Wrong color paint, and priced WAY too high.  Looks to be in good condition though.

If you're going to paint it the wrong color, the seller made a fine choice.

Aw come on, you guys know that's a steal!

The loader is worth 4,000 alone right?

The guy probably got the price from some of the "quotes" hes seen on here about value.........

Looks like someone had Case 646 envy when they painted it. Looks really nice in that colour although not authentic.

well I just see a case 224 a while ago with the same set up for $6500 and crazy as it sounds 3 older sears tractors with just FEL from $3500 to $5500 all had kwik way loaders that's it, but try to find 646 or 8 with the same set up your looking at 6500 to 8000 I've seen and anything with a backhoe is gold that simple all I say is if that worked well on the backhoe side of it if I had I'd give it, have you guys seen the prices of a terramite $8000 to 10,000 on average then once and a while you'll see $5500 to 6500 but its beat to heck

I'm surprised Bolens didn't paint anything industrial yellow. 

 

AMCJAVELIN has a point.  The similar Terramites (and I say similar just as far as what it does) are priced like he says.  The Terramite is not nearly the tractor that the Bolens is.  The Terramite has only enough transmission to drag itself around.  The Bolens ought to do that and dig while its at it.

 

If all the hydraulics are rebuilt/good shape and with the good rubber, he's probably got that much in it just to get it where it is.  That is a fine paint job even though it is yellow.

 

You've got to remember that a TLB is not in the garden tractor category except by accident.  It is a specialty tool.

Just think how much he would be asking if it was painted green and yellow.... :bigrofl:

 

It is a good looking setup. That backhoe would be the crown jewel for me when I build my big fish pond next year!

Can't say as I remember ANYONE ever saying that a loader was worth $4,000.00.  Most I can remember was in the $1,500.00 range

 

In fact, I haven't seen anyone say that a tractor AND loader was worth that much. Well, unless maybe it was one of those 'green things', but the 'green guys' live in a different universe than the rest of us  :D :D :D
