Something built by a John Deere collector?

 

Possibly homebuilt with parts from a Bolens Gardener

I bet the Bolens tag is from a Gardener

Not even close to being a Deere. I kind of like the look though.

Check out pic 4!  Dual chain drive rear axles!  The two rear axles are not connected.  They seem to be fixed at the mid tractor on a spring loaded torsion bar system.  Awesome for the time period.

Love that layed over trans!  Could that be a two wheel tractor, made into a four? Looks like foot rests there, kinda doubled up and linked tubes? Not sure if acutally move for pedals?

Very similar to the Bolens Gardener

You would think after all that work he could've put a new shift knob on.

Poor Bolens!!!

 

Looks like it started out as a Gardener walkbehind then someone took a hatchet to it :(
