Has anyone else noticed that the Sonny's Bolens site is gone? It doesn't even come up when I do a search for it. smiley-confused013.gif

Even though Sonny's has been out of business for a while, the old site was a great resource. I downloaded a number of manuals related to my machines, but the site was one of my go-to places for anything else Bolens related. It will be sorely missed. frown.gif

I think all of the Bolens manuals that were available on Sonny's site are available here. It is a shame to see another one go and it is amazing how fast the domain brokers scarf domains up.

Yep, site is now gone

Only a matter of time as that place was getting sketchy and crawling with malware and popups!

Actually, our manuals section has everything that is on that site and a lot more.

Where is the new owner from, Chile?

The drug lords are buying up all the domain names  :(

 

I did a google, same person/group owns a bunch of domain names.

 

Sorry Sonny's is gone. There was a good Sears one a while back too, it is also no longer.

:ditto:

 

Why did you use Sonny's name?

Pretty weird and especially since it has nothing to do with that former business!

 

We already have all those manuals here by the way......

There was one additional page that I would refer to on the Sonny's Bolens site. That page showed you the years of manufacture for most of the models Bolens made and how they were equipped. Now I wish I had saved it somewhere.

 

The manuals section here is far superior.

Someone came on here posting a link to their website using the  sonny's domain name. Must have bought the domain name when it expired and for some reason they are using it as a link to their site , I guess since the name is out there they figure they will get in the search rankings faster :wallbanging:

The Service Seminar Manuals have all of that information.

Yeah, I know that, but it was easier to go to the Sonny's page if I did not have ready access to my literature.
