Glad it found it's way home. I'm sure the rest of the family will wonder where you went this evening.

Nice addition Brian. It's good to know that somebody with a great appreciation of these fine old machines was able to add to your library.

That's a pretty thick book you got there, how long is it going to take to go though it?
You need to start a thread on the little know Bolens stuff.
Looks like they were into just about everything.

Unfortunately There was nothing on the ride masters but a couple service buletins

I could have missed something though..... The Models are not in order.... Tube frame stuff in with the walk behinds ect. It figures..... Bolens had a confusing past to begin with so why not make it confusing in the Books ? LMAO :D
