  I picked this old Bolens up for free :D  The engine is loose on it and the tire is like new!!! The drive system is froze up though. Anybody have any info. on these? This is my very first walk behind.

What you have there is a Bolens Handi Ho

Nice find, would like to find one myself someday, You cant beat the price!

 

We dont have the manual for your exact Model but this one should get you by http://gardentractor...olens-handi-ho/

If Bruce see's this maybe he has a manual for your model he can scan and upload for you.

 

Looks like your missing the chain guard as well but the rest looks complete

 

According to my literature a 10A-02 should be a 1950 Model with the Briggs engine rated at 1.1 HP

A very nice free find. Good luck getting the drive train unstuck and be sure to keep us posted on your progress.

Very nice! :thumbs:   Glad to see another one not end up going across the scale.

Wish I could find one around here, so I can swap out the Choremaster for a Bolens.  Those little one wheelers sure are handy in the garden.

Thanks guys. I am goingto see if I can get it running and then I will probably use it in the garden. I might repaint it later.
