She isn't pretty, and it sat outside unused for at least 7 years that I know of. But it is the last year they were made and it has low hours on it.

I found this tractor for the guy selling it over 10 years ago in one of the yahoo Bolens groups. He paid REAL good $$ for it when he bought it, because it was absolutely cherry when he got it.

He's a long time friend, and I've done electrical work for his company for close to 15 years. About 80% of my work comes thur him.

Anyway, he had it listed on eBay, and I found out so I called him. It's no longer for sale on eBay because he and I made a deal. I'm picking it up tomorrow. She ain't pretty, but just wait and see what it looks like in a few months.

No, yesterday afternoon I called him. Rite after it was listed. It took him till this AM to pull it. I emailed him a link on how to do so. He must have been busy up till an hour or so ago.

He's about an hour from me.

When I get time to search, I'm going back thur old yahoo threads from when he bought it. It was perfect and came with other attachments that he never got the time to go get, by the time he could, I think the guy sold them again. It had a loader and a 2 stage blower with it.

It was in the Yahoo HT group I think. Not sure if Bobby B deleted stuff after it sold or not. I'll look tonight if I get time.

Yes, tiller included. That makes 6 large frame tillers for me. Anyone need one ? PM me.

It also comes with a weight box, 3 point hitch, cultivator, mold board plow and a few other odds and ends. I do believe that my Johnson will be going on this tractor. It's on a non power steering HT-23 now. I can't wait !!

Wife is none to happy. "Yea, just what you need, another Tractor"

But she really dont care, she's the easiest going women I've ever known. She pretty much has to be to be married to me. : )
