I don't like to play favorites. Maybe we should start a thread on our least liked?

That's the problem with being mono-brand. It's a good reason to go buy another brand so you have a least favorite. Bob did say you didn't have to own it.   :D

The more I think about it, how do you think the other Bolens are going to feel when they find out your most favorite is the one that gives you the most trouble? I wouldn't want to be in your shoes when you try to start one of the others!!  That's the main reason I don't play favorites. Anything that will start and propel itself is my favorite!   :bigrofl:

For me it is a brand: the Waterloo.  No surprise there.

That smallest tractor is interesting. Is that related to a planet jr tuffy or super tuffy?

Neither.  It is a Waterloo Boy (model 182).  From what I can tell, it is basically a re-badged Supper Tuffy.  It has the Briggs 6S engine.
