Brian and others, has anyone diagnosed what color green Bolens used on the HT series "forest green"? 

 

I will match it if no one else has done the leg work. 

 

This is for OldBuzzard's HDT1000.

Rustolem Deep Forest Green is a close match. Not perfect though. Some have had an exact match made up at napa. Don't have the code for that.

I've used the following on my HT23 almost a perfect match.

Hay Husky!
Is that a Johnson 14 on there?
I see no rear weight box? Just wheel weights are enough?

Thanks for the rustolium paint names.
I'll be needing that as I've just about worked through my mechanical issues!

They also have the Green and White at NAPA for the 80's machines

Its the only "Stock" Bolens color that they have in their computer system.

Yes that is a Johnson 14. Those rear tires are filled with heavy foam they came off of a forklift. They weigh in at 175lb each. Plus the 50lb weights make them 225lb each. They are great I don't need a weight box and all the weight is on the ground, not on the rear transaxle. I feel this is the best way to put weight on the back.
