I am trying to find out some information on a Bolens Super Mustang model #2066 01. I can't find much info on it surfing the net. I got it from a friend and it doesn't run at the moment. I don't know if it is worth fixing or what. I have some pictures of it. Any info would be helpful. Thank you.

Welcome to GTT!

I should have a manual for this that I can scan and upload for you

Pictures would be great if you have them  (We like pictures here ) :D

 

The 2066-01 Should be a 1959 Model with a 3HP Briggs and Stratton engine

Wow, Looks like its in real good shape for its age!

With a little degreaser I bet it will clean up and look great with that original paint :thumbs:

 

What are your plans for it?

:welcometogttalk:       That tiller is in great shape! I think it would show nice after you clean it up a little or get it running and use it. I'll bet it would run circles around some of the new ones you see these days.     Thanks for the pics!  :thumbs:

I am not sure what to do with it. I am not a collector. I just got out of the military and bought a house out in the country. The ground needs turned before I can plant anything in the garden. I was going to try and fix it to use but I am not sure that I would be able to. It looks like it would be a good tool to have but I just don't know that much about small engines to fix it.

Partner, that's exactly how alot of us started out when we tuned in to GTtalk, and that simple humble admission is what opens the floodgates of knowledge with the Guys who do know. Good 'semi specific' questions usually start the ball rollin'. And I'm gamblin somebody or 2 around here would be more than willing to take er off your hands should you suddenly decide it's not quite your style...

:D  :poke: :rolling:

It seems to me that it would be worth more to some of you guys than it probably ever would to me. I don't even know what something like this is worth. I know it's worth a tilled garden to me but beyond that I am clueless. It looks nice to me but I don't have much use for something that looks nice but doesn't do it's job.
