On a serious note though, there are a lot of knowledgeable Bolens guys here and if we don't have the manual already in the manuals section there is a good chance one of the guys will have a copy they can scan.

I have a partslist for the 960 Tractor but nothing on the attachments.
If this Is what your looking for I can upload the manual.

I have a paper copy of the 960-01 manual. This owner's and operator's manual is 121 pages. The good news is that it is complete - operation, maintenance procedures, adjustments, parts lists and exploded views. All this information not only for the tractor unit but for the grader blade, mower, snow caster, and accessories/optional equipment.

This manual is for the following model numbers:
tractor - 960-01
blade - 19603
mower - 19601-01
blower - 19602-01

I will try to get this scanned and uploaded by the end of the week. Any tips and tricks would be appreciated.

Scanning them into pdf files is the easiest way. Scanning to images takes too much effort to get put together and converted into pdfs.

Wow that would be great if you could upload this!
Information is pretty scarce on these GK's
We have around 6-7 members with GK's on here and I am sure this would be a big help to them to have the Owners manual!

That is very kind of you, and your offer is greatly appreciated !!!

The best place to upload them to would be the Bolens Frame-Steer folder in the Manuals forum.

Congratulations Dwayne on such a fantastic find. I'm looking forward to seeing your restoration at a future show. Pictures as you do the restore would be great.

Dwayne, I didn't even realize that was you. What is funny is I knew you were a member but never posted and dad said something to me that you had posted for the first time and I know he has told me your username a couple of times. Thanks for posting the pics and congrats on an awesome find. Can't wait to see you get this one restored.

...Because this thing is just sheer AWESOME, that's why!! lol. :thumbs: Great find, man! Where in the heck did you ever find these? I take it someone originally had two of them and tried to keep at least one of them running with parts from the other. I'll bet they were fun to try and load up on that trailer, especially the accessories for them. They can't be light. Good luck with them, can't wait to hear the progress on them. Does the more intact one with the hard cab on it run as it is or does that need a lot of work as well? Are you even going to attempt to get BOTH of them working or you'd be lucky to just get one working unit out of them?
