I have been offered a Bolens 1468 in mint condition , 300 hrs on it , snowblower , deck , PTO kit , wheel weights and chains for 600 from the original owner . Is gear drive with natural lift . not sure if that's a good deal . any feed back would be great . He wants it out tomorrow (Tues 8/19)

If it really is mint and only has 300 hours, it sounds too good to be true. The reference says that it is around 1990 and is a B&S  engine. It may only be a yard tractor or a lawn tractor, I'm not familiar with that era, I thought that it was earlier. Good Luck, Rick

That is probably a good deal. It now becomes a decision by you, if you want it and if you can afford it. You can't get much for $600 anymore. Good Luck, Rick

I see that vintage Bolens for sale up here quite often. They don't seem to sell as well as the older stuff. Look like a good solid tractor and that one is in great condition. I would buy it if it was near me.
