My youngest son and I made a trip over into Ohio today. Should say we almost drove across the state it seemed! I picked up a nice Bolens DJ tractor and also got a Bolens Handi-ho tractor as well. The handi-ho is in pieces and I think after further investigation I'm going to just keep this one as a parts donor. The other stuff on the trailer I picked up for a couple other buddies. Both of which are on this site they can post better pictures later on. I will mention that the big Sears wait I mean the monster Sears strained my winch trying to get it on the trailer I kept praying that the cable wouldn't break because the young guy it came from was directly behind it I told him he better move fast if it lets go! image.jpg image.jpg

Looks like you did a-ok, Aaron! 

 

Anything left out there that you haven't bought yet?

What that steel wheel Bolens on ebay a while back?

I remember seeing one where someone painted the tank with the year on it not too long ago.

. Yep this is the one. For some reason he took it off eBay before the auction ended I always wondered what happen to the tractor and the other day it ended up on another site so I struck a deal for it Whole thing will need repainted since he has the wrong color scheme

What, all the way to Eastern Ohio and didn't buy a Speedex????  That's what I usually go for. And you're not far from me either, so know how it goes. I usually use highway 30 or 224 to go accross, what one you do?
