I recently moved into a home with about an acre and half of land. Needless to say I need something bigger than the push mower from the other house. I tried convincing the girl friend that it would help get her in shape but all that did was get me called a few nasty names.
Anyhow, This will be my first GT and I’m looking for one that I could use around the house for gardening, lawn mowing, snow removal etc… I would like something a little more robust than a riding lawn mower but smaller then say a Cub cadet low-boy. I have a budget of around 2K.
In comes the Bolens and here is the seller description.
Bolens G14 System. Model 1453. Kohler 14 hp. 6 speed. Excellent condition. Model 73501. Very rare find. 12 HP Kohler. 42" DECK, 33" TILLER (rare), 43" FRONT PLOW, Tires good. You know they don't make them like this anymore. All running, NEW BATTERY. Starts immediately. No problems entire system
He is also the original owner and I’m going to look at it this weekend.
Can anyone bring me up to speed on this tractor, things to look out for, a fair price (he’s asking 1k), are parts going to be available , would this tractor be capable of moving snow in upstate NY (we measure by the foot ) with the plow or will I need to find a blower? Was the Kohler motor an option? Everything Ive read says it should have a Tecumseh.
If this tractor doesn’t work out what are some make/ models to keep an eye out for?
Thank you all in advance.
