Given the scarcity of that model, whether anyone cares about pics of the decals is irrelevant. Thanks for documenting them.

:ditto:

Are these guys really that rare? I am aware of where one is located in Canada and the owner would be willing to part with it. It does need some loving. Just saw it on Monday picking up my tiller for the ht20. Gorgeous rusty beast it is!

You may have just started a mad rush from all the Bolens guys across the border.

 

I bet Jerome already is out hooking up the trailer.

 

I would be curious to know what he wants for it, too, though.  If Jerome doesn't take it I wouldn't mind having one myself.

When I found mine it was only the 2nd that we knew of here in the States.  Since then another one showed up on eBay.

 

That makes 3 the we have definite photographic proof of.

 

I have been contacted via PM by a fella that says he owns one, but I haven't seen any pics.

 

There has been one other member here claim that knows of others, but when I asked him to provide proof, he remained silent.

 

As for overseas, it seems that they were more popular in the Scandinavian countries, but even there they aren't all that common. I've also seen pics of 1 in Canada.

Well, I am sorry to let you all know I would like to keep the location of this one secret until I have the extra cash to pick it up for myself.
I will see if I can get him to send me a picture, though he isn't much for technology.

I don't really blame you.  They are special and unique tractors.

Last time you thought I took the tractor to Saudi Arabia.  Now everyone thinks the tractor has been done since last fall and I'm putting it to work. 

 

Who, me?  :angel:

 

Or four if he's smart

 

Or five if I don't get some days at my full time job with less than 12 hours on the time clock.  :wallbanging:

I'm betting that he got it done just before the winter got real cold, and now that the weather broke he's been out doing custom plowing with it.

 

I dropped it off with under 300 hrs. on the tach.  It will probably come back with 500+ hrs.  :D :D :D

 

OH, BTW Ben, I'm curious as to how you handled the rear wheel weights :poke:
