I went to the show yesterday and snapped these pictures
There were quite a few garden tractors there this year but hardly any Bolens :mad2:

Each year I go, there seems to be less and less Bolens and More John Deeres! :shoot2: LOL

I'm definitely going to bring a few of mine down next year so I can be there to represent Bolens :D

Thanks for posting the pictures Brian. It looks like a nice show to go to. I thought the 4 X 4 Cub was very interesting. Somebody really put a lot f Fab. time in on that tractor.

Brian, Is that a radial air compressor in pictures 21 & 28? It's a very neat looking machine. Thanks again...

id like to hear more about the red mowing thing sitting by the compressor.

Did anyone notice the garden all walker with what appears to be the same mower unit as a simplicity uses?

Great pics, Brian. Some neat things to see there. Thanks for posting them. I thought the radial air compressor was rather cool. The 4X4 Cub is pretty nice, but needs wider tires from my point of view.

The red sickle mower is a Detroit Harvester. The engine powered the sickle only. They were designed to be pulled with a horse.
I'm not 100% convinced that the other is a Garden-All. The wheels look like it but it almost looks like a gearbox in the back more like a Simplicity. I don't remember G-A having a gearbox. Then there is a big pulley driving the mower and that doesn't look like Simplicity. May not be a good enough picture to tell.
