I guess that I have, not necessarily in the Bolens brand. NASCAR seems to have sponsorships in just about everything these days.

I just did a quick google search.
It pops up all over the place.

Rather, I should say, they pop up...

I just bought this model off Craigslist for $500. Came with snow thrower attachment and only has 217 hours. Thats less than my Cub Cadet that is only 5 years old. Having trouble finding the manual for it. Which is what brought me here. :)

Welcome to GTT!

I will do some looking around, but I think manuals for these are a bit hard to find.

Dont seem to be to valueable, as it only went for$ 203.50. I bet the engine was worth that much.

There seems to be alot of these around, which is probably why there is a low value on them

I read somewhere online that there were only 1000 made. It's more than valuable to me. A great mower and thrower for the money. It beats spending $1400 alone for a blower attachment for my Cub .

Yeah, that one has been for sale for a long, LONG time.

I can't believe that it would ever sell at that price.
