Had a guy come last week to pick up some parts,after talking for a while he asked me if I would be interested in HT-20 with a loader,said the tractor had some issues,the driveshaft came apart and bent the crank on the engine,wasn't sure what make the loader was,so made a little road trip today,tractor is a little rough but the loader isn't to bad,tractor fired right up and the loaded moved as it should,turns out it's a Johnson loader,so we made the deal and loaded it up,did some more BS ing,he told me about an old Bolens dealership about 5 miles from his house,said it might be worth stopping by,so off I went,turned out to be well worth it,he said he didn't have much left but I was welcome to look through the crate of stuff,I came home with 50 New mower deck blades and a New Old Stock u-joint for the Sweepster broom,a NOS tiller driveshaft,got to go back for the rest of the stuff tomorrow or Friday,here's a couple pics of the tractor and loader

Looks like a nice tractor. I actually think that tractor was for sale on here last fall.

You're correct. I did some searching and found a pic of the one I remembered. It was a different tractor.

Great haul there Rick.  If that engine runs good I would not be concerned to much about a bent crank.  Kind of hard to bend a crank and not do other damage.

Great find. When you are picking up the additional parts don't forget to ask about literature, signs, promotional materials, and a bone pile. There is always forgotten stuff. Good Luck, Rick

Very nice find Rick and the Bolens dealer finds would be icing on the cake.  I remember about twenty five years ago a friend of mine picked up a similar Bolens with the loader for a good price (wasn't into lawn tractors back then so I do not remember the model).  The engine would not run correctly on it and the previous owner had taken it to several repair places and spent good money to try and get it repaired  without success  - so the owner got sick of it and sold it to my friend.  Turned out there was a welsh plug inside the carburetor that had come loose creating all sorts of fuel supply problems.
