I like it! The barn and the collection. I was going to put up one of those this year, but ran out of time. It will have to wait until spring.

Lol that is my philosophy. Only problem is when you need the one all the way at the back.

Nice shed, and collection.
That's a heck of a steal, on the racking. I hope you grabbed it all.

Great looking barn. It's used? Good for you, because it looks great. Fill it all the way up.

55, I have paid for been given or traded for in the last 4.5 years some are just parts tractors but most I have plan for them lets just hope it not 100+ ten years from now....



So I'm going to take a guess and say all the Bolens that were within a 100 mile radius of you are now on your property :D

You need one of the fork lift attachments to put tractors up on shelves to make more room. There was a thread on here back in the summer showing an old Bolens dealers place that was falling down. A fork lift attachent was sitting there. Did anyone have any luck getting in touch with them?

With a barn like that it makes me want to head out to the garage and start cleaning things up and getting organized. I don't know about you all but I found myself looking rack by rack at all the goodies (large and small) that are on the shelves. It's almost as good as being there. Thanks for sharing.

The thrill of the hunt is fun. The occassional unexpected find makes up for the ones that got away.

I find two advantages to finding old Bolens. 1. They're so well built they last. 2. When they brake they're too heavy for most people to move. (Removing the axle pin is a secret most people don't know.)
