Went to the Alexander steam show last weekend, first two days were great but the weekend was horrible weather wise.

 

Found some goodies at the vendors section on Friday :D

 

Bolens Saw

 

Wisconsin manuals

 

Bolens Distributor Binder

 

this is a very neat piece with alot of behind the scenes info and some good writeups on local dealers , I sure wish I was in business back in the 60's and 70's it sure seemed like a fun time, every month the top selling dealers would get trips to Europe, Hawaii and other locations as well as attending dealer dinners!!

Also talks about the ever increasing prices on parts as well as dips and rises in the market

It sure sounds like it! Neat to be able to appreciate and preserve that documentation and history. :thumbs:

Are those chainsaws built like their tractors? If so that must be one hell of a workout to handle them,

Can you still find parts for them?
