I also posted this on the other Bolens site. I was wondering if anyone has compiled a list as to what models were made in what years I know it separates by serial number also. I would like to have a list in my pocket so I could figure out what year some of the RAM's I look at are. It would help on buying manuals also. Some of the sellers have no idea what year they have.  I'm curious, that all. I am an ex-Ford parts manager, so I like to have all the info on what I'm messing with!

Did you go to our manuals section? I know there's some good info there and a lot of manuals that you may not have to purchase. We have some very generous folks who post a lot of good manuals for all to use.

Yes, I've been thru the manual section and downloaded quite a few of them. I like paper, being able to touch it. I'm from the old school, learned the Ford parts business using paper catalogs. I love being able to open a catalog and look up a part on paper. Computers are great for information, but touching a paper catalog, that's the only way to go!

My main question was a breakdown of the years and models.

This shows which models were produced in each year up to 1977.

 

Bolens production, by serial number, was never provided to dealers. 

 

There is also a list of tractor prices at time of production:  http://gardentractor...cing-1947-1963/
