I just picked one like it up the other day. I won it on eBay for $158.00

No, it's NOT a "garden tractor" I'm not going to be able to plow snow, plow the garden or do much else but mow. But it's a cutting, leaf sucking up machine !!

Now I have 2 of them. One set up for mulching, and one set up with a high lift blade and bagger.

The one I just bought had a bagging set up on it, less the bags which I had from a junker I bought cheap a few years ago.

There will be NO pictures posted of my big a$$ driving it !! Maybe I'll get a few of my 10 YO daughter on it though.

I heard they were very costly when sold new in the 90's.

So, let the stone busting begin !! Scott, watch your tone young man !!

Ken, I think that is a great size mower to let your daughter drive around, and good size to trim with. Being a HONDA, it should last a long time. :thumbs:

I'm not sure why you think I would lob out an insult based on your purchase of the new-to-you sucking machine.
:angel: :angel: :angel: :angel: :angel:
I certainly wouldn't say that is likely you rented a Civic hatchback to go get it. Nor would I suggest that if you did use the company van to retrieve it, that you didn't have to move or remove anything in the back to get it in there. Furthermore, I would not comment that if did not fit on a shelf in the fore-mentioned van, you would let it ride on the passenger seat; with it's steering wheel hanging out the side window.

And never, ever, would I post that I think it likely, that if left in close proximity of your Bolens overnight, you would only be left with small chunks of aluminum and fiberglass the next morning.

It deeply saddens me to think that those thoughts would even cross your mind.

Congrats on the new mower! :yelclap:


I can't stand it. Just one, though:

You should put a strongly-anchored seat belt on that. Then, if you encounter an obstruction, you can simply put your feet to each side, and walk the mower over the obstruction. You know, like a 1x4, or 1/2 plastic tubing.

I'm so sorry. :(

Yes, it is cute. If it fits your needs, good. From the picture, it looks to be in very good shape. I hope it does what you want without problems.

Ken, Glad you got a usable machine, regardless of the size.

I had to read your first post twice because of this sentence...

leaf sucking up machine

then I realized you meant to use the singular... as in one leaf at a time.

I'm with the above fella's that there's no reason to throw stones... probably best if we don't, it'd never be able to drive over them.

LOL you guys kill me.



That thing looks like someone painted a snail red and strapped a seat to it.



But all joking aside if it does the job go for it.

Photos of the actual one I bought. And Scott, it fit neatly in the back of the Van, along with all my tools and stuff.

Notice it has a sand filled weight on the front end, to stop the wheelies when the bags are loaded.

This is a fun thread, guys!

Kenn, I know what you mean about the wheelies on these. I have a Ford R-11. Without the deck on it, it does great wheelies.

That machine doesn't look bad either Ken. Although it is a bit pink where it is faded. Perfect for you daughter. Congrats again.
