Eliminator is right! Not sure what was "eliminated" from this cheaper model, but they seem OK too for me. QT series is another. I don't KNOW the brand, confusing to me actually, but like looks of the late ones. NOt a fan of the Tec engines in them, but can't avoid that in most of them. Never had a WI to know a thing about either.

Mine was a H16. Still got it and love it so much I have bought three more H16's.
Just realised that this picture may provide some further information to questions that were posted about the UK importers of Bolens, Howard. I was curious about the Howard decals, so on this tractor I careful removed the Howard decal to reveal the standard Bolens decal underneath. I stuck the Howard decal on the hood and several years later it is still there. In the picture your should be able to see the Howard decal and the Bolens one.
