So I have a Bolens 1253 and the old rebuilt Tecumseh HH120 engine has given up again. I've looked at replacement engines - the old iron is as expensive or more than the cost of some of the new knock off stuff - for about the same price. So the question is - is it worth repowering the Bolens or should I look for something else that might be better worth repowering? Gravely 400 series? Case?
FYI I had a Cub Low Boy that was too big for my property, loved the tractor though - anybody know something in between the Bolens and that size wise? I saw a Gravely 450 on CL with a rebuilt Onan 16 weighs almost as much as the Cub but about the size of the Bolens.I have a Gravely walk behind that is like a tank - any thoughts on the 4 wheelers?
