G'day All from Down Under

 

I am a brand new member as of today and today is the start of a small project in restoring a Bolens QT17 Lawn Tractor.

 

I bought the Tractor in Sep 2013 and started to dismantle it today Jan 2014.

 

This Tractor is a rare bear in Australia and trying to find any local info is next to impossible.

 

I am hoping to get some answers here in GT Ttalk from people who have restored the QT17.

 

To start i would like to learn the History of the QT please?

 

Cheers

Nick

Welcome aboard! Glad you decided to join us here. Guy's more familiar with your QT will no doubt be along to help you out. I would strongly suggest to take lots of pictures as you take things apart and organize parts. You'll find info in the manuals section Here 's a link. Good luck and keep us up to date.

Welcome :wave:

The QT series was made 1979-1983

 

If you have a model number that will help narrow the year.

Welcome aboard. Your QT should be a good tractor for you. They were a strong machine and able to handle a lot of jobs.
