I've seen some earlier posts regarding the Bolens Farmer. I happen to be the proud owner of one. Here are some photos of it. I would appreciate any scanned brochures or literature you may have on it, as it will be completing a restore this summer. Thanks for looking.

Welcome to GTTalk Nikk  !   Those are two nice walkbehinds you have :thumbs:   Is that a steel wheel right behind the plow ? Is it for transportation or some kind of gauge wheel ?

Thank you guys. (Alc) Yes it is a steel wheel behind the plow. When you raise the plow with the lever it transfers the weight to the wheel to make it move easier.

Nice machine!

I already sent you the info I have on the farmer, hopefully someone else can provide a manual maybe for you.

 

How long have you been into Bolens? What other machines do you have?

(Gunstuff1000) It's difficult to estimate how big it is, that's why I took a photo of it next to the AR6. It's definitely a beast.

(Bolens 1000) Thanks again for sending that info over to me. I greatly appreciate it. I have numerous Huski Gardeners, a few Hi-Boys, and few Power-Ho's. As far as non Bolens I have several Gravelys and a Standard Twin.

. Are your high boys rubber tire or are they on steel?

They are all rubber tire. I'm pretty sure the flat frame Hi-Boy I have should be on steel, but unfortunately the Wheels were not on it when I got it. I will take some pictures this week and post them. The one is presently in pieces and hanging in the spray booth. I'm just waiting for the paint. I should have it painted and back together in a few weeks here.
