Hi Guys!

Rescued these two little derelicts recently. They were scheduled for the chrusher. One on right is a bolens Power Ho...manual available on this site. Need replacement wheels as the factory liquid loaded tires really ate the rims up! The other is a Ward's Chor Trac, manufactured by Midland. Info seems hard to come by on these. Anyone have Midland manuals? This one is #MID M-10891. Also needs a Wisconsin ABN engine. Looks as if I have a couple of projects!CraigL7.jpg

Glad you were able to save them from the crusher!

If you have a model # on that power Ho I should be able to tell you the year

Thank you for making the "save", and thanks for posting the pictures. I have a Power Ho with the same ailment.

Thanks for saving the old girls. I'm sure they'll appreciate it.

As for the manual, I think this is the closest we have so far: http://gardentractor...-trac-1945-600/

Nothing Beats a free Tractor and saving it from the Crushers' Jaws makes it even Sweeter...Well Done.

Hi Bolens 1000!

The Bolens Power Ho is Mod#12BB01, Serial# A28807...have found no markings on the engine...shroud is missing. I believe it is a Briggs NPR6? but can't confirm...it does have the built-in gear reduction on the side!~ Any help appreciated!

The one on the left has the same handle bars as mine does.
