When I was a teenager the older guys told me how to protect myself--oh never mind,I must be thinking of some thing else.

When I first read the title, I thought it was 'watch out for Bolens diesel'. Thought maybe you saw me blowing snow back to Heaven with it once.

Say you never posted a pic of that special helmet you wear when on that thing. Ben knows what one I'm talking about.

There's an old Bolens Rideamatic that has been sitting by the road for sale that I drive by for about 3 years. Never have stopped to look at it but I just might after the first of the year. Not restored yet but looks right for buying and getting it running. I like the old style GTs..                                                                Roger

I hate to mention the bad news but this disease spreads in the garage even when you are not around. If you have any sort of Bolens part or tractor in your garage you should quarantine it or the other tractors. They are not safe. I even have proof.

It's not a disease...

 

It's a gift from the gods, who have opened up our eyes and allowed us to recognize the unique and remarkable qualities of the best garden tractors ever made.

 

All others pale in comparison, and are inferior in every way.

 

All hail, the mighty Bolens! :D :D :D

The Bolens Disease have spread overseas and the UK Bolens owners are in a bad state; me in particular. All this Bolens talk on this most excellent forum have fuelled the disease even further I am afraid. Maybe another Bolens will cure me..........
