Bagged myself another Bolens Husky. 😁😁 Nearly a 500 mile round trip but think it's worth it as I've not seen another. Does run and drive, and very original, shame about the red paint

Nice find :thumbs:  :thumbs: :thumbs:  

 

The 1257 isn't all that common here in the States either.

 

It's one of those "I wonder why Bolens made that?" things  :D  :D :D

It was probably a little cheaper for Bolens to obtain the Techumseh engine over the Wisconsin

That's a rare find Dave. Another hydro for your growing collection.

Where did you pick that up from out of interest?

That might have been, but they were also building the 1256 with the Wisconsin engine at the same time.

 

It would be interesting to see just what the MSRP was on the two.
