i was wondering what the true end of the line for bolens is. the bolens produced today is a mere shell of its former self. what was the last bolens garden tractor and when did production end? also what was the biggest bolens garden tractor produced? did they have a tractor that competed with tractors like the john deere 400 series and the cub cadet SGT? why are their no bolens garden tractors produced today? is it fear of competing against their self(mtd), not that it matter. in my opinion nothing produced by mtd is worth a hoot.

its sad that mtd keeps the name only to drag it through the mud. does mtd help with parts like they do with the old IH cub cadets? or are they useless

Some of the old Parts are still available through MTD, but not many
