Never had a bolens, there's a 1256 supposedly recently stopped running, looks complete, he's asking 150. Another guy nearby has "tube frame attachments," 1256 is a tube frame, right?
So I'm wondering if these old Wisconsin bolens are cheap to keep running? Parts still available, points, carb kits, etc...?
I'd just be putting a front blade on it for yard cleanup and tug.
i like the idea of having just a few hundred bucks tied up in a machine, instead of a couple thousand in the Case and JD... any old GT is just one sheared bolt away from catastrophic failure....
appreciate any advice/info/tips, they look like cool little tractors, easy to move around, thanks for any help
