Over the Christmas break I was contacted by someone who had seen my Bolens posts on another forum. They had picked up a Bolens whilst doing a clearance and wanted to know if I was interested. I said that I was unlikely to be interested as I am out of space but I was happy to have a look at it and value it for them. This was a foolish offer and I should have known I would be bringing it home. The seller was a great guy and it was refreshing to have a very open and honest conversation about value and price, which worked out well for both of us.

 

The tractor is fitted with the large flat top tiller and is road registered. The tines on the tiller are very badly worn so it has clearly had plenty of use. I am not sure if it is a viable tractor or just a great source of spare parts. It does not move very well having been sat outside for many years so I picked it up with the tipper trailer in case I needed extra help unloading.

The rear fender is in the worst condition and not unusual for a Bolens in the UK

All I have done with it at the moment is remove the tiller and store the tractor and tiller safely

We do wonder if Bolens were ACTUALLY SHIPPED over sometime ! I have found some sand and sea shells in some unusual places in my Bolens. :-)

I seem to remember reading somewhere that nowhere in the UK is more than 50 miles from the coast. The salt air really does have an impact.

Unfortunately the fender I have on a rolling chassis is in the same condition. I may have too see if I can get a couple shipped over when the exchange rate is a bit better.

 

It is a great project for sure and I do fancy having a crack at getting it going again. Looking forward to your visit Chris
