Cant even think that Dad and I have have 59 bolens tractors and one chain saw. with 22 large frames and 12 of them are 1886.  6 are ridemasters with a long list of tube frames to help fill the list.

 

 

We have been very luck in my hobby and we both have had great times doing it.  I hope I can stop buying copys and look to the harder to find stuff so the numbers dont keep going up so fast. :D

That's Great Jerome, I am very lucky to have my Dad in the hobby with me also. It really makes it a lot more fun and really seems to enjoy it.

You know I was at a stop light one day and a 18 wheeler went by all paited red with a huge international harvester logo on the side. It made me think what if I pulled in with a unit like that all painted and full of bolens. :D

Congratulations. When I saw the title I thought you meant years! I looked on your profile and you have a lot more tractors than years in your age. That's impressive, and as rare as any of the tractors in your collection.

Question then: does that mean you are close to having the largest Bolens collection in the country?

yea I would be more looking for attachments now, you got more tractors then 10 men can handle... ii don't know how many attachments yomentsu have but I would guess you don't have enough attachments so you can have one on every tractor,,, when i first started collecting I was just into the 650 to 1250 tractors, and the LK, EK, and GK when I first found out they were made, when I first started it was hard to just find a dozer blade for a (TF) I never thought I would have the collection I have now

This hobby is definitely addicting. I used to give my Dad a hard time when he'd pull home different tractors. He has everything from Cat crawlers, to cubs, and some GTs. When I went with him and seen the Bolens 1000 and brought it home, I haven't been able to stop looking. Its fun and a good time spent together. Congrats on hitting 60.
