Went on a road trip to NJ Yesterday to pick up a few Bolens items I've been buying the past few months. Big thanks go out to member Bruce Dorsi for Picking up/Holding the items for me until I had a chance to come down. :worship:

It was a fun morning getting to meet Bruce again and talk about Bolens :smilewink:

 

This trip was mostly for attachments but I also picked up a Walkbehind :D

 

First the plows:

1 Versa-Matic Plow

2 Ride-a-Matic Plows

That Power Ho looks in great shape!  I also see you got the shaft guard for the tube frame reel mower. You sure picked up some nice stuff to add to your collection! :thumbs:  Congrats on your haul!!

 

Does the Power Ho have the hitch on the back so you can hook up the roller and the cart?

A very nice addition to your collection. You must have been fully loaded on the way back.

How many tractors owners can say they have one of the first of a line?  Great scores!
