i recall canadian tire selling these a few years ago
where is this auction as i would love to buy this oddity
gord near huntsville ontario,
best to reply to parallax@vianet.ca
as not at a high speed connection to use this forum all the time



This morning, I ran some items to the auctioneer's business premises and dropped them off. Naturally, I took a look around since I was already there, to see some of the early arrivals. The auction won't be held until the 4th of next month but items are showing up every day.

The Bolens has no deck with it but has an O/H valve Tec engine under the hood. I've never seen that model of National before. It looks more like a GT than the traditional ones that are little more than a seat, motor and three reels. The one that really caught my attention is the one that looked more like a go-cart then a riding mower. The seat adjusts by moving it forward or rearward. There are 3 positions. This unit has 3 speeds forward plus reverse. I think that the deck is maybe 30 inches.

The Italian tool carrier is a bit of an odd duck too. I've never seen one of those previously, either.

Just thought you guys might find the photos amusing.
