Those are the small frame Bolens. They are tough tractors but were mainly for small yards and light duty work.

This is a pic of the 770. The 775 was identical except the 775 was hydrostatic instead of gear driven like the 770

That reminds me I should get my 775 out for pics when the weather turns around.

I just wondered over here from another forum. It's nice to see the interest in the old factory. I know a few people that used to work there and they bought out everything left when they closed their doors... now, if I only had more arms and legs to buy the parts from them. I only live about 20 minutes away and frequently drive past the factory. It seems that there is enough interest for a couple of pictures as it stands today. I'll see what I can do the next time I'm in the area.

Some pics of the factory would be awesome. I wish they still had their signage on the building. There are definitely a lot of Bolens nuts on here that would love to see pics.
