I posted this in the other Ebay etc. section - but thought I would post it in here as well for you Bolens guys. I apologize if I shouldn't have.

 

http://www.ebay.com/...=p2056016.l4276

 

I'm curious - is the dash layout with the tach etc. the same on the non export model? I'd like to see how the dash, gauges, etc. are setup on both of them if someone could post.

 

Thanks,

Nick

There was no 'non-export' model. The HDT1000 was for export only, and is the only HT23 based diesel with a tach. The HT20D dash looks just like the HT23 dash.

There was an export version of the HT20D called the HT22, but I don't know of anyone that knows what it's dash looks like. I guess it's possible that it was in multiple languages, but can't say for sure.

The first two minutes of this vid gives a good look at my HDT1000 dash.



That dash is a replacement so the decal isn't correct, but the location of the instruments is.

You can see the slot where the choke would be for a gas version . What's interesting is that the original dash had that same slot, but it was just covered up by the decal.

 

Here are some pics of the dash that a guy overseas sent me.  It shows the proper dash decal.

Is that a light on the dash? was it a factory option? were these metal or plastic?

 

Thanks for sharing!

The light is not factory.

 

BTW, that would be only the 3rd HDT1000 confirmed to be in the US.

Glad I already have one, and for a lot less than this one is going for now :D :D :D

 

I'm guessing that there will be a lot of folks that won't bid on it because of it's location.

 

That's even farther away than the one I got.

I'm placing my bet in the $3000.00 range.... it's already climbing fast. The pedal assembly is neat on these - and the lack of one for the left foot surprises me as well. The steering wheels are unique as well.

Let me clarify - I WILL NOT BE BETTING lol... i'm just guessing it goes in the 3000.00 range.

The HT20D dash looks just like the HT23 dash.

Well, not quite true. They are very similar, but the decal is different around the ignition switch on the HT20D. That Wisconsin diesel has a fuel shutoff solenoid, and the ignition switch has a position and marking for that. look at the Sam's Bolens website; the HT20D decal set that he sells is based on the ones on my tractor.

$3550.00... which one of you guys won the lottery? That's a lot of coin for a large frame.

Wasn't me, but it sure makes what I paid for mine look REAL good :D :D :D

 

I was ready to put in a $2,395.00 bit in the last 15 seconds, but it jumped to over $3,000.00 before I was ready to 'pull the trigger'.

 

However, I had contacted the seller earlier, and he had all of the manuals copied and printed for me. :dancingbanana:

 

They are in the mail now.  He said the cost is right at $17.00, and I'm more than happy with that.

Maybe not so bad for an ultra-rare Large Frame, one that supposedly was never intended to be sold in the US.
