Brought this a few monthes ago. Got round to picking it up over xmas.
Its in good shape with surface rust. Its a pig to start at the min but hopefully with a good service & carb clean should sort this. It runs well when it goes
Came with the tiller, also in good shape
The battery tray is missing for some reason so be on the hunt for one
Been told they were made for only one year?? 1972/3 ??
Serial 1556 03 202907
Yep one year (1972) check out Bolens 1000's (aka Dr Bolens) thread on the home page about the tube frames , very comprehensive article , good reading !
Check with our site sponsors that specialize in Bolens concerning the battery tray , know Ricks Bolens tractor parts (aka BlackJackJake) had a NOS
listed on Ebay last week.
Decent looking unit, IMO the Tech engines are quirky on the tune and keeping them there , not a knock on them just a observation based on my own experiences.
