The other day I was told about a local farmer who has tractors he was looking to get rid of because he was moving. I heard about a John Deere H and thought, why not take a look. When I got there, I started looking at the JD and noticed two tractors in the woods. immediately I saw the grille of one of the tractors and noticed it was a 1958 Bolens Ride a matic. the other is a Page walk behind tractor. Not sure if the page has attachments but the bolens has a rotted deck and an almost new snow plow. Both are rusty but no rot with the exception of the mower deck. The tins are straight on both and both are complete. Pages engine seems seized but the bolens engine turns over and has good compression. I researched the Page and found very little on it and I have yet to see one with a hood. His had a hood similar to a David Bradley without the side fins. I offered $150.00 for the pair and he said he wanted $300.00. I said I would think about it and as for the john deere, The engine is seized, stuck in gear, and needs a ton of work. and comes with a rear plow, cultivators, and a sickle bar mower. I offered $500 and he said $1500. Are any of the tractors worth the money he wants. He is in a rush to get rid of them (needs gone in 6 days) but with prices like that he may be leaving them where they are.
