appx 70" bolens deck - $700 (chili ny)
we have a bolens deck appx 70", 3 blade, was originally a regular mower deck, was modified into a pull behind. does still need some work, but would be good for someone with a large yard or field.

Extend the bodywork, and have at least an 80" deck!  :rolling: And $700????   Maybe he meant to type $70.  What a numb-nut!

People sell crap like its gold and gold like its crap will never figure dummies like this guy out. So let me tell you how this guys thought this up Well I went to tractor supply and I saw this thing called a tow behind mower. I think they called it a finish mower I said shoot I can build that cause I took and failed shop class in school. I used the deck off my dads bolens I blew up don't matter what size it is cause I can't read a tape measure anyway but it will be cool. Then I forgot I don't know my butt from a hole in the ground about welding and I ain't got no common sense so can you buy it for 700 dollars cause I need snacks weed and video games. Thanks for looking at my add stupid people like this guy are a dime a dozen.

Tim

OK,  so it is a 70" deck but did the blades get changed out or is it still only a 42" cut?   :deadhorse:     :smilewink:  :spamani:

This guy has missed his calling. He should be stretching dollars instead of mower decks!

And we just keep rolling with the crazy Craigslist ads!

 

This tractor is aparently "Fully Restored"

I wonder what his definition of "Not restored" is!

I will never understand why people ruin these machines with engines 3 or 4 times the original HP.

If some is enough, too much is just right! :D
