Scroll down & you'll find articles on various GT's. All OLD articles. I loved reading through Dad's old stack of Popular Science & Popular Mechanics books when I was a kid.

Thanks for the link Dan. That was very interesting. I came across some re-printed push mower ads the other day in a magazine called "reminisce". They're pretty small print though. Four full page ads shoehorned into a single page with other print to boot.

Nice post. It's great to go back through some of the old articles. Nice Cub Cadet material there. I'd never seen that before.

Good find, Now if I could just remember where the box of my dads old Popular Mechanics is at. Oh, and mh81 it wasn't just the Bolens lady in pumps, they were all over dressed. lol
and was that golf ball retriever bit an atachment for a bolens? I could make a fortune around here with one of those. lol
:worshippy1:Thanks to that article, I now know about "controlled differential" :dancingbanana: that'll sure be handy sooner than I'd like.

Thanks for posting That Daniel!

wqdl573, I do not believe That the golf ball retriever was a Bolens attachment.
If anyone wants to see the full color pic of that Bolens Lady, just look at the Brochure in the manuals section LOL

Are you trying to insult Member Maynard with that comment? :mad2::mad2::mad2:

He has an extensive collection of pumps and never drives one of his Bolens tractors without a pair on.
