Would you gentlemen that own one of the HT20D tractors be so kind as to post your tractor's serial number?

 

I'm trying to get a feel for how many of those rascals Bolens produced.

 

Mine is: 2289/0100433

 

That would make it the 333rd off of the line.

 

ETA:

Also, if you know for CERTAIN in which year yours was produced, that would be a plus as well, since it appears that the -01 production run number spanned 1980 and 1981.

014.JPG 018.JPG 058.JPG this is what it looked like when i got it home and shortly after i got it running i started taking it apart. the floor boards were rotted out and it was covered in rust. i cut the floors out formed new metal, welded it in and alot of time and elbow grease finally got it back together.

Bolens started their serial numbers at 00101, so to determine which on it was off the line, just subtract 100 from your sn.

 

Powerstroker's would be the 87th off the line, and 1967's would be the 218th, while mine is the 333rd.

Bob, I'm trying to remember...does yours have the 'recall' muffler on it?

 

I guess I should post a pic of mine here as well.  It ain't as pretty as the other two, but should look better when I get the hood decals on in.

 

I'm pretty sure that mine has the original pre-recall muffler.
