posted. I especially like the viewpoint of the last one.

Very nice collection.

Yeah that was the goal
The Tubeframes are all lined up by year but the first row is a bit out of order.

Very nice Brian. Are you going to bring the H14XL in from the cold and give it some TLC. I occasionally see those newer Bolens mowers for sale up here. The tube frames are rare and when one comes up for sale you'd better be fast or it's gone! Your signature says many attachments. Maybe some day you could show us your favourites.

Doc., That is a very nice group you have collected. It is nice to see them all in one photo. Thanks for getting them out and sharing with us.

What is the the first one in the second row, a 600?
