This time no one can claim that "It's over priced".

 

Starting bid at $200.00 and no reserve.

 

Pretty danged decent looking tractor and has a number of attachments.

Wow, I'm not a Bolens guy, but if that goes cheap enough I might be! Less than 2 hours from me. 

If anybody here purchases it and needs it to be picked up , PM me and maybe we can work something out. Tom

Well, not sure of machine, but the "Decorating" of it needs some work.  Gadgets to remove and re-paint would be on MY list!

Yes, someone did do a poor paint job LOL

 

To each his own I guess, If you look at an OEM machine the paint scheme looks beautiful to me!

Removing extra paint easier than fixing rust.

 

Yep, an -01 is what I'm gunning for.
