Ok lets see how many Bolens were made I know there is a registry but alot of the tractors are missing needed info.

So here we go

Tractor model-
Remember early bolens had two model numbers like a 1250 was a 197-01 197-02, or 197-03.

Tractor serial number-


Engine make-
Model number-
Serial number-

With my factory paper work and the numbers given out I can about get it down to about how many made with in the hundreds for some modals.

Highest serial number - lowest serial number = May be the best I can do for some models.


I Been doing this for Ridemasters and Ride a matics it has unlocked allot of info on those tractors.
