I just came back from buying a tractor out in the Des Moines IA area.

It's a very rare (in the States at least) Bolens HDT1000 that was supposed to have been for export only.

I've only seen one other posted about and that was over on the MTF forum.

The interesting thing is that he found his in the Des Moines area as well.

Turns out that my tractor actually has a/the dealer tag on it.

Would anyone know if this dealer is still in business. If so, I might be able to get a little more history as to how it got sold here in the States.

Here's a pic of the tag:

Buzz.
Cannot read that on my phone. I have several racing buddies in Des Moines that will know the place if it is still there. I also have a buddy in Norway with a Bolens.
Pm me the info off that thing and I'll do some E-mailing to see wat I can find out.

I called the Beaver Mower folks. They knew of the other place but they are long gone...so I guess that's a dead end.

Thanks for the help though, I appreciate it
