I would like to nominate my Bolens HT23 (not sure of the year).
First off, this was mowing great until the pulley went out on the gear box, that is why the mower deck isn't hooked up.
I just set it all in place for the pictures because I didn't want to go through the trouble of hooking it up.
I bought this Bolens a month or two ago, it was not running and the engine was lightly stuck.
I got the engine loosened up, replaced the starter, rebuilt the carburetor, rebuilt the gear box on the mower deck and also replaced the dash (original one was plastic and was broke out). It's now running nice and smooth with no smoke or any other issues.
This is the first Bolens that I have had, so far I really like on how stout it is, (they sure don't make them like this anymore)
I have spent many hours working on it and I have enjoyed every second.
Can't wait to get the bugs worked out of it and get it mowing again.
Also in a couple of the pictures is my Kubota L2000 with 60" finish mower, right now it's doing all the mowing until the Bolens is fixed.
I would like to get a 3-pt set up on the Bolens, I also have a front mount blade off of a John Deere 140 that I would like to get modified to fit on there and I also have a Hustler snow blower that I am also going to put on it.
I took the second to last picture right before the pulley went out, just to prove it was mowing!
Last picture is when I brought it home
