IMO bolens was one of the BEST producers for lawn and garden equitment the next one you should get is a hydro ... 1256 H14 -H16.. i have 2 and will drive the hydro over a geared anyday .. But they are Awesome machines made to work

The manual for repairing the Bolens is http://gardentractor...anual-552875-1/ available for free download. Check out a couple of the brochures too.
I have 6 tube frames and 3 large frames. I think that the Bolens are very strong and versatile. There are a wide variety of attachments and almost everything is available for the tube frames. You really can't go wrong with a Bolens. Be sure to grease the bottom of the steering. BTW, try a large frame sometime. You will want one. Good Luck, Rick
