Saw this on ebay. It had the buy it now option so I couldn't resist the price of $14.99

This will come in handy for pictures I need for the article I'm working on.

This brochure is for the 1963 lineup.
Which means it will have the 600 and 800:bounce:

I'm glad you got one that you wanted Brian! Does that one complete your collection? Is there some way that you know how many were made, or do you just watch for them and see if you already have that one?

The goal is to collect all the Brochures featuring the tubeframe lineup which were made from 1962-1978.

So far I have:

1962,1963,1964,1966,1967,1968,1969,1970,1971 and one that covers 74'-75'

I also have a few misc. ones that were made throughout the years.

I am not familiar at all with Bolens tractors. In the one pic above, it shows a worm drive, but pic is small to see clearly. Is the worm the final drive? If so, there's no pushing the tractor unless there is some sort of disconnect? Maybe I'm seeing it wrong.

You are correct all the transmissions are like that.
There is a
free wheeling pin that you must take out to be able to manually push the tractor. Other wise you will be attempting to push over 600 pounds of old iron without the help of the wheels :D
