Came home with a large load of bolens stuff a handful of weeks back from a auction of a passed away bolens collector.    We showed up and came to find out the old boy had twice the stuff I was thinking he had I was kinda over whelmed at first. I got a idea of what tractors I was going to buy and set out to get as much as I could.  Then the snow came.......  After 6 hours of off and on snow we had 6 inches of snow on the ground! Add the tractors being used to pull around plus put stuff on trailers you got another 6 inches of mud and you got a mess on your hands.    I got all the tractors I hoped for but a handful got away ether because of no room on my trailer or they went for to much money.  Wish I had more room I would of came home with the rest of the walkers I really did not need but could of got for cheap.  I also picked up the very nice dealer sign!

 

More photos to come when I get my new camera battery the old one went bad after getting wet at the auction.

That would be a bolens huski high boy with a very nicely built home made sulky.

 

That is crazy good stuff and a beautiful sign too. If you got any old service manuals you want to sell let me know.

 

What are you looking for Ed? I got tons of spares of some stuff.

Nice load. I see you got a couple more Ridemasters and it looks like they both have the gas tank.

The one is missing the tank and the other is rusted out. The one missing the tank is also my first low tank tractor but it don't have a tag on in it. I did pick up 3 good tanks at that auction.
