Bolens HT23 Garden Tractor with Brantly front-end loader and backhoe. 1980 I think.
I’ve had it for around 16 years and it has done some great work for me in the past.
I have a bag of manuals for all of it.
I had it running around 4 years ago when I took the pictures. Did a little digging to make sure it still worked because it was sitting idle for 4 years, and it did work.
There was a carburetor or fuel pump problem at the time because I had to put vice grips on the fuel hose to restrict the flow a bit for it to run right. Then I couldn’t get it to run later and I just don’t have the time anymore.
It’s been sitting in the garage since.
It has a newer backhoe bucket.
It has a newer hydraulic pump coupling.
It always operated fine when it ran.
It’s a great vintage garden tractor with lots of life left in it.
I don’t think it needs a lot of work to get it running again.
I’m asking $3000.00 for it or any best reasonable offer and you would have to come pick it up.
It is located in Quaker City near Cambridge Ohio 43773. I live about 2 ½ hours from where the tractor is. So, you’d really have to be interested in it to have a look at it.
