He didn't run into anything and was able to start it up and shut it down. All that on the free Bolens.

That is awesome to see! I remember when I first used my dads riding mower in the yard after a summer of the push mower around the garden.
My son is 7 months old, I excited for him to be old enough to start riding my Bolens around. Though it doesn't need to come to quick.

I am not sure of the model but I have a fellow hold one of those tiny Bolens seat of motor mowers.

Example.

We have a Time Surge here??   Mowing?  Rain/snow/Sleet here in Northern IN at moment. Windy too.  I didn't see state in your personals here.

Nice to have it all come together and be good.  Just don't let him be a racer of them in a few years!

Ya, I was wondering that too, its nasty wind and sleety stuff here too.

Great to see the next generation getting involved...(course addicts don't see anything wrong with their addiction do they?) hmmm...

Gt's way better than a lot of things young folk get into now a days, I think just getting them out of the house is a good start, on a tractor double good !!
