Bolens Diablo Rouge

Equals Bolens Red Devil. My Brother In-law was a Bolens dealer when these were available. They are fun to drive and can maneuver through place that other snowmobiles can only dream about. Make certain that though that the tractor doesn't come unhooked from the sled or you will go for a real ride.
Enjoy you new machine.

SWEET.
You could use it as a tractor in the warm days of the year if it has a hitch for a moldboard.
I need to find one of those for the running gear.They have 2 separate tracks like a small dozer does?

Yes 2 separate tracks but you have to turn the drive unit yourself to turn it.

Just be careful when riding over uneven terrain. I have heard from a few people that own these that the handle bar can take out your knees/legs LOL
