Glad to see you got your manuals all in one piece. Definitely a nice piece to add to the collection and I am glad someone who really enjoys Bolens got it.

I'll have to put the scanning on the back burner for now... If someone needs a page for their tractor let me know and I'll see what I can do.

I believe the book has all ride-a-matic models and all walk behind models in it. Along with some push mowers, Mustang tillers.

Wow! That's an amazing book! Congratulations!!! Ever seen one of the old Bolens push mowers or that boxy looking riding lawn mower?



The boxy one would be the Ridemaster that replaced the other Ridemaster. :bash:

I have seen alest one of both for sale at one time.

I didnt know this before, but those are actual "Bolens 2 stroke Engines" They were called Power Pack engines, In reading this book I found out You could buy the Power Pack engine and it would attach to various attachments such as sprayers, tillers ect.
