There are probably tens of thousands of people looking for early 110 round fenders and most people will never get the rare tractor they are after but that is what makes the search so exciting in my opinion.

 

You say you have only been searching for a few years?

 

been collecting for over 10 years but looking for this tractor since I first heard about it

I found this one - I don't think it's an HDT - but it does say "Diesel" in the description... http://delaware.crai...4208912654.html

Here's a vid of the one that was on eBay:



From looking at the Operators and Parts Manuals it looks to have the right muffler, which appears to be the same as the "Recall Muffler" that Bolens used for the HT20D.

As far as I can tell, the hood side decals are wrong, and it's missing the HT1000 decal on the loeer left corner on the front of the hood.

That's an HT20D.

2-cyl is the biggest clue. Plus you can see the fuel filter under the left foot rest.

With it painted like that it would be easy to think that it's an HT23 at a first glance.

Most likely a DGT1700, an HT20D, or even one of the Iseki/Bolens, but ya never know.

I'm sure they are out there - where there is one - there is another. I think we'll see more, mainly because someone with one probably just saw the recent amount of money one turned over on ebay. Undoubtedly someone will be questioning how much they'd like that little extra money for a down payment on a newer unit lol. 

 

I think a good comparison is the infamous "bolens mufflers" - in the last 4-5 years i've seen them raise in price.. because of this I believe we have seen more of them listed. If they were only worth 50 bucks - less people would take the time to list them. 

 

Anyways - if you ever part with one of those yellow beasts.. let me know.. i'd love to help you make room for a diesel.

Yep, If you make a big deal about your purchase or let people know how much you paid or how much you really want something, you will soon see some come out of the woodwork.

I have seen this happen on alot of Bolens Stuff the past couple years.

 

Best thing to do is not post prices on this stuff in the open forums.... May be too late though as price inflation seems to be in full swing now a days.

There's more out there..... You've got many more years to track one down.

 

I think the word rare has lost its meaning anyway. Every Ebay and Craigslist add you see has the word rare in it. To me rare is when only 1-5 exist, not when 8+ are known because there are usually double that amount still around yet to be discovered.

 

I hear you there.

 

How many G11s popped up in the past 2 years?O.B. has 3,Brad (nascar3244888) has 2,I have 1 and I know of 2 more.

 

I wish it wasn't rare because I would like to find a PTO pulley,PTO brake/belt guard and a few other parts for it but you just can't find stuff like that.By the way O.B. the G11s ARE beasts lol.I just put a set of rings and valve guides in her.She's got alot more power than I thought it would and super easy on fuel.

Yeah, the PTO parts are hard to find.

 

I know that Rick Show has at least one of the Guard/Brake bands.

 

As for the pulley though, I have no clue as to where you might find one.  Two of my tractors have the proper pulley, and the other just has the earlier single belt one.

 

Fortunately, everything else on the G11, except for the engine, is identical to the G10, so other parts are easy to get.
