I just bought a Bolens HDT1000. The model number is 2388s.

It's basically a HT23 with a Mitsubishi K3D-61FG, 3-cyl water cooled diesel.

It was supposed to be "export only" but at least two of them have surfaced here in the US.

All of the instruction decals on the dash are in 4 languages.

I would like to fine any documentation/manuals for it that I can. I would be especially interested in the owners/operators manual,

If you guys could check out any Euro GT sites for info I sure would appreciate it.

I haven't taken any real good pics of it yet, but there are pics or it in this thread over on another forum.

Ok, try our best. But first some questions / explanations.
  • In Germany the brand Bolens is very seldom. Could the tractor be sold under an other name.
  • European GT sites are also seldom, at least german speaking sites (from Germany, Swiss, Austria, Luxemburg and also the Netherlands).
  • Do you have a photo from the instruction decal(s), so we know were the GT has been sold.
  • Maybe our scandinavian friends know more about Bolens :smiley-flag003: (sorry, no danish and norwegian flag here :wallbanging: )
EDIT: found a pic with german instructions - so the HDT 1000 must be sold in the german speaking areas in europe.

2. Edition: If I find something about Bolens, then there is always a note to MTD... that's not good.

Sorry Buzz, didn't find anything. As said before, Bolens is very rare in the german speaking area. Bolens only exists here in context with MTD. But I didn't find any Bolens dealer to ask him...
