Stunning! Brochure worthy!

That being said, how cool would it be to do a brochure remake with a collection of beautifully resotred Bolens?!

Just about too nice to run and use. Are you going to wear clean clothes with no exposed fasteners and white gloves when you touch it, Rick? Simply beautiful!


I need to be honest,I still haven't sat on that seat yet,now I'm concerned about how much grass the reel mower will throw up on the front of the hood, lol

Lovely to look at

Delightful to touch

Go on - get it dirty

You owe us that much

It won't bite

It won't complain

It will thank you

And feel no pain

To do a job the tractor was made

Both the seat and the steering wheel to

To complete the task they need an operator

And that lucky person my friend is you!

Well I have a solution for you, sell me that reel mower and do not risk damaging that little museum piece you have just put together. Tractor looks amazing!

What a difference that made! Doesn't look like the same tractor you posted with the rusty rims.

Which weights are you going to use?

 

The BOLENS weights or the FMC weights?
