Well me and the gent that owns the bolens ht20D with a 3pt is calling me back when he's done dinner... its out in texas but I'm ready for a vacation lol and I been wanting one since I found out they made them. Until I got a computer I've learned a lot and I owe it to this site and the wonderful members... thank you for all the help and support. We came to a price of 800 with the 3pt. its not a bad looking tractor at all. The only down side is no power steering. it has ag tires on it... do you guys think 800 is fair? oh yea it also has the 2 speed hydro.

Assuming it's in decent running shape, $800.00 is a VERY good price. Especially with a 3-pt on it.

My HT20D doesn't have PS and with a 54" front blade on it doesn't steer all that hard. The HDT1000 does have PS, and it doesn't seem to be all that much different from the HT20D.

Do you have any pic s of it yet?

I'm not familiar with prices in your area but anytime you can get a healthy Diesel GT for under 1000$ with a 3pt. hitch you are in good deal territory IMO. Good luck with the deal!

I'm no Bolens Guru, but it looks good to me. A little TLC and it will be your friend.

Looks like a Diamond in the rough if you asked me! Even though I haven't owned a Bolens yet I would Give him $800 with out hesitating.But that is just my opinion. All our Expert Bolens members would know better than me!

Good luck! I hope everything works out for you! :thumbs:

Yep, that's the Wisconsin WD2-860 which is the proper engine.

Why aren't you already on the road?

If it was me i would pass for that price with what i have read on the other forum about it. For the price and cost to go get it you could find one in better shape. Matter of a fact i know where one is that is in near perfect shape for not much more then what this would cost to go get this one and closer two you. But this is just my opinion.

Sam, if that was a running tractor, $800 would be a better than decent price for it. BUT, like it was noted above, it seems that the guy who has it now cannot get it to run. It is hard to diagnose why it will not run from hundreds of miles away, but the current owner also noted on that other forum that the starter started to drag as he kept trying to get it to run. I got very lucky with a bad starter on mine: after about 6 months of searching, my local auto electric guy was finally able to find the one part that he needed to fix mine somewhere in Canada. The point being that if it doesn't run now, you might spend lots of $$$, and lots of time searching for parts before you ever get it to run, if you ever do.

Even so, I am the kind of guy that would go for it. Maybe you are too; certainly you have the years to work on it. :bounce:

I didn't know that's the tractor that he's talking about!

I'll have to revise my opinion....I wouldn't touch it. WAY too many things wrong with it.

Sam was talking about an HT20D in Texas. I am assuming that the one on the other forum in Texas is the same one, but I could be wrong. Bob (bhts) was mentioning a different one that was closer to NJ, but more expensive out of the box.

Yeah, the one in the OP is the Texas tractor. Those are the pics that are on the other forum, and the one I'm referring to.
