Started gathering Bolens about 2 years ago. Put an ad on the local swap shop wanting Gt's. This guy called with a cub with a bad motor and wanted to sell it and needed the money. So I bought it sight unseen and picked it up today. Ended up being a LT1018 Hydro in not bad shape. Worst is the handled on the left side is broke off and gone. New battery and spins over good, everything seems to work on it. 850 hours on the clock. Deck looks good, needs new wheels on the front. Main reason I bought it was the Mrs can run this one. Don't like the JD F525 and won't get on it. I have to have knee replacement soon so won't be doing the mowing for a while.
Will try and get some photos tomorrow. To dark now and wanted to get it under a roof.
On the way home from getting this one I stopped and looked at a B7100 Kubota with a crack in the block. Gets water in the oil. Probably a 12-15 yo machine. Inside and other than dirty and being manual steering looked taken care off. Owner sad they were not going to fix it and he was ready to load it on a trailer with a bunch of other stuff and haul it to the scrap yard. Threw him an offer which was about scrap price and he took it. Going after it after the first of the year. From Bolens to Cub to Kubota all in one day. What's this world coming to.
