I have to agree, that was not the way to treat a Bolens. The rest are great.

i had a ride-a-matic when i was growing up. it was a 1961 model, and had a k161. i rebuilt the engine and then 6 months later the garage collapsed and destroyed the tractor. i was kind of upset about it. i think i was 17 at the time. i had a mower deck, roto-tiller, single bottom plow, and a snow-thrower. for a small, underpowered machine it was a good worker, doesnt really compare to the 12 hp cub cadet hydro 147 that i have now, but it still worked hard for a smaller machine.kind of wish i still had it.

Too bad it got damaged. :(

What did you end up doing to it?
