Prices were unpredictable, auctioneer took forever, was drawn out way too long. Generac front tube frame pto generators $875.00 and $825.00. Skid of Ridemaster cultivator shanks w/ clamps and a moldboard plow $25.00. Complete non running 84440 snowmobile $50.00. Rough but running GK's w/ attachment about $1400.00 each to name a few.

What did the show quality GK go for? I am glad you got to go, did you get the items you were looking for?

I was there. I would agree that the auctioneer was very unorganized. Jumping around too much. I bought a versa matic for $55, the rough ridemaster for $30.00 and the 62 ride a matic for $475. And a few other mics. Parts

The restored GK had a reserve and was a no sale. It went up to $2600 and the owner said he needed $3200.

The Mott went over $500.00,pretty rusty,had some holes in it,there were a few good deals but most stuff went pretty high,Thermometer I think went for $160.00,2 advertising umbrellas over $150.00 ea,pretty dirty clock that the second hand didn't work $275.00,an average HT-20 over $1,100.00,NOS parts went a little high also (IMO),still had a good time,got to see some fellow Bolens guys I hadn't seen in a while,some pretty serious buyers on some of the stuff for sure

For some reason a green working Ride A Matic with mid mower but without tag only brought $250.00. I only got 4 small items, should have made a couple more bids on some cheap things but didn't. Now I know what to sell some things for down the road.

We were going to try and make it up to the sale but didn't. Money just isn't in the budget right now and we have too many other irons in the fire. I am glad some members from the site made it up there though :D

I would have bid on that ride a matic if I didn't have one already. It was a good deal on that one.

I was there yesterday as well, probably talked with some of you and didnt know it :D I know a couple of you guys I spoke with mentioned you are on here though.

 

Was a good day with alot of great items, wish I knew PA was about 12 degrees cooler as we left the house it was about 55 degrees and when we got to the auction it was about 44 degrees at 6am!! Not good T-shirt weather :D

 

Pricing stayed about retail for most of the stuff, generators got a little crazy as It was me an one other serious guy but where are you going to find another? Definitely overpaid but sometimes you have to if you want it.

The only other thing I was absolutely shocked at was the brinly dump for the Bolens that went over $500 ! Someone must have really wanted that or didnt want to loose at bidding! The auctioneer was very disorganized and took from 8am to nearly 4 to wind everything down.

 

I hope Bill (The Seller) did well on the auction sales, got to talk with him a bit and he is one heck of a nice guy and very knowledgeable on the Bolens line

 

I walked away with a decent amount of Bolens NOS parts as well as a few misc items and some advertising goodies, still need to un pack, left the house at 1am and hadnt slept in over 36 hours, slept 11 hours this morning :D
